    Science 314:829-32. 2006
    ..Importantly, however, subjects still judge such offers as very unfair, which indicates that the right DLPFC plays a key role in the implementation of fairness-related behaviors...
  3. ncbi Suppressing versus releasing a habit: frequency-dependent effects of prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation
    Daria Knoch
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland
    Cereb Cortex 15:885-7. 2005
    ..These findings confirm the functional importance of specifically the left DLPFC in sequential response production and show, for the first time, that rTMS affects cognitive processing in a frequency-dependent manner...
  4. ncbi Resisting the power of temptations: the right prefrontal cortex and self-control
    Daria Knoch
    Institute of Empirircal Research in Economics, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1104:123-34. 2007
    ..Based on the results of these studies, we dare to claim that the capacity to resist temptation depends on the activity level of the right prefrontal cortex (PFC)...
  5. doi Dorsolateral and ventromedial prefrontal cortex orchestrate normative choice
    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...
  6. doi Tonic activity level in the right prefrontal cortex predicts individuals' risk taking
    Lorena R R Gianotti

    Daria Knoch
    Institute for Empirical Research in Economics, University of Zurich, 8006 Zurich, Switzerland
    Cereb Cortex 18:1987-90. 2008
    ..Here we show that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can overcome these limits. We apply right prefrontal cathodal tDCS and show that subjects' propensity to punish unfair behavior is reduced significantly...

    Marianne Regard
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland
    Cogn Behav Neurol 16:47-53. 2003
    ..Because gamblers are not regarded as "brain-lesioned" and gambling is nontoxic, gambling is a model to test whether addicted "healthy" people are relatively impaired in frontolimbic neuropsychological functions...

    Nicolas Langer
    Division of Neuropsychology, Institute of Psychology, University of Zurich, Zurich 8050, Switzerland
    Hum Brain Mapp 33:1393-406. 2012
    ..These theories are currently the most established intelligence theories in neuroscience. Our findings revealed robust evidence of an efficiently organized resting state functional brain network for highly productive cognitions...

    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland

    Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 25:372-4. 2005
