Shifting the focus of attention modulates amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex reactivity to emotional faces.

Abstract

Functional neuroimaging studies have largely established the prominence of amygdala during emotion processing and prefrontal areas such as anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) during attentional modulation. In general, emotion processing paradigms known to probe amygdala have not been adapted to recruit prefrontal areas. In this study we used a well-known… (More)
