Does autonomic arousal distinguish good and bad decision-making ? Healthy individuals ’ skin conductance and heart rate reactivity during the Iowa Gambling Task
The Somatic Marker Hypothesis (SMH) proposes that physiological feedback to the brain influences cognitive appraisal and decision-making; however, the strength of evidence in support of the SMH isExpand
What have we learned about the processes involved in the Iowa Gambling Task from developmental studies?
Developmental studies using the Iowa Gambling Task or child-friendly adaptations of the IGT are reviewed to show how these findings provide a better understanding of the processes involved in decision-making under uncertainty. Expand
Many disorders of the central nervous system affect judgment and decision making. Along with other impairments of “executive function,” these symptoms have been challenging to understand within aExpand
Recollecting Cross-Cultural Evidences: Are Decision Makers Really Foresighted in Iowa Gambling Task?
In the present review, 86 studies featuring data on individual deck selections were drawn from an initial sample of 958 IGT-related studies published from 1994 to 2017 for further investigation, and the findings suggest that the PDB phenomenon may be cross-cultural. Expand
Social and Emotional Decision-making Following Frontal Lobe Injury
Abstract Neuropsychological, psychophysiological and functional imaging research has begun to offer insights into the everyday difficulties in decision-making experienced by some patients withExpand
COVID-19 cause-related campaigns and consumers’ purchase intention: does religiosity matter?
Purpose This paper aims to propose and test a theoretical framework in which attitude towards COVID-19 cause-related campaigns mediates the effects of identification with the cause, donation size,Expand
Modeling Skin Conductance Response Time Series during Consecutive Rapid Decision-Making under Concurrent Temporal Pressure and Information Ambiguity
A psychophysiological modeling approach is effective for capturing overlapping SCRs and moderate risk-taking under concurrent temporal pressure and information ambiguity is associated with automatic physiological and emotional reactivity. Expand
The Performance of College Students on the Iowa Gambling Task: Differences Between Scoring Approaches.
Receiver operating characteristic curves examining multiple scoring approaches revealed no threshold of impaired performance that both maximized sensitivity and minimized false positive rate on the IGT, suggesting scoring approach matters in the determination of impaired decision making via the I GT in adults. Expand
Deciphering Age Differences in Experience-Based Decision-Making: The Role of Sleep
Findings indicate that sleep promotes learning-based decision-making performance via facilitating value representation, and such modulation is distinct in young compared to older adults. Expand
Electrophysiological Measurement of Emotion and Somatic State Affecting Ambiguity Decision: Evidences From SCRs, ERPs, and HR
The extant electrophysiological research on the Somatic Marker Hypothesis and decision-making under ambiguity is summarized, an integrative perspective for employing different electrophysics measurement methods is proposed, and the application of electrophYSiological measurement based on the SMH in daily social decision- making is indicated.

Decision-making and addiction (part II): myopia for the future or hypersensitivity to reward?
This study addressed the possibility that hypersensitivity to reward may account for the "myopia" for the future in this subgroup of SDI, and measured the skin conductance response (SCR) of subjects after receiving reward (reward SCR) and during their pondering from which deck to choose (anticipatory SCR). Expand
Risky decision making in Huntington's disease
People with Huntington's disease may have had difficulties learning or remembering win/loss contingencies of the decks, or they may have failed to consistently take these into account in their card selections, consistent with current models of frontal-subcortical brain circuits and behavior. Expand
Emotion, decision making and the orbitofrontal cortex.
The somatic marker hypothesis provides a systems-level neuroanatomical and cognitive framework for decisionMaking and the influence on it by emotion and the relationship between emotion, decision making and other cognitive functions of the frontal lobe, namely working memory is reviewed. Expand
Deciding Advantageously Before Knowing the Advantageous Strategy
The results suggest that, in normal individuals, nonconscious biases guide behavior before conscious knowledge does, and without the help of such biases, overt knowledge may be insufficient to ensure advantageous behavior. Expand
Failure to respond autonomically to anticipated future outcomes following damage to prefrontal cortex.
A physiological correlate for the defect of prefrontal damage is identified and its possible significance is discussed, compatible with the idea that these patients fail to activate biasing signals that would serve as value markers in the distinction between choices with good or bad future outcomes.
