- The role of the medial prefrontal cortex in social categorizationPascal Molenberghs
School of Psychology, McElwain Building, The University of Queensland, St Lucia, Queensland 4072, Australia
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 9:292-6. 2014..This effect was found to be associated with the level of group identification. These results confirm the role of MPFC in social categorization. ..
- The neuroscience of in-group biasPascal Molenberghs
School of Psychology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia Electronic address
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 37:1530-6. 2013..These insights have important implications for our understanding of how in-group biases develop and could potentially lead to new insights on how to reduce them. ..
- Seeing is believing: neural mechanisms of action-perception are biased by team membershipPascal Molenberghs
The University of Queensland, Queensland Brain Institute, QLD 4072, Australia
Hum Brain Mapp 34:2055-68. 2013..Our findings suggest that the neural mechanisms that underlie human perception are shaped by social context...
- Brain regions with mirror properties: a meta-analysis of 125 human fMRI studiesPascal Molenberghs
The University of Queensland, Queensland Brain Institute and School of Psychology, Queensland 4072, Australia
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 36:341-9. 2012....
- Testing for spatial neglect with line bisection and target cancellation: are both tasks really unrelated?Pascal Molenberghs
School of Psychology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
PLoS ONE 6:e23017. 2011..The results suggest that both tasks probe the same underlying cortical deficits and although the cancellation task was more sensitive than the line bisection task, both can be used in a clinical setting to test for spatial neglect...
- Activation patterns during action observation are modulated by context in mirror system areasPascal Molenberghs
The University of Queensland, Queensland Brain Institute, School of Psychology, QLD 4072, Australia
Neuroimage 59:608-15. 2012..This is consistent with the view that these regions do not merely process observed actions passively, but play an active role in action understanding...
- Is the mirror neuron system involved in imitation? A short review and meta-analysisPascal Molenberghs
The University of Queensland, Queensland Brain Institute and School of Psychology, St Lucia, Australia
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 33:975-80. 2009..Our results suggest that parietal and frontal regions which extend beyond the classical mirror neuron network are crucial for imitation...
- The role of the superior temporal sulcus and the mirror neuron system in imitationPascal Molenberghs
The University of Queensland, Queensland Brain Institute and School of Psychology, St Lucia, Queensland, Australia
Hum Brain Mapp 31:1316-26. 2010..We suggest that the role of the STS in imitation is not merely to passively register observed biological motion, but rather to actively represent visuomotor correspondences between one's own actions and the actions of others...
- The neuroscience of group membershipSamantha Morrison
The University of Queensland, School of Psychology, QLD 4072, Australia
Neuropsychologia 50:2114-20. 2012..These regions correspond to a neural network previously identified as the 'personal self'. Our results suggest that the 'social' and 'personal self' are closely related and that we derive our self image from the groups we belong to...
- Is there a critical lesion site for unilateral spatial neglect? A meta-analysis using activation likelihood estimationPascal Molenberghs
School of Psychology, The University of Queensland, Brisbane QLD, Australia
Front Hum Neurosci 6:78. 2012..Future progress in delineating the neuropathological correlates of spatial neglect will depend upon the development of more refined measures of perceptual and cognitive functions than those currently available in the clinical setting...
