  1. pmc Serotonin modulates behavioral reactions to unfairness
    Molly J Crockett
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EB, UK
    Science 320:1739. 2008
    ..Our results suggest that 5-HT plays a critical role in regulating emotion during social decision-making...
  2. doi request reprint The neurochemistry of fairness: clarifying the link between serotonin and prosocial behavior
    Molly J Crockett
    Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, Cambridge, UK
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1167:76-86. 2009
    ..Here, I review the evidence for the role of 5-HT in modulating social decision making and discuss the implications for understanding how prosocial behavior varies between individuals and across social contexts...
  3. pmc Reconciling the role of serotonin in behavioral inhibition and aversion: acute tryptophan depletion abolishes punishment-induced inhibition in humans
    Molly J Crockett
    Behavioral and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 29:11993-9. 2009
    ..These findings extend and clarify previous research on the role of serotonin in aversive processing and behavioral inhibition and fit with current theorizing on the involvement of serotonin in predicting aversive outcomes...
  4. pmc Serotonin selectively influences moral judgment and behavior through effects on harm aversion
    Molly J Crockett
    Department of Experimental Psychology, Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EB, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:17433-8. 2010
    ..Together, these findings provide unique evidence that serotonin could promote prosocial behavior by enhancing harm aversion, a prosocial sentiment that directly affects both moral judgment and moral behavior...
  5. pmc Impulsive choice and altruistic punishment are correlated and increase in tandem with serotonin depletion
    Molly J Crockett
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 3EB, England
    Emotion 10:855-62. 2010
    ..These findings imply that altruistic punishment reflects the absence rather than the presence of self control, and suggest that impulsive choice and altruistic punishment share common neural mechanisms...
  6. pmc Serotonin modulates striatal responses to fairness and retaliation in humans
    Molly J Crockett
    Behavioral and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 1TN, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 33:3505-13. 2013
    ..Our findings demonstrate that serotonin modulates social value processing in the striatum, producing context-dependent effects on social behavior...
  7. pmc Serotonin modulates the effects of Pavlovian aversive predictions on response vigor
    Molly J Crockett
    Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England
    Neuropsychopharmacology 37:2244-52. 2012
    ..These findings suggest additional specificity for the influence of 5-HT on aversively motivated behavioral inhibition and extend recent models of the role of 5-HT in aversive predictions...
  8. pmc 5-HT modulation by acute tryptophan depletion of human instrumental contingency judgements
    Henry W Chase
    Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 213:615-23. 2011
    ..Using acute tryptophan depletion (ATD), we tested the hypothesis that dysfunctional serotoninergic neurotransmission influences contingency judgements in dysphoric subjects via an effect on contextual processing...
