- Seeing happy emotion in fearful and angry faces: qualitative analysis of facial expression recognition in a bilateral amygdala-damaged patientWataru Sato
Department of Cognitive Psychology in Education, Graduate School of Education, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan
Cortex 38:727-42. 2002..More specifically, amygdala-damaged patients seem to give positively biased evaluations for these negative facial expressions...
- Right hemispheric dominance in processing of unconscious negative emotionWataru Sato
Department of Psychology, Graduate School of Letters, Kyoto University, Yoshida Honmachi, Kyoto 606 8501, Japan
Brain Cogn 62:261-6. 2006..These results provided behavioral evidence supporting the hypothesis that the right hemisphere is dominant for unconscious negative emotional processing...
- Enhanced neural activity in response to dynamic facial expressions of emotion: an fMRI studyWataru Sato
Department of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University Yoshida nihonmatsucho, Sakyo, Kyoto, 606 8501, Japan
Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 20:81-91. 2004..In the same manner, the right ventral premotor cortex was also activated. These results identify the neural substrate for enhanced emotional, perceptual/cognitive, and motor processing of dynamic facial expressions of emotion...
- The amygdala processes the emotional significance of facial expressions: an fMRI investigation using the interaction between expression and face directionWataru Sato
Department of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University, Yoshida Nihonmatsucho, Sakyo, Kyoto 606 8501, Japan

- Spontaneous facial mimicry in response to dynamic facial expressionsWataru Sato
Department of Psychology, Graduate School of Letters, Kyoto University, Yoshida Honmachi, Sakyo ku, Kyoto 606 8501, Japan
Cognition 104:1-18. 2007..These results indicate that dynamic facial expressions elicit spontaneous and rapid facial mimicry, which functions both as a form of intra-individual processing and as inter-individual communication...
- Attentional shift by gaze is triggered without awarenessWataru Sato
Department of Comparative Study of Cognitive Development, Primate Research Institute, Kyoto University, Inuyama, Aichi, 484 8506, Japan
Exp Brain Res 183:87-94. 2007..These findings indicate that attentional shift can be triggered even without awareness in response to another individual's eye gaze or head direction...
- Right hemispheric dominance in gaze-triggered reflexive shift of attention in humansTakashi Okada
Department of Neuropsychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, Kyoto University, Japan
Brain Cogn 62:128-33. 2006..This held true regardless of individual hemispheric dominance in face processing. Together, these results indicate right hemispheric dominance in gaze-triggered reflexive shifts of attention in normal healthy subjects...

Kyoto University Center for Student Health, Kyoto, Japan
Asian Pac J Cancer Prev 4:141-5. 2003..Measures should be taken against smoking behavior focusing on freshmen and considering their lifestyle...
- Involvement of medial temporal structures in reflexive attentional shift by gazeTakashi Okada
Department of Neuropsychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, Kyoto University 54 Shogoin Kawaharacho, Sakyo ku, Kyoto, 606 8507, Japan
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 3:80-8. 2008..These findings suggest that the medial temporal structures, including the amygdala, play a crucial role in the reflexive shift of attention triggered by another person's gaze direction in humans...
- Predictors of in-hospital outcome after primary percutaneous coronary intervention for recurrent myocardial infarctionJun Shiraishi
Department of Cardiology, Kyoto First Red Cross Hospital, and Department of Cardiology and Vascular Regenerative Medicine, Kyhoto Prefectural University School of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan
