Decision‐making and recognition of emotions are often impaired in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) and the amygdala are critical structures subserving these functions. This study was designed to test whether there are any structural changes in these areas that might explain the impairment of decision‐making and recognition of facial emotions in early PD. We used the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT) and the Ekman 60 faces test which are sensitive to the integrity of… 
Structural correlates of facial emotion recognition deficits in Parkinson's disease patients
TLDR
Evaluating gray matter and white matter correlates of FER in a large sample of Parkinson's disease patients shed light on the structural neural bases of the deficits presented by PD patients in this skill.
Facial emotion recognition in Parkinson’s disease: Association with age and olfaction
TLDR
Facial emotion recognition and especially the recognition of surprise are significantly impaired in PD patients compared with age- and sex-matched HC, and the association of FER with age and olfactory function is endorsed by common structures that undergo neurodegeneration in PD.
Impaired Emotional Mirroring in Parkinson’s Disease—A Study on Brain Activation during Processing of Facial Expressions
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a contribution of human homologs of monkey mirror areas to the emotion recognition deficit in Parkinson’s disease.
Facial Emotion Recognition in Parkinson's Disease: An fMRI Investigation
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging data showed similar activation in both groups except for a generally stronger recruitment of somatosensory regions in the patients, which constitutes an important mechanism for emotion recognition.
Decision-making performance in Parkinson's disease correlates with lateral orbitofrontal volume
TLDR
The results indicate that the lateral and medial orbitofrontal cortex are related to decision-making in PD patients.
Recognition of emotions expressed on the face impairments in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
A modified version of the Multimodal Emotion Recognition Test (MERT) was used to compare patients with PD to healthy controls and found both subjects with PD and HCs had lower MERT scores in recognizing negative emotions.
Facial expressions recognition and discrimination in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that facial emotion recognition, and fear expression in particular, is critically affected by neurodegeneration in PD and related to cognitive abilities; however, it appears before other cognitive impairments.
Facial emotion recognition and its relationship to cognition and depressive symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Interestingly, the data suggest FER deficits even in cognitively intact PD patients indicating FER dysfunction prior to the development of overt cognitive dysfunction, as well as age showed a negative association whereas IQ showed a positive association with FER.
Apathy and impaired emotional facial recognition networks overlap in Parkinson's disease: a PET study with conjunction analyses
TLDR
A metabolic study using 18fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18FDG PET) in 36 PD patients without depression and dementia confirms that apathy in PD is partially mediated by impaired EFR, opening up new prospects for alleviating apathetic in PD, such as emotional rehabilitation.
Theory of mind and decision-making processes are impaired in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The present study implies that affective ToM and decision making under ambiguity may share similar neural mechanisms, while decisionMaking under ambiguity and decisionmaking under risk may involve processing within different neural networks.

Deficits in decoding emotional facial expressions in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
Early in the course of Parkinson's disease, untreated PD patients were significantly impaired in decoding EFEs, as well as in executive function, which suggests that in PD, nigrostriatal dopaminergic depletion leads not only to motor and cognitive disturbances but also to emotional information processing deficits.
Specific impairments in the recognition of emotional facial expressions in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Emotional facial expression recognition abilities in non-demented patients with PD and control participants are examined relative to their performance on a non-emotional landscape categorization test with comparable task requirements to call attention to the significant psychosocial impact that facial emotion recognition impairments may have on individuals with PD.
Emotion recognition in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Whereas none of the clinical variables examined in this study predicted any of the ER subscores, visual organization and auditory attention positively predicted OER in patients with PD, and visual organization also positively predicted FEI in these patients.
Facial expression decoding in early Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Findings argue that abnormalities for face processing are not a consistent or generalized feature of medicated adults with mild-moderate PD, prompting discussion of issues that may be contributing to heterogeneity within this literature.
Anatomic evaluation of the orbitofrontal cortex in major depressive disorder
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with MDD have reduced OFC gray matter volumes, although this reduction might be important in understanding the pathophysiology of MDD, its functional and psychopathologic consequences are as yet unclear.
Decision making in Parkinson's disease: Analysis of behavioral and physiological patterns in the Iowa gambling task
Recent studies suggest that social recognition processes are affected by Parkinson's disease (PD). However, whether PD patients exhibit behavioral changes is still controversial. The purpose of the
The recognition of facial emotion expressions in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The clinical characteristics and neural structures involved in the recognition of specific facial emotion expressions, and the plausible role of dopamine transmission and dopamine replacement therapy in these processes are reviewed.
Symptoms of Frontotemporal Dementia Provide Insights into Orbitofrontal Cortex Function and Social Behavior
TLDR
It is argued that phylogenetically new neurons found in this region, called von Economo neurons, are selectively vulnerable in FTD and lose the ability to process complex stimulus‐reward contingencies.
Different Contributions of the Human Amygdala and Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex to Decision-Making
TLDR
The results suggest that amygdala damage is associated with impairment in decision-making and that the roles played by the amygdala and VMF in decision -making are different.
Disgust-specific impairment of facial expression recognition in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
It is indicated that Parkinson's disease can indeed selectively impair the recognition of facial expressions of disgust; this provides concrete evidence for emotion-specific impairments that sufficiently withstands criticisms regarding the difficulty artefacts.
