Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to a set of competencies that are essential features of human social life. Although the neural substrates of EI are virtually unknown, it is well established that the prefrontal cortex (PFC) plays a crucial role in human social-emotional behavior. We studied a unique sample of combat veterans from the Vietnam Head Injury Study, which is a prospective, long-term follow-up study of veterans with focal penetrating head injuries. We administered the Mayer-Salovey… Expand
Lesion Mapping the Four-Factor Structure of Emotional Intelligence
TLDR
Findings from a study investigating the neural bases of these specific components for EI in a sample of 130 combat veterans with penetrating traumatic brain injury suggest sub-facets of experiential and strategic EI can be characterized as separable but related processes that depend upon a core network of brain structures within frontal, temporal and parietal cortex.

Emotional Intelligence and Prefrontal Cortex: a Comparative Study Based on Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST)
TLDR
Investigation of the relation between EI and performance in Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) found that people with better EI may have better PFC functions. Expand
Can We “Brain-Train” Emotional Intelligence? A Narrative Review on the Features and Approaches Used in Ability EI Training Studies

Recent studies had demonstrated that specific emotional intelligence (EI) abilities (as measured using the MSCEIT) were related to better performance on cognitive tasks that involved emotionalExpand
The correlation between Emotional Intelligence and gray matter volume in university students
TLDR
Findings indicate that the neural correlates of the EI model, which primarily focuses on the abilities of individuals to appraise and express emotions, can also regulate and utilize emotions to solve problems. Expand
Examining Brain Structures Associated With Emotional Intelligence and the Mediated Effect on Trait Creativity in Young Adults
TLDR
The neuroanatomical basis of the association between EI and TC which measured by the Schutte self-report EI scale and the Williams creativity aptitude test was investigated, and it was confirmed that the brain volumetric variation in the OFC associated with the top-down processing of emotion regulation. Expand
Editorial: Emotional Intelligence and Cognitive Abilities
TLDR
This research topic brings together 14 articles that analyze the relevance of EI in different domains of daily life, including health-related outcomes, social functioning, and academic and workplace performance, and suggest that EI is a relevant and useful variable for understanding and explaining various human processes. Expand
The Role of Emotional vs. Cognitive Intelligence in Economic Decision-Making Amongst Older Adults
TLDR
The data suggest that fluid processing, which involves “online,” bottom-up, cognitive processing, predicts value-based decision-making amongst older adults, while crystallized intelligence, which relies on “offline” previously acquired knowledge, does not. Expand
Regional gray matter density associated with emotional intelligence: Evidence from voxel‐based morphometry
TLDR
These findings suggest that each factor of EI in healthy young people is related to the specific brain regions known to be involved in the networks of social cognition and self‐related recognition, and in the somatic marker circuitry. Expand

The article is an overview of modern studies of brain organization and genetic correlates of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is becoming the subject of more and more attentive study ofExpand

Exploring the neurological substrate of emotional and social intelligence.
TLDR
It is suggested that the neural systems supporting somatic state activation and personal judgment in decision-making may overlap with critical components of a neural circuitry subserving emotional and social intelligence, independent of the neural system supporting cognitive intelligence. Expand
Emotional intelligence: new ability or eclectic traits?
TLDR
EI--conceptualized as an ability--is an important variable both conceptually and empirically, and it shows incremental validity for predicting socially relevant outcomes. Expand
Measuring emotional intelligence with the MSCEIT V2.0.
TLDR
The MSCEIT achieved reasonable reliability, and confirmatory factor analysis supported theoretical models of EI, helping clarify issues raised in earlier articles published in Emotion. Expand
Is the Prefrontal Cortex Important For Fluid Intelligence? A Neuropsychological Study Using Matrix Reasoning
TLDR
The results failed to support the hypothesis that prefrontal damage would disproportionately impair fluid intelligence, and every prefrontal subgroup the authors studied had Matrix Reasoning scores that were indistinguishable from those of the brain-damaged comparison groups. Expand
Emotional intelligence as a standard intelligence.
TLDR
Arguments for the reasonableness of measuring EI as an ability, indicate that correct answers exist, and summarize recent data suggesting that such measures are, indeed, reliable are presented. Expand

TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that insofar as social, decision-making, and emotional functions are concerned, the right-sided component of the VMPC system may be critical, whereas the left- sided component may be less important. Expand
Emotional intelligence meets traditional standards for an intelligence
An intelligence must meet several standard criteria before it can be considered scientifically legitimate. First, it should be capable of being operationalized as a set of abilities. Second, itExpand
The Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory (P-FIT) of intelligence: converging neuroimaging evidence.
TLDR
It is proposed that the P-FIT provides a parsimonious account for many of the empirical observations, to date, which relate individual differences in intelligence test scores to variations in brain structure and function. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that complex cognitive–emotional behaviours have their basis in dynamic coalitions of networks of brain areas, none of which should be conceptualized as specifically affective or cognitive. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that symptoms of frontal lobe damage that have been labeled as emotional disturbances may be classified as disorders of drive or motivation, mood (subjective emotional experience), and affect (emotional expression). Expand
