Human Fear Conditioning and Extinction in Neuroimaging: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Differences concerning experimental factors may partly explain the variance between neuroimaging investigations on human fear conditioning and extinction and should be taken into serious consideration in the planning and the interpretation of research projects. Expand
EASE: Examination of Anomalous Self-Experience
TLDR
The EASE does not cover all potential anomalies of experience, but focuses only on the disorders of the self, which cannot be used alone as a diagnostic instrument. Expand
Neural correlates of metaphor processing.
TLDR
Reading metaphors in contrast to literal sentences revealed signal changes in the left lateral inferior frontal, inferior temporal and posterior middle/inferior temporal gyri, which may reflect semantic inferencing processes during the understanding of a metaphor. Expand
Anticipation of monetary and social reward differently activates mesolimbic brain structures in men and women.
TLDR
This study examined how different levels of reward value are coded in the brain for two common forms of human reward: money and social approval to take into account individual differences in reward valuation. Expand
Towards a functional neuroanatomy of self processing: effects of faces and words.
TLDR
The neural correlates of self vs. non-self judgements using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) suggest that regions activated by these stimuli are engaged in self-processing. Expand
Increased neural response related to neutral faces in individuals at risk for psychosis
TLDR
It is indicated that individuals clinically at risk for psychosis show differences in brain activation associated with processing of emotional and--more pronounced--neutral facial expressions despite an adequate behavioral performance. Expand
Task-dependent Modulations of Prefrontal and Hippocampal Activity during Intrinsic Word Production
TLDR
The current data confirm the role of the left prefrontal–cingulate network in constrained word production and show hippocampal activity during spontaneous word production is a novel finding and seems to be dependent on the retrieval process (free vs. constrained) rather than the variety of stimulus–response relationships that is involved. Expand
Neural integration of iconic and unrelated coverbal gestures: A functional MRI study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the processing of speech with speech‐related versus speech‐unrelated gestures occurs in two distinct but partly overlapping networks, interpreted in terms of “auxiliary systems” allowing the integration of speech and gesture in the left temporo‐occipital region. Expand
The differentiation of iconic and metaphoric gestures: Common and unique integration processes
TLDR
The theory that left posterior temporal and inferior frontal brain regions are each uniquely involved in the integration of IC and MP gestures is tested and it is found that there seems to be a division between perceptual‐matching processes within the posterior temporal lobe and higher‐order relational processeswithin the IFG. Expand
Acquired self‐control of insula cortex modulates emotion recognition and brain network connectivity in schizophrenia
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that patients with schizophrenia can learn volitional brain regulation by rtfMRI feedback training leading to changes in the perception of emotions and modulations of the brain network connectivity. Expand
