Emotions in Voices: An fNIRS Study.

Link – Human Discrimination and Categorization of Emotions in Voices: A Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Study. Abstract Functional Near-Infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neuroimaging tool that has been recently used in a variety of cognitive paradigms. Yet, it remains unclear whether fNIRS is suitable to study complex cognitive processes such as categorization or discrimination. Previously, […]

Quantification of anticipation of excitement with EEG.

Link – Quantification of anticipation of excitement with a three-axial model of emotion with EEG. Abstract OBJECTIVES: Multiple facets of human emotion underlie diverse and sparse neural mechanisms. Among the many existing models of emotion, the two-dimensional circumplex model of emotion is an important theory. The use of the circumplex model allows us to model […]

Stimulating Self-Regulation

Link – Stimulating Self-Regulation: A Review of Non-invasive Brain Stimulation Studies of Goal-Directed Behavior. Front Behav Neurosci. 2018;12:337 Authors: Kelley NJ, Gallucci A, Riva P, Romero Lauro LJ, Schmeichel BJ Abstract Self-regulation enables individuals to guide their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a purposeful manner. Self-regulation is thus crucial for goal-directed behavior and contributes to […]

tDCS/EEG study in facial emotion processing.

Link – A double-blind HD-tDCS/EEG study examining right temporoparietal junction involvement in facial emotion processing. Abstract Prior studies have demonstrated that aspects of social cognition can be modulated via temporoparietal junction (TPJ) transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). However, this technique lacks focality and electrophysiological effects or correlates are rarely examined. The present study investigated whether […]
