    Biol Psychol 94:192-7. 2013
    ..These results provide converging neural and psychological evidence that individuals might avoid a deceptive act due to a highly active negative emotional system which would make a deceptive act too stressful and bothersome. ..

    Thomas Baumgartner
    Department of Economics, Laboratory for Social and Neural Systems Research, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    Nat Neurosci 14:1468-74. 2011
    ..These findings suggest that a parsimonious prefrontal network, the activation of right DLPFC and pVMPFC, and the connectivity between them, facilitates subjects' willingness to incur the cost of normative decisions...
