    Department of Neurology, Division of Behavioral Neurology and Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa, USA
    J Int Neuropsychol Soc 18:394-401. 2012
    ..This shift is believed to be a driving force for the evolution of the large human cortex. (JINS, 2012, 18, 394-401)...

    Timothy R Koscik
    University of Iowa College of Medicine, IA, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 24:1191-204. 2012
    ..Given the usefulness of transitivity in inferring social relationships, this deficit may be one of the basic features of social conduct problems associated with vmPFC damage...

    Neuropsychologia 71:165-72. 2015
    ..Our findings lend further support to the idea that the insula is important for expressing normal interpersonal trust, perhaps because the insula helps to recognize risk during decision-making and to identify social norm violations. ..
