  2. pmc Fearful faces but not fearful eyes alone delay attention disengagement in 7-month-old infants
    Mikko J Peltola
    Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Finland
    Emotion 9:560-5. 2009
    ..Together, these results provide evidence that threat-related stimuli tend to hold attention preferentially in 7-month-old infants and that the effect does not reflect a simple response to differentially salient eyes in fearful faces...
  3. pmc Emergence of enhanced attention to fearful faces between 5 and 7 months of age
    Mikko J Peltola
    Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Finland
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 4:134-42. 2009
    ..It is suggested that an enhanced sensitivity to facial signals of threat emerges between 5 and 7 months of age, and it may reflect functional development of the neural mechanisms involved in processing of emotionally significant stimuli...
  4. doi request reprint Enhanced cardiac and attentional responding to fearful faces in 7-month-old infants
    Mikko J Peltola
    Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
    Psychophysiology 48:1291-8. 2011
    ..For trials with a distractor-directed saccade, no difference between fearful and happy faces emerged. Thus, the bias to attend preferentially to fearful faces is accompanied by a concomitant increase in the cardiac orienting response...

    Jari K Hietanen
    Human Information Processing Laboratory, Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, FIN 33014, Finland

    Laura M Pönkänen
    Human Information Processing Laboratory, School of Social Sciences and Humanities, University of Tampere, Finland
    Int J Psychophysiol 82:180-7. 2011
    ..Thus, the motivation- and affect-related psychophysiological responses to gaze direction are most discriminative in the presence of another person, regardless of whether the face/gaze is actively monitored or not...
  7. doi request reprint Facing a real person: an event-related potential study
    Laura M Pönkänen
    Human Information Processing Laboratory, Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
    Neuroreport 19:497-501. 2008
    ..The results indicate that a live face, as a potentially interacting stimulus, is processed differently than an inanimate face already at the early processing stages...

    J Child Psychol Psychiatry 52:1144-52. 2011
    ..Here, we examined the hypothesis that the TPH2 -703 may act during early stages of development and bias the acquisition of elementary cognitive processes involved in attention and emotion regulation...
