Interactions among extrastriate, inferotemporal, and posterior parietal regions during visual processing, under different attentional and perceptual conditions, are focused on.
Empathy for Pain Involves the Affective but not Sensory Components of Pain

Only that part of the pain network associated with its affective qualities, but not its sensory qualities, mediates empathy, suggesting that the neural substrate for empathic experience does not involve the entire "pain matrix".

In right anterior insular/opercular cortex, neural activity predicted subjects' accuracy in the heartbeat detection task and local gray matter volume correlated with both interoceptive accuracy and subjective ratings of visceral awareness.
Cortical substrates for exploratory decisions in humans
It is shown, in a gambling task, that human subjects' choices can be characterized by a computationally well-regarded strategy for addressing the explore/exploit dilemma, and a model of action selection under uncertainty that involves switching between exploratory and exploitative behavioural modes is suggested.

This work scanned human participants with functional magnetic resonance imaging while they engaged in instrumental conditioning to suggest partly dissociable contributions of the ventral and dorsal striatum to the critic and the actor.
Empathic neural responses are modulated by the perceived fairness of others
It is shown that in men (at least) empathic responses are shaped by valuation of other people's social behaviour, such that they empathize with fair opponents while favouring the physical punishment of unfair opponents, a finding that echoes recent evidence for altruistic punishment.

Distinct spatial frequency sensitivities for processing faces and emotional expressions
An activation of pulvinar and superior colliculus by fearful expressions occurred specifically with low-frequency faces, suggesting that these subcortical pathways may provide coarse fear-related inputs to the amygdala.
