Neuroimage 32:1804-14. 2006..This context also prompted increased activity in the posterior parietal cortex and lateral prefrontal cortex that we attribute to enhanced alertness and sustained attention during unpredictability...
- Placebo in emotional processing--induced expectations of anxiety relief activate a generalized modulatory networkPredrag Petrovic
