dlPFC in the processing of emotional dimensions.

Link – The role of dorsolateral and ventromedial prefrontal cortex in the processing of emotional dimensions. Abstract The ventromedial and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex are two major prefrontal regions that usually interact in serving different cognitive functions. On the other hand, these regions are also involved in cognitive processing of emotions but their contribution to emotional […]

EEG-Based Emotion Classification for Alzheimer

Link – EEG-Based Emotion Classification for Alzheimer’s Disease Patients Using Conventional Machine Learning and Recurrent Neural Network Models. Abstract As the number of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) increases, the effort needed to care for these patients increases as well. At the same time, advances in information and sensor technologies have reduced caring costs, providing […]

Sleep’s benefits to emotional processing emerge in the long term.

sleep foc.us

Link – Sleep’s benefits to emotional processing emerge in the long term. Abstract Sleep benefits the long-term preservation of emotional memories, making them accessible even years after the emotional episode has occurred. However, whether sleep also influences the emotional response that gets elicited while retrieving such memories (e.g., by increasing autonomic activity) remains unclear. Here, […]

The effects of tDCS on emotion regulation

Link – The effects of left DLPFC tDCS on emotion regulation, biased attention, and emotional reactivity to negative content. Abstract The potentiation of neural activity in lateral prefrontal regions via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can reduce patterns of biased attention for threat and may facilitate intentional emotion regulation. The current study sought to determine […]

Improving emotional-action control with tACS

tDCS vs tACS

Link – Improving emotional-action control by targeting long-range phase-amplitude neuronal coupling. Abstract Control over emotional action tendencies is essential for everyday interactions. This cognitive function fails occasionally during socially challenging situations, and systematically in social psychopathologies. We delivered dual-site phase-coupled brain stimulation to facilitate theta-gamma phase-amplitude coupling between frontal regions known to implement that form […]

Face emotion perception: evidence from fNIRS


Link – Prosodic influence in face emotion perception: evidence from functional near-infrared spectroscopy. Abstract Emotion is communicated via the integration of concurrently presented information from multiple information channels, such as voice, face, gesture and touch. This study investigated the neural and perceptual correlates of emotion perception as influenced by facial and vocal information by measuring […]

EEG-based emotion recognition

Link – Multi-channel EEG-based emotion recognition via a multi-level features guided capsule network. Abstract In recent years, deep learning (DL) techniques, and in particular convolutional neural networks (CNNs), have shown great potential in electroencephalograph (EEG)-based emotion recognition. However, existing CNN-based EEG emotion recognition methods usually require a relatively complex stage of feature pre-extraction. More importantly, […]

EEG gamma activity to emotional movies

Link – EEG gamma activity to emotional movies in individuals with high traits of primary “successful” psychopathy. Abstract This study aimed to investigate emotional alterations in a community sample with primary psychopathic traits. Sixty males selected from a larger sample and divided in two groups, High (HP) and Low (LP) primary Psychopathy, watched 15 validated […]

fNIRS responses to emotional faces in 5- and 7-month-old infants.

Link – The influence of maternal anxiety and depression symptoms on fNIRS brain responses to emotional faces in 5- and 7-month-old infants. Abstract Greater relative right (versus left) frontal cortical activation to emotional faces as measured with alpha power in the electroencephalogram (EEG), has been considered a promising neural marker of increased vulnerability to psychopathology […]

Frontal brain activity by fNIRS during emotional Stroop task

Link – Frontal brain activity in individuals at risk for schizophrenic psychosis and bipolar disorder during the emotional Stroop task – an fNIRS study. Abstract OBJECTIVES: The emotional Stroop effect is defined as increased reaction times to emotional stimuli compared to neutral ones. It has been often reported in the literature, on both behavioral and […]
