Amygdalar modulation of frontotemporal connectivity during the inkblot test
Correlation Between Decreased Amygdala Subnuclei Volumes and Impaired Cognitive Functions in Pediatric Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
These findings support previous reports of smaller amygdala volumes and cognitive dysfunctions in PBD, and further mapping abnormalities to specific amygdala subnuclei to expand the understanding of neural abnormalities that could be targeted by treatment.
Projective aspects on cognitive performance: distortions in emotional perception correlate with personality
Several approaches in psychology converge with the concept that individual characteristics may interfere with the perception and interpretation of the world. We hypothesized that such phenomenon
Neural activity during production of rorschach responses: An fMRI study
Implications of Recent Research in Neurobiology for Psychological Assessment
  • S. Finn
  • Psychology
    Journal of personality assessment
  • 2012
TLDR
Findings from current research in attachment, neurobiology, psychopathology, and psychotherapy suggest the relationship between client and assessor is more important than has been acknowledged generally and psychological interventions that promote emotional experience, awareness, and expression are more effective than those that rely solely on cognitive restructuring.
Rorschach Nomological Network and Resting-State Large Scale Brain Networks: Introducing a New Research Design
Abstract. Despite advances in neuroscience, the field of personality assessment has not yet taken full advantage of the progress in neuroimaging techniques. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Can Neuroscience Provide a New Foundation for the Rorschach Variables?
Abstract. Recent progress in neuroscience has made it possible to use neurophysiological techniques to validate and deepen the interpretation of Rorschach variables. The aim of this article is to
The effects of neurological priming on the Rorschach: A pilot experiment on the human movement response
Abstract. This article introduces a new scientific paradigm that might allow the investigation of the neurological correlates of the Rorschach test without using expensive and time consuming tools
The “Feeling of Movement”: Notes on the Rorschach Human Movement Response
TLDR
Two conclusions can be drawn: (a) M is related to the effective use of the mentalization function; and (b) future neuroscientific investigations could lead to an understanding of the neuropsychological mechanisms underlying Rorschach responses and variables.

Amygdala gray matter concentration is associated with extraversion and neuroticism
TLDR
Extraversion was positively correlated with gray matter concentration in the left amygdala, whereas neuroticism was negatively correlated withgray matter concentrationIn the right amygdala, which is consistent with the view that amygdala reduction seen in depressed patients precedes the onset of the disease, rather than being a consequence of the illness.
Neural correlates of formal thought disorder in schizophrenia: preliminary findings from a functional magnetic resonance imaging study.
TLDR
The severity of positive FTD was inversely correlated with the level of activity in the Wernicke area, a region implicated in the production of coherent speech, and reduced activity in this area might contribute to the articulation of incoherent speech.
Cognitive and emotional influences in anterior cingulate cortex
Sensorimotor gating and thought disturbance measured in close temporal proximity in schizophrenic patients.
TLDR
Assessment of information processing and thought disturbance measures in close temporal proximity resulted in strong evidence that gating deficits correlate highly with measures of perceptual and reasoning disturbances, which may form an important basis for the cognitive dysfunction observed among schizophrenic patients.
Regional deficits in brain volume in schizophrenia: a meta-analysis of voxel-based morphometry studies.
TLDR
Voxel-based morphometry can be used as an exploratory whole-brain approach to identify abnormal brain regions in schizophrenia, which should then be validated by using region-of-interest analyses.
The Enigmatic temporal pole: a review of findings on social and emotional processing.
TLDR
It is proposed that the temporal pole binds complex, highly processed perceptual inputs to visceral emotional responses, which means that the integration of emotion with perception is channel specific.
