Joint attention (JA) is a cornerstone of adaptive human social functioning. Little functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) research has examined, in interactive paradigms, neural activation underlying bids for JA, met with a congruent or an incongruent social response. We developed a highly naturalistic fMRI paradigm utilizing eye-tracking to create real-time, contingent social responses to participant-initiated JA. During congruent responses to JA bids, we observed increased activation in… Expand
Prosody production networks are modulated by sensory cues and social context
TLDR
Cued emotions increased activity in auditory and—in case of visual stimuli—visual cortex and Sensory, language and reward networks contributed to prosody production and were modulated by cues and social context. Expand
A review of joint attention and social‐cognitive brain systems in typical development and autism spectrum disorder
  • P. Mundy
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The European journal of neuroscience
  • 2018
TLDR
Findings from this literature support and inform the hypothesis that the neurodevelopment of joint attention contributes to the functional development of neural systems for human social cognition, and have the potential to advance current models of social cognition and the social brain. Expand
Look into my eyes: Investigating joint attention using interactive eye-tracking and fMRI in a developmental sample
TLDR
This study provides first-time data on the developmental trajectories of JA and the effect of a familiar interaction partner incorporating the interactive character of JA, its reciprocity and motivational aspects. Expand
Face processing in autism spectrum disorders: From brain regions to brain networks
TLDR
Evidence for atypical activation patterns within brain networks that may contribute to social deficits characteristic of the disorder are summarized and the need for more developmental studies and studies examining ecologically valid and naturalistic social stimuli is highlighted. Expand
The late positive potential indexes a role for emotion during learning of trust from eye-gaze cues
TLDR
These findings provide unique electrophysiological evidence for the role of emotion in learning trust from gaze-cues, suggesting that the retrieval of face evaluations during interaction may take around 1000 ms and that the N250 originates from anterior temporal face patches. Expand
Effects of social context on feedback-related activity in the human ventral striatum
TLDR
These findings support accounts which posit a role of VS in integrating social context into the processing of feedback and, in doing so, signaling its social relevance. Expand
Imaging the “social brain” in schizophrenia: A systematic review of neuroimaging studies of social reward and punishment
TLDR
A systematic literature review of neuroimaging studies involving the presentation of social stimuli intended to elicit feelings of reward and/or punishment in schizophrenia spectrum disorders concludes that people with SSD demonstrated weaker modulation of brain activity in regions within a proposed social interaction network. Expand
Bidirectional signal exchanges and their mechanisms during joint attention interaction – A hyperscanning fMRI study
TLDR
A novel multivariate functional connectivity analysis is used, which enables obtaining directed pathways between four regions at each time-frequency point, with hyper-scanning MRI data of real-time JA interaction to test the hypothesis that social interactions during joint attention (JA) require bidirectional communication. Expand
The mind minds minds: The effect of intentional stance on the neural encoding of joint attention.
TLDR
The findings support previous studies suggesting that intentional stance affects the neural processing of social cues from a virtual character and suggest the use of the P250 and P350 ERPs as objective indices of social engagement during the design of socially approachable robots and virtual agents. Expand
The neural time course of evaluating self-initiated joint attention bids
TLDR
Findings are consistent with previous claims that gaze shifts differing in their social significance modulate central-parietal ERPs 350 ms following the onset of the gaze shift and exclude explanations pertaining to attention modulation or error detection. Expand

What gets the attention of the temporo-parietal junction? An fMRI investigation of attention and theory of mind
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging studies have demonstrated a critical role for a cortical region in the right temporo-parietal junction (RTPJ) in "theory of mind" (ToM), or mental state reasoning, which provides evidence for the ToM hypothesis: the response in these functional regions is selective for mental state content, whether that content is unexpected or expected.

Live face-to-face interaction during fMRI: A new tool for social cognitive neuroscience
TLDR
Functional MRI data collected while participants interacted with a human experimenter face-to-face via live video feed as they engaged in simple cooperative games suggest the rpSTS and rTPJ are key regions for both social interaction and joint attention. Expand
“Stay Tuned”: Inter-Individual Neural Synchronization During Mutual Gaze and Joint Attention
TLDR
Paired subjects showed more prominent correlations than non-paired subjects in the right inferior frontal gyrus, suggesting that this region is involved in sharing intention during eye contact that provides the context for joint attention. Expand
Neural basis of eye gaze processing deficits in autism.
TLDR
It is concluded that lack of modulation of the STS region by gaze shifts that convey different intentions contributes to the eye gaze processing deficits associated with autism. Expand
An fMRI study of joint attention experience
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the neural substrate of joint attention also serves a mentalizing function, and the developmental failure of this substrate in the left anterior frontal lobe may be important in the etiology of autistic spectrum disorder. Expand

Distinct Regions of Right Temporo-Parietal Junction Are Selective for Theory of Mind and Exogenous Attention
TLDR
There are neighboring but distinct regions within the RTPJ implicated in Theory of Mind and orienting attention, which is tested using a high-resolution protocol, within-subjects analyses, and more powerful statistical methods. Expand
Look at this: the neural correlates of initiating and responding to bids for joint attention
TLDR
This novel experimental set-up allowed for the identification of the neural bases of joint attention during a real-time interaction and findings suggest that whether one is the initiator or responder, the dMPFC and right pSTS are selectively recruited during periods of joint Attention. Expand
Activity in right temporo-parietal junction is not selective for theory-of-mind.
TLDR
Functional neuroimaging was used to examine the extent to which cortical loci identified by a "theory-of-mind localizer" also distinguish between trials on a target detection task that varied demands to reorient attention, and results were incompatible with claims of RTPJ selectivity for mental state attribution.
