    ..Additionally, the association of expressive suppression usage with larger volumes of the medial PFC and dorsal anterior/paracingulate cortex underpins the role of these regions in regulating emotion-expressive behavior. ..

    Neurobiol Learn Mem 113:115-24. 2014
    ..These results point to the important role of dispositional cognitive reappraisal in the development and modification of conditioned emotional responses and might further improve our understanding of anxiety disorders. ..

    Andrea Hermann
    Bender Institute of Neuroimaging, University of Giessen, 35394 Giessen, Germany
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 4:257-67. 2009

    Neurosci Lett 393:174-8. 2006
