Perception of fearful faces is associated with functional activation of cortico-limbic structures, which has been found altered in individuals with psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, autism and major depression. The objective of this study was to isolate the brain response to the features of standardized fearful faces by incorporating principal component analysis (PCA) into the analysis of neuroimaging data of healthy volunteers and individuals with schizophrenia. At the first stage… Expand
Lower effective connectivity between amygdala and parietal regions in response to fearful faces in schizophrenia
TLDR
The reduced amygdala connectivity in schizophrenia is examined to show that when looking at fearful compared to neutral faces patients with schizophrenia show significantly reduced effective connectivity from the amygdala to a large cluster of regions including parts of the precuneus and parietal lobe, compared to healthy controls.

fMRI Response of Parietal Brain Areas to Sad Facial Stimuli in Mild Depression
TLDR
The pattern of response to different emotions was universal in both groups and included the largest clusters in the occipital region, as well as a certain volume in the parietal lobes and posterior lateral frontal cortex. Expand
Response of Schizophrenic Patients to Dynamic Facial Expressions: An Event-Related Potentials Study
TLDR
A combination of hypersensitivity to static emotions and hyposensitivity to dynamic emotions in people with schizophrenia might underlie the absence of differences in response to these stimuli. Expand
Different facial recognition patterns in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder assessed using a computerized emotional perception test and fMRI.
TLDR
The emotional perception index (EPI) was higher in the schizophrenia group than in the bipolar and healthy control (lowest) groups, and schizophrenic patients showed decreased emotion recognition abilities compared with bipolar patients. Expand
Parametric modulation of neural activity by emotion in youth with bipolar disorder, youth with severe mood dysregulation, and healthy volunteers.
TLDR
These findings demonstrate similarities and differences in the neural correlates of facial emotion processing in BD and SMD, suggesting that these distinct clinical presentations may reflect differing dysfunctions along a mood disorders spectrum. Expand
Common and specific brain responses to scenic emotional stimuli
TLDR
Brain regions involved in processing of scenic emotion resemble those reported for facial expressions of emotion in that they respond to a range of different emotions, although there appears to be specificity in the intensity and direction of the response. Expand
Impaired mixed emotion processing in the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex in schizophrenia: an fMRI study
TLDR
The results indicate that fear and mixed happy/fear processing are impaired in schizophrenia, while happy facial expression processing is relatively intact. Expand
Extract and Analysis Different Features of Activation Area of the Fusiform Gyrus of Human Brain to Explore Autism
Autism is a potential threat to the present world. A great number of individuals in the world have been suffering from autism.Recent studies show abnormalities in the various regions of brain inExpand
In search of neural mechanisms of mirror neuron dysfunction in schizophrenia: resting state functional connectivity approach.
TLDR
Investigation of resting state functional connectivity in ROIs suggests schizophrenia patients exhibit FC of STG which corresponds to the previously reported changes of superior temporal gyrus in schizophrenia and might contribute to the disturbances of specific functions, such as emotional processing or spatial awareness. Expand
The structural and functional correlates of the efficiency in fearful face detection
TLDR
The results suggested that the anatomical structure of the left fusiform gyrus might determine the search efficiency of fearful face, and frontoparietal attention network involved in this process through top‐down attentional modulation. Expand

A Reversal of the Normal Pattern of Parahippocampal Response to Neutral and Fearful Faces Is Associated with Reality Distortion in Schizophrenia
TLDR
An abnormally increased parahippocampal response to neutral faces was positively associated with reality distortion in SZ, which may underlie the previously reported finding of a misattribution of emotional salience to nonsalient social stimuli in schizophrenia. Expand
An Event Related Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study of Facial Emotion Processing in Asperger Syndrome
TLDR
Fusiform and extrastriate cortices are activated by facial expressions of four primary emotions in people with AS, but generally to a lesser degree than controls. Expand
Neural structures associated with recognition of facial expressions of basic emotions
TLDR
The results support the hypotheses derived from neuropsychological findings, that recognition of disgust, fear and anger is based on separate neural systems, and that the output of these systems converges on frontal regions for further information processing. Expand
A neuromodulatory role for the human amygdala in processing emotional facial expressions.
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging confirmed that the amygdala and some of its functionally connected structures mediate specific neural responses to fearful expressions and demonstrated that amygdalar responses predict expression-specific neural activity in extrastriate cortex. Expand

TLDR
Functional neuroimaging results provide evidence for dissociable, but interlocking, systems for the processing of distinct categories of negative facial expression. Expand

Visual scanpaths to threat-related faces in deluded schizophrenia
TLDR
A controlled attentional bias away from the feature areas of negative facial expressions in deluded schizophrenia, that is, specific to threat-related expressions compared with non-deluded schizophrenia subjects is suggested. Expand
Association between Amygdala Hyperactivity to Harsh Faces and Severity of Social Anxiety in Generalized Social Phobia
TLDR
The findings suggest that amygdala activation to interpersonal threat can be specifically linked to the severity of social anxiety symptoms of individual GSP patients, and thus, may serve as a useful functional marker of disease severity. Expand
