- Understanding the contribution of neural and physiological signal variation to the low repeatability of emotion-induced BOLD responsesI Lipp
Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre CUBRIC, School of Psychology, Cardiff University, UK MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics, Institute of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, Cardiff University, UK
Neuroimage 86:335-42. 2014..This means that the emotion paradigm used in this study might not be useful for studies that require the BOLD response to be a stable measure of emotional processing, for example in the context of biomarkers. ..

- Temporal stability of obsessive-compulsive symptom dimensions in an undergraduate sample: a prospective 2-year follow-up studyMiquel A Fullana
Autonomous University of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Behav Modif 31:815-24. 2007..The results indicate that obsessive-compulsive symptom dimensions tend to be temporally stable in nonclinical participants, replicating similar studies in clinical populations...
- Acquisition and generalization of fear conditioning are not modulated by the BDNF-val66met polymorphism in humansDavid Torrents-Rodas
Department of Psychiatry and Forensic Medicine, Institute of Neurosciences, School of Medicine, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra, Spain
Psychophysiology 49:713-9. 2012..Taken together with previous data, our study suggests that the BDNF-val66met polymorphism has no effect on the acquisition or generalization of fear...
- No effect of trait anxiety on differential fear conditioning or fear generalizationDavid Torrents-Rodas
Department of Psychiatry and Forensic Medicine, Institute of Neurosciences, School of Medicine, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra, Catalonia, Spain
Biol Psychol 92:185-90. 2013..Contrary to our hypotheses, trait anxiety did not have any effect either on the acquisition or the generalization of fear. Our results suggest that these fear conditioning processes are not impaired in individuals at risk from anxiety...
- Influence of individual differences in Behavioral Inhibition System on the magnitude and time course of the fear-potentiated startleMiquel Angel Fullana
Departament de Psiquiatria i de Medicina Legal, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Int J Psychophysiol 60:323-9. 2006..Our data do not support an association between this individual differences variable and the fear-potentiated startle...
- Psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory--revised in a non-clinical sampleMiquel A Fullana
Department of Psychiatry, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
J Anxiety Disord 19:893-903. 2005..The Spanish version of the OCI-R retains the sound psychometric properties of the original version...
- Probing the working memory system in chronic fatigue syndrome: a functional magnetic resonance imaging study using the n-back taskXavier Caseras
Unitat de Psicologia Mèdica, Institut de Neurociencies, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
Psychosom Med 68:947-55. 2006..However, objective evidence supporting these claims is inconsistent. The present functional magnetic resonance imaging study examined the neural correlates of working memory in patients with CFS compared with controls...
- The Relationship between Fearfulness, GABA+, and Fear-Related BOLD Responses in the InsulaIlona Lipp
Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre CUBRIC, School of Psychology, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics, Institute of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom
PLoS ONE 10:e0120101. 2015..Our findings indicate that low insular GABA concentration is not a predisposition for fearfulness, and that several factors influence whether a correlation between GABA and BOLD can be found. ..
- High sensitivity to punishment and low impulsivity in obsessive-compulsive patients with hoarding symptomsMiquel Angel Fullana
Department of Psychiatry and Forensic Medicine, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Psychiatry Res 129:21-7. 2004..High sensitivity to punishment and low novelty seeking in OCD hoarders might explain their poor compliance and response to conventional treatments, but this question needs to be explored further in a prospective treatment study...
