BACKGROUND Emotional information can facilitate or interfere with cognitive processes. In this study, we examined the influence of emotional information in biasing performance and the biological basis underlying this influence. METHODS Ten human subjects (five female) were scanned with functional magnetic resonance imaging while performing an emotional go/nogo task. RESULTS Subjects were slower to approach fearful target expressions and had more difficulty avoiding happy nontarget… 
Fear and stop: A role for the amygdala in motor inhibition by emotional signals
TLDR
The findings suggest that the amygdala may not only promote protective motor reactions in emotionally-significant contexts but also influence the execution of ongoing actions by modulating brain circuits involved in motor control, so as to afford quick and adaptive changes in current behavior.
Dissociable recruitment of rostral anterior cingulate and inferior frontal cortex in emotional response inhibition
TLDR
It is confirmed that distinct regional dynamics characterize neural responses to affective valence and affective response-inhibition, and implications for understanding psychiatric pathologies characterized by a detrimental susceptibility to emotional cues are discussed, with an emphasis on major depressive disorder.
Aversive emotional interference impacts behavior and prefronto-striatal activity during increasing attentional control
TLDR
The results suggest that the impact of negative emotions on attentional processing is differentially elicited at the behavioral and physiological levels as a function of cognitive load.
Response inhibition results in the emotional devaluation of faces: neural correlates as revealed by fMRI.
TLDR
Intensive magnetic resonance imaging is used to investigate the neural mechanism mediating the relationship between inhibitory control and emotional devaluation and offers insights into the neural mechanisms linking inhibitory processes to affective responses.
On the neural control of social emotional behavior.
TLDR
The role of the lateral OFC in the voluntary control of social-motivational behavior is qualified, emphasizing the relevance of this region for selecting rule-driven stimulus- response associations, while overriding automatic (affect-congruent) stimulus-response mappings.
Neural functional correlates of the impact of socio-emotional stimuli on performances on a flanker task in children aged 9–11 years
TLDR
In late school age children, activity in the amygdala seemed to underlie the socio-emotional effect induced by faces but not the emotional conflict, suggesting studying brain regions involved in emotion regulation is important to further understand neurodevelopmental disorders and psychopathologies.
The Impact of Emotional States on Cognitive Control Circuitry and Function
TLDR
It is suggested that emotional states of arousal differentially modulate cognitive control and point to the potential utility of this paradigm for understanding effects of situational and pathological states of aroused on behavior.
Dissociable neural effects of stimulus valence and preceding context during the inhibition of responses to emotional faces
TLDR
The results suggest that the inhibition of response to emotional cues involves the interaction of partly dissociable limbic and frontoparietal networks that encode emotional cues and use these cues to exert inhibitory control over the motor, attention, and sensory functions needed to perform the task, respectively.
Guanfacine modulates the influence of emotional cues on prefrontal cortex activation for cognitive control
TLDR
Evidence is provided that guanfacine stimulation of postsynaptic α2 adrenoceptors moderates DLPFC activation associated with the emotional biasing of response execution processes, which has implications for the α 2 adrenoceptor agonist treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Trait self-consciousness predicts amygdala activation and its functional brain connectivity during emotional suppression: an fMRI analysis
TLDR
The findings suggest that self-consciousness predicts increased difficulty in emotional regulation using expressive suppression; and that the heterogeneous nature of trait neuroticism needs to be considered in exploring the association of neuroticism and emotion regulation.

Neocortical modulation of the amygdala response to fearful stimuli
TLDR
The current results further implicate the importance of neocortical regions, including the prefrontal and anterior cingulate cortices, in regulating emotional responses mediated by the amygdala through conscious evaluation and appraisal.
Modulation of Amygdalar Activity by the Conscious Regulation of Negative Emotion
TLDR
The results suggest that consciously evoked cognitive mechanisms that alter the emotional response of the subject operate, at least in part, by altering the degree of neural activity within the amygdala.
Modulating emotional responses: effects of a neocortical network on the limbic system
TLDR
Functional MRI results provide evidence for a network in which higher regions attenuate emotional responses at the most fundamental levels in the brain and suggest a neural basis for modulating emotional experience through interpretation and labeling.
Task instructions modulate neural responses to fearful facial expressions
TLDR
Neural responses to fearful facial expressions are modulated by task instructions, with maximal activation in these regions occurring during passive viewing, and minimal during performance of the explicit task.
Neural Correlates of Conscious Self-Regulation of Emotion
TLDR
Findings reinforce the view that emotional self-regulation is normally implemented by a neural circuit comprising various prefrontal regions and subcortical limbic structures and suggest that humans have the capacity to influence the electrochemical dynamics of their brains, by voluntarily changing the nature of the mind processes unfolding in the psychological space.
The Emotional Modulation of Cognitive Processing: An fMRI Study
TLDR
Results provide evidence that the emotional valence and arousing nature of stimuli used during the performance of an attention-demanding cognitive task are reflected in discernable, quantitative changes in the functional anatomy associated with task performance.
Cognitive and emotional influences in anterior cingulate cortex
TLDR
Various findings are reviewed in relation to the idea that ACC is a part of a circuit involved in a form of attention that serves to regulate both cognitive and emotional processing, and how the success of this regulation in controlling responses might be correlated with cingulate size.
Neural circuitry underlying voluntary suppression of sadness
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging results confirm the key role played by the DLPFC in emotional self-regulation and indicate that the right DLP FC and right OFC are components of a neural circuit implicated in voluntary suppression of sadness.
Rethinking Feelings: An fMRI Study of the Cognitive Regulation of Emotion
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging findings support the hypothesis that prefrontal cortex is involved in constructing reappraisal strategies that can modulate activity in multiple emotion-processing systems.
A differential neural response in the human amygdala to fearful and happy facial expressions
TLDR
Direct in vivo evidence of a differential neural response in the human amygdala to facial expressions of fear and happiness is reported, providing direct evidence that the humangdala is engaged in processing the emotional salience of faces, with a specificity of response to fearful facial expressions.
