  1. pmc Frames, biases, and rational decision-making in the human brain
    Benedetto De Martino
    Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, Institute of Neurology, University College London, 12 Queen Square, London WC1 3AR, UK
    Science 313:684-7. 2006
    ..This finding highlights the importance of incorporating emotional processes within models of human choice and suggests how the brain may modulate the effect of these biasing influences to approximate rationality...
  2. pmc Enhanced processing of threat stimuli under limited attentional resources
    Benedetto De Martino
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging UCL, WC1N3BG London, UK
    Cereb Cortex 19:127-33. 2009
    ..We suggest that these data support a model in which a prefrontal "gate" mechanism controls conscious access of emotional information under conditions of limited attentional resources...
  3. pmc Explaining enhanced logical consistency during decision making in autism
    Benedetto De Martino
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London, London WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 28:10746-50. 2008
    ..These data highlight both benefits and costs arising from multiple decision processes in human cognition...
  4. pmc Noradrenergic neuromodulation of human attention for emotional and neutral stimuli
    Benedetto De Martino
    Functional Imaging Laboratory, Institute of Neurology, Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, 12 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3BG, UK
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 197:127-36. 2008
    ..Norepinephrine (NE) has a regulatory role in human attention...
  5. pmc Confidence in value-based choice
    Benedetto De Martino
    Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, London, UK
    Nat Neurosci 16:105-10. 2013
    ..Our findings provide a mechanistic link between noise in value comparison and metacognitive awareness of choice, enabling us both to want and to express knowledge of what we want...
  6. pmc The NMDA agonist D-cycloserine facilitates fear memory consolidation in humans
    Raffael Kalisch
    Functional Imaging Laboratory, Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, University College London, London, UK
    Cereb Cortex 19:187-96. 2009
    ..DCS also enhanced CS-evoked neural responses in a posterior hippocampus/collateral sulcus region and in the medial prefrontal cortex at test. Our data suggest a role for NMDA receptors in regulating fear memory consolidation in humans...
  7. pmc A genetically mediated bias in decision making driven by failure of amygdala control
    Jonathan P Roiser
    Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London, London WC1N 3AR, UK
    J Neurosci 29:5985-91. 2009
    ..These data suggest that genetically mediated differences in prefrontal-amygdala interactions underpin interindividual differences in economic decision making...
  8. pmc How choice reveals and shapes expected hedonic outcome
    Tali Sharot
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, Institute of Neurology, University College London, WCN 3BG London, UK
    J Neurosci 29:3760-5. 2009
    ..Furthermore, before any revaluation induced by the decision process, our data show that BOLD signal in this same region reflects the choices we are likely to make at a later time...
  9. pmc Blocking central opiate function modulates hedonic impact and anterior cingulate response to rewards and losses
    Predrag Petrovic
    Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London, London WC1N 3BG, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 28:10509-16. 2008
    ..Our data indicate that a central opioid system contributes to both reward and loss processing in humans and directly modulates the hedonic experience of outcomes...
