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 […]

Prefrontal Regions in Persons With High Openness Personality Trait.

Link – Viewing Romantic and Friendship Interactions Activate Prefrontal Regions in Persons With High Openness Personality Trait. Abstract The personality traits we have and the closeness we experience in our relationships inevitably color the lenses through which we perceive social interactions. As such, the varying perceptions of our social relationships could indicate underlying differences in […]

Correlates of Emotion and Food Craving Regulation

Link – Clinical and Neurophysiological Correlates of Emotion and Food Craving Regulation in Patients with Anorexia Nervosa. Abstract BACKGROUND: Difficulties in emotion regulation and craving regulation have been linked to eating symptomatology in patients with anorexia nervosa (AN), contributing to the maintenance of their eating disorder. METHODS: To investigate clinical and electrophysiological correlates of these […]

Electrophysiological and vascular signatures of implicit emotional prosody.

Link – Uncovering electrophysiological and vascular signatures of implicit emotional prosody. Abstract The capability of differentiating between various emotional states in speech displays a crucial prerequisite for successful social interactions. The aim of the present study was to investigate neural processes underlying this differentiating ability by applying a simultaneous neuroscientific approach in order to gain […]

Link – Multimodal Affective State Assessment Using fNIRS + EEG and Spontaneous Facial Expression. Brain Sci. 2020 Feb 06;10(2): Authors: Sun Y, Ayaz H, Akansu AN Abstract Human facial expressions are regarded as a vital indicator of one’s emotion and intention, and even reveal the state of health and wellbeing. Emotional states have been associated […]

Investigating Age-Related Neural Compensation

Link – Investigating Age-Related Neural Compensation During Emotion Perception Using Electroencephalography. Brain Sci. 2020 Jan 23;10(2): Authors: Yang T, Di Bernardi Luft C, Sun P, Bhattacharya J, Banissy MJ Abstract Previous research suggests declines in emotion perception in older as compared to younger adults, but the underlying neural mechanisms remain unclear. Here, we address this […]
