- Diminished medial prefrontal cortex activity in blood-injection-injury phobiaAndrea Hermann
Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, University of Giessen, Otto Behaghel Str 10 H, 35394 Giessen, Germany
Biol Psychol 75:124-30. 2007..The latter response component might be a result of the elevated disgust sensitivity of BII phobics...
- Emotion regulation in spider phobia: role of the medial prefrontal cortexAndrea Hermann
Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, University of Giessen, 35394 Giessen, Germany
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 4:257-67. 2009..These two forms of phobic emotion regulation deficits are associated with altered activity in different medial prefrontal cortex subregions...
- fMRI responses to pictures of mutilation and contaminationAnne Schienle
Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, University of Giessen, Otto Behaghel Str 10, 35394 Giessen, Germany
Neurosci Lett 393:174-8. 2006..Our results are in disagreement with the idea of selective disgust processing at the insula. They point to a network of brain regions involved in the decoding of stimulus salience and the regulation of attention...
- Social anxiety modulates amygdala activation during social conditioningTanja Pejic
Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Otto Behagel Strasse 10H, Giessen, Germany
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 8:267-76. 2013..In sum, we were able to show that social anxiety is related to conditionability with socially threatening stimuli. This could point to an important aspect in the aetiology of social anxiety disorder...
- Self-referential and anxiety-relevant information processing in subclinical social anxiety: an fMRI studyAnna Abraham
Department of Clinical Psychology, Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Otto Behagel Strasse 10F, 35394 Giessen, Germany
Brain Imaging Behav 7:35-48. 2013..The divergence between the findings is explored in detail with reference to paradigm differences and conceptual issues...

Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Giessen, Germany
J Sex Med 10:1328-42. 2013..Also, most of these studies only compared sexual with neutral stimuli, making it difficult to disentangle sexual stimulus processing from general emotional processing...
