  1. ncbi request reprint The human startle reflex and pons activation: a regional cerebral blood flow study
    Anna Pissiota
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Eur J Neurosci 15:395-8. 2002
    ..Thus we conclude that the neurofunctional correlates of the startle circuit and its habituation in humans are similar to that previously described in animals...

    Anna Pissiota
    Uppsala University, Department of Psychology, Box 1225, 75142 Uppsala, Sweden

  3. ncbi request reprint Amygdala and anterior cingulate cortex activation during affective startle modulation: a PET study of fear
    Anna Pissiota
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Eur J Neurosci 18:1325-31. 2003
    ..Thus, we suggest that the amygdaloid area and the ACC form part of a neural system dedicated to attention and orientation to danger, and that this network modulates startle during negative affect...
  4. doi request reprint A link between serotonin-related gene polymorphisms, amygdala activity, and placebo-induced relief from social anxiety
    Tomas Furmark
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    J Neurosci 28:13066-74. 2008
    ..Hence, our study shows, for the first time, evidence of a link between genetically controlled serotonergic modulation of amygdala activity and placebo-induced anxiety relief...

    Fredrik Ahs
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden

    Fredrik Ahs
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Psychophysiology 48:1463-9. 2011
    ..Electrodermal activity further mediated the amygdala effect on parahippocampal activity. Memory encoding during phobic fear therefore seems contingent on amygdala's influence on arousal and parahippocampal activity...

    Jonas Engman
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Eur Neuropsychopharmacol 22:562-8. 2012
    ..The observed pattern of NK1 receptor distribution in the brain might have functional significance for brain-related disorders showing age- and sex-related differences in prevalence...
  9. ncbi request reprint Symptom provocation in specific phobia affects the substance P neurokinin-1 receptor system
    Asa Michelgård
    Department of Neuroscience, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    Biol Psychiatry 61:1002-6. 2007
    ..This positron emission tomography (PET) study evaluated how the activity in the SP-NK1 receptor system in the amygdala was affected by fear provocation in subjects with specific phobia...
  10. pmc Genotype over-diagnosis in amygdala responsiveness: affective processing in social anxiety disorder
    Tomas Furmark
    Department of Psychology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden

    Arch Gen Psychiatry 59:425-33. 2002
