Tasks requiring subjects to attend emotional attributes of words have been used to study mood-congruent information processing biases in anxiety and affective disorders. In this study we adapted an emotional go/no-go task, for use with fMRI to assess the neural substrates of focusing on emotional attributes of words in normal subjects. The key findings were that responding to targets defined on the basis of meaning of words compared to targets defined on the basis of perceptual features was… 
The neural basis of mood-congruent processing biases in depression.
TLDR
These findings suggest a distinct neural substrate for mood-congruent processing biases in performance and suggest the medial and orbital prefrontal regions may play a key role in mediating the interaction between mood and cognition in affective disorder.
The interaction of emotional and cognitive neural systems in emotionally guided response inhibition
TLDR
The fMRI results suggest that inhibition within an emotional context recruits a distinct set of brain regions that includes areas beyond those normally activated by response inhibition tasks and that can be modulated by emotional valence.
Dissociable neural effects of stimulus valence and preceding context during the inhibition of responses to emotional faces
TLDR
The results suggest that the inhibition of response to emotional cues involves the interaction of partly dissociable limbic and frontoparietal networks that encode emotional cues and use these cues to exert inhibitory control over the motor, attention, and sensory functions needed to perform the task, respectively.
Abnormal ventral frontal response during performance of an affective go/no go task in patients with mania
TLDR
A critical role for ventral and medial dysfunction in the pathology of mania is suggested, which might underpin aspects of cognitive and clinical symptomatology.
Neural substrates of the interaction of emotional stimulus processing and motor inhibitory control: An emotional linguistic go/no-go fMRI study
TLDR
An emotional linguistic go/no-go fMRI paradigm with a factorial block design which joins explicit inhibitory task demand with task-unrelated incidental emotional stimulus valence manipulation is developed, to probe the modulation of the former by the latter.
The Emotional Content of Faces Interferes with Inhibitory Processing: An Event Related Potential Study
Emotional stimuli interfere with other kinds of stimuli processing because they capture attentional resources in accordance with their adaptive importance. This suggests that it would be more
Emotional content modulates response inhibition and perceptual processing.
TLDR
The findings suggest that emotional content impairs response inhibition due to the prioritization of emotional content processing.
Effects of Attention and Emotion on Face Processing in the Human Brain An Event-Related fMRI Study
We used event-related fMRI to assess whether brain responses to fearful versus neutral faces are modulated by spatial attention. Subjects performed a demanding matching task for pairs of stimuli at
Dissociable recruitment of rostral anterior cingulate and inferior frontal cortex in emotional response inhibition
TLDR
It is confirmed that distinct regional dynamics characterize neural responses to affective valence and affective response-inhibition, and implications for understanding psychiatric pathologies characterized by a detrimental susceptibility to emotional cues are discussed, with an emphasis on major depressive disorder.
Neurocognitive assessment of emotional context sensitivity
TLDR
Behavioral and neurocognitive measures are combined to assess context sensitivity in relation to self-report measures of adaptive emotional flexibility and well-being and suggest that pleasant and unpleasant emotions selectively enhance and disrupt components of context sensitivity, and that behavioral and ERP indices ofcontext sensitivity predict flexibility andWell-being.

TLDR
The findings of this study support an hypothesis that emotion and attention modulate both early and late stages of visual processing.

TLDR
The depressed group unexpectedly showed greater vigilance for supraliminal anxiety-relevant words than the anxious group, and the hypothesis of an anxiety-related bias in preconscious processes is supported.

TLDR
Herbster et al. (1997) contribute to the growing literature on the functional neuroanatomy of word reading by evaluating stimulus-specific activation differences and hypothesize that the left inferior frontal gyrus may be part of a phonological pathway which supportsword reading, whereas the fusiform gyrus has been implicated in semantic processing.

TLDR
The progress that has been made in understanding the neural basis of fear and its implications for anxiety disorders is surveyed, as well as the gaps in knowledge.
