Background: Little is known about the functional neuroanatomy underlying the processing of emotional stimuli in social phobia. Objectives: To investigate specific brain activation that is associated with the processing of threat and safety signals in social phobics. Methods: Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, brain activation was measured in social phobic and nonphobic subjects during the presentation of angry, happy and neutral facial expressions under free viewing conditions… Expand
