- Impaired functional but preserved structural connectivity in limbic white matter tracts in youth with conduct disorder or oppositional defiant disorder plus psychopathic traitsElizabeth Carrie Finger
Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences, Schulich School of Medicine, University of Western Ontario, 339 Windermere Road, London, Ontario, Canada N6A 35A5
Psychiatry Res 202:239-44. 2012..If white matter tracts are intact in youths with this disorder, childhood may provide a critical window for intervention and treatment, before significant structural brain abnormalities solidify...
- New potential therapeutic approaches in frontotemporal dementia: oxytocin, vasopressin, and social cognitionElizabeth C Finger
Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences, Schulich School of Medicine, University of Western Ontario, B10 004, 339 Windermere Rd, London, ON, N6A 5A5, Canada
J Mol Neurosci 45:696-701. 2011..Here, we review the effects of oxytocin and vasopressin on social cognition and behavior and discuss the potential implications for these agents as novel treatments in FTD...

- Dissociable roles of medial orbitofrontal cortex in human operant extinction learningElizabeth C Finger
Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, Bethesda, MD, USA
Neuroimage 43:748-55. 2008..These findings suggest that in humans, frontopolar OFC modulates activity in caudal mOFC, rACC and amygdala during successful operant extinction learning...
- Reduced amygdala response to fearful expressions in children and adolescents with callous-unemotional traits and disruptive behavior disordersAbigail A Marsh
Mood and Anxiety Program, NIMH, 15K North Dr, MSC 2670, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
Am J Psychiatry 165:712-20. 2008..Moreover, despite high comorbidity of callous-unemotional traits and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), no research has attempted to distinguish neural correlates of pediatric callous-unemotional traits and ADHD...
- Reduced amygdala-orbitofrontal connectivity during moral judgments in youths with disruptive behavior disorders and psychopathic traitsAbigail A Marsh
Mood and Anxiety Program, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
Psychiatry Res 194:279-86. 2011..These results suggest that psychopathic traits are associated with amygdala and orbitofrontal cortex dysfunction. This dysfunction may relate to previous findings of disrupted moral judgment in this population...

Mood and Anxiety Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 189:387-94. 2006..Acute tryptophan depletion has been associated with the processing of fear-relevant cues, such as emotional expressions, but the effect of genotype at the 5-HTTLPR has not been assessed...

Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
Bipolar Disord 12:707-19. 2010..Here, we use event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to elucidate neural correlates of reversal learning deficits in euthymic BD youth compared to typically developing controls...

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, The University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada
Neuroimage 54:1432-41. 2011..The approach has implications for models of prefrontal function and neurocognitive perspectives on a range of behavioural abnormalities associated with impairments in decision making...
- Caught in the act: the impact of audience on the neural response to morally and socially inappropriate behaviorElizabeth C Finger
Mood and Anxiety Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, 15K, North Drive, MSC 2670, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA
