Affective neuroscience has seen an explosion of research efforts using modern neuroimaging approaches to uncover the neural basis of emotion and personality. The first section of this paper reviews studies from the domains of affective and forensic neuroimaging. These studies illustrate some of the topics likely to be the subject of future ethical debates. The second section relates limitations of the neuroimaging approach to ethical considerations in predicting future psychopathology on the… Expand
Ethical issues in neuroscience
  • T. Fuchs
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Current opinion in psychiatry
  • 2006
TLDR
The study gives an overview of ethical questions raised by the progress of neuroscience in identifying and intervening in neural correlates of the mind, and potential benefits of applying neuroimaging, psychopharmacology and neurotechnology to mentally ill and healthy persons. Expand
Reviews of Functional MRI: The Ethical Dimensions of Methodological Critique
TLDR
This study analyzes the peer-reviewed review literature involving fMRI as applied to the study of mental health disorders and finds that while authors of reviews do focus a great deal of attention on the methodological limitations of the studies they discussed, they do not frame concerns in ethical terms despite their ethical significance. Expand
Imaging emotional brain functions: Conceptual and methodological issues
  • M. Peper
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Journal of Physiology-Paris
  • 2006
TLDR
A more representative model of assessment is needed that systematically relates the hierarchy of high- and low-level emotion constructs with the corresponding patterns of activity and functional connectivity of the brain. Expand
Neuroticism and the brain: A quantitative meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies investigating emotion processing
TLDR
A quantitative summary of the literature is provided, using a parametric coordinate-based meta-analysis (PCM) approach, to identify brain regions that are consistently associated with neuroticism across studies. Expand
Emerging Ethical Challenges in Advanced Neuroimaging Research: Review, Recommendations and Research Agenda
  • E. Racine, J. Illes
  • Medicine
  • Journal of empirical research on human research ethics : JERHRE
  • 2007
TLDR
An overview of the current landscape for neuroimaging is provided and specific research ethics topics arising from it are discussed to suggest preliminary approaches to tackle current issues, and identify areas for further collaboration between neuroimagers and institutional review boards. Expand
Neuroethics: the practical and the philosophical
  • M. Farah
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
This article reviews key examples of ethical issues raised in cognitive neuroscience, including the relevant advances in science and technology and their accompanying social and philosophical problems. Expand
Monitoring and manipulating the human brain: new neuroscience technologies and their ethical implications
Discusses the use of new neuroscience technologies in monitoring and manipulating brain function, as of May 2004. History of modern brain imaging; Implications of neuroimaging for medical ethics;Expand
Brains in context in the neurolaw debate: the examples of free will and "dangerous" brains.
  • Stephan Schleim
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • International journal of law and psychiatry
  • 2012
TLDR
Concerns are raised that applying neuroscience methods about an individual's responsibility or dangerousness is premature at the present time and carries serious individual and societal risks. Expand
Neuroethics and fMRI: Mapping a Fledgling Relationship
TLDR
It is argued that the ethical challenges of fMRI, and controversy over its conceptual and practical implications, make this essential to integrating ELSI discussion into the research literature. Expand
Ethical and policy issues in the translation of genetic and neuroscience research on addiction
Neuroscience and genetic research of addiction has the potential to improve the treatment and possibly the prevention of addictive disorders and lead to more humane and effective social policies toExpand

Depression: perspectives from affective neuroscience.
TLDR
A model of the ways in which affect can become disordered in depression is constructed and proposals for the specific types of processing abnormalities that result from dysfunctions in different parts of this circuitry are offered. Expand
An fMRI Investigation of Emotional Engagement in Moral Judgment
TLDR
It is argued that moral dilemmas vary systematically in the extent to which they engage emotional processing and that these variations in emotional engagement influence moral judgment. Expand
Amygdala Response to Happy Faces as a Function of Extraversion
Cognitive neuroscience aims to delineate principles of brain-behavior relations by characterizing both common mechanisms across, and individual differences among, individuals. Both approaches areExpand
Anger in healthy men: a PET study using script-driven imagery
TLDR
It is suggested that the subjective experience of anger is associated with rCBF increases in anterior paralimbic regions of the brain, and this study examined the mediating functional neuroanatomy of anger in eight healthy men. Expand
Dysfunction in the neural circuitry of emotion regulation--a possible prelude to violence.
TLDR
It is posited that impulsive aggression and violence arise as a consequence of faulty emotion regulation, and the prefrontal cortex receives a major serotonergic projection, which is dysfunctional in individuals who show impulsive violence. Expand
Emotion, plasticity, context, and regulation: perspectives from affective neuroscience.
The authors present an overview of the neural bases of emotion. They underscore the role of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and amygdala in 2 broad approach- and withdrawal-related emotion systems.Expand
The Study of Personality with Positron Emission Tomography
TLDR
The recent development of the technique of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) now allows direct, nonintrusive measures of brain function in specific areas and structures. Expand
The amygdala: vigilance and emotion
TLDR
A review of available studies examining the human amygdala covers both lesion and electrical stimulation studies as well as the most recent functional neuroimaging studies, and attempts to integrate basic information on normal amygdala function with the current understanding of psychiatric disorders, including pathological anxiety. Expand
An fMRI study of personality influences on brain reactivity to emotional stimuli.
TLDR
This study provides direct evidence that personality is associated with brain reactivity to emotional stimuli and identifies both common and distinct brain regions where such modulation takes place. Expand
Neural Correlates of Levels of Emotional Awareness: Evidence of an Interaction between Emotion and Attention in the Anterior Cingulate Cortex
TLDR
This work used positron emission tomography and 15O-water to measure cerebral blood flow in healthy women during film- and recall-induced emotion and correlated CBF changes attributable to emotion with subjects' scores on the Levels of Emotional Awareness Scale (LEAS), a measure of individual differences in the capacity to experience emotion in a differentiated and complex way.
