Introduction Neuroticism is a complex personality trait encompassing diverse aspects. Notably, high levels of neuroticism are related to the onset of psychiatric conditions, including anxiety and mood disorders. Personality traits are stable individual features; therefore, they can be expected to be associated with stable neurobiological features, including the Brain Resting State (RS) activity as measured by fMRI. Several metrics have been used to describe RS properties, yielding rather… 
Robust prediction of individual personality from brain functional connectome
TLDR
The finding of robust personality prediction from an individual’s unique functional connectome may help advance the translation of ‘brain connectivity fingerprinting’ into real-world personality psychological settings.
Neuroticism modulates neural activities of posterior cingulate cortex and thalamus during psychosocial stress processing.
TLDR
The findings highlight the crucial role of PCC/precuneus and thalamus in the association between neuroticism and stress and may provide insight into the cognitive model of depression.
You do not have to act to be impulsive: Brain resting-state activity predicts performance and impulsivity on the Balloon Analogue Risk Task
TLDR
The results suggest that impulsivity and ability to change strategies according to external cues are trait characteristics shaped in the RS's functional architecture that can be detected also when individuals are not engaged in decision-making tasks.
The manifestation of individual differences in sensitivity to punishment during resting state is modulated by eye state
TLDR
The results may suggest underlying differences in the connectivity between anxiety-related areas based on eye state, which in turn would affect the manifestation of individual differences in SP.
Delay discounting is predicted by scale-free dynamics of default mode network and salience network
TLDR
The results suggest the individual delay discounting is associated with the dynamics of inner-network interactions in the DMN and SN, and highlight the crucial role of scale-free dynamic properties of function networks on intertemporal choice.
Is Our Self Related to Personality? A Neuropsychodynamic Model
The concept and the assessment of personality have been extensively discussed in psychoanalysis and in clinical psychology over the years. Nowadays there is large consensus in considering the
Regional Hurst Exponent Reflects Impulsivity-Related Alterations in Fronto-Hippocampal Pathways Within the Waiting Impulsivity Network
TLDR
Current findings supported the relation of H toward memory processing even when further prominent cognitive functions were involved, and found that the alterations of H predominantly correlated with fronto-hippocampal pathways and correlations were significant only in highIMP subjects.
Better Safe Than Sorry: A Common Signature of General Vulnerability for Psychopathology
TLDR
This article presents a theoretical perspective within a predictive-processing framework in which it is suggested that the phenomenally distinct cognitive and affective psychopathological characteristics represent the same basic processing heuristic of the brain and are only different in relation to the particular type of information involved.
Fractal-Based Analysis of fMRI BOLD Signal During Naturalistic Viewing Conditions
Background: Temporal fractals are characterized by prominent scale-invariance and self-similarity across time scales. Monofractal analysis quantifies this scaling behavior in a single parameter, the
Network Approaches to Understand Individual Differences in Brain Connectivity: Opportunities for Personality Neuroscience
TLDR
The current evidence for brain networks involved in cognitive functioning is examined and some preliminary evidence linking static network properties to individual differences in social and emotional functioning is reviewed, as well as the applicability of emerging dynamic network methods for examining individual differences.

The Effect of Criticism on Functional Brain Connectivity and Associations with Neuroticism
TLDR
The findings showed enhanced functional connectivity between the clustered seed regions and brain areas involved in emotion processing and social cognition during the processing of criticism, which may suggest that the criticized person is attempting to understand the beliefs, perceptions and feelings of the critic in order to facilitate flexible and adaptive social behavior.
Neuronal correlates of the five factor model (FFM) of human personality: Multimodal imaging in a large healthy sample
TLDR
The results provide novel evidence of the associations between brain structure and variations in human personality, and corroborate previous findings of a consistent neuroanatomical basis of negative emotionality.
The Modulating Effect of Personality Traits on Neural Error Monitoring: Evidence from Event-Related fMRI
TLDR
Results illustrate that for predicting individual responses to errors underlying personality traits should be taken into account and also lend external validity to the personality trait approach suggesting that personality constructs do reflect more than mere descriptive taxonomies.
Proneness to social anxiety modulates neural complexity in the absence of exposure: A resting state fMRI study using Hurst exponent
TLDR
The data indicate that spontaneous brain activity is influenced by the degree of social anxiety, on a continuum and in the absence of social stimuli, and suggest that social anxiety is a trait characteristic that shapes brain activity and predisposes to different reactions in social contexts.
Personality traits and the amplitude of spontaneous low-frequency oscillations during resting state
TLDR
The results revealed the neural substrates of Extraversion, Neuroticism, Openness, and Conscientiousness in the amplitude of spontaneous LFO.
Randomness of resting-state brain oscillations encodes Gray's personality trait
TLDR
Evidence is provided for an association between individual differences in Gray's Impulsivity and randomness in key areas of the reward system which have previously been associated with this personality trait and it is suggested that this association might arise from resting-state fluctuations constraining task-related neural responsiveness.
The Big Five default brain: functional evidence
TLDR
Previous functional correlates regarding the Big Five personality dimensions are confirmed and knowledge is expanded showing the association between different personality dimensions and specific patterns of brain activation at rest is expanded.
Specific frequency bands of amplitude low‐frequency oscillation encodes personality
TLDR
The findings suggest the important relationships, between personality and LFF amplitude dynamic, depend on specific frequency bands, also implying neural circuit underlying emotional process influencing on personality.
The synchronization of spontaneous BOLD activity predicts extraversion and neuroticism
TLDR
These findings shed light on the important relationship between the synchronization of spontaneous fluctuations and personality dimensions of extraversion and neuroticism, which provide further evidence for the neural underpinning of individual difference in personality traits.
Relationship between Personality and Gray Matter Volume in Healthy Young Adults: A Voxel-Based Morphometric Study
TLDR
