    Thalia Wheatley
    Laboratory of Brain and Cognition, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
    Psychol Sci 18:469-74. 2007
    ..Although observing and imagining the moving shapes engaged the mirror system, only activation of the social network was modulated by animacy...

    Christine E Looser
    Hanover, NH 03755
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 8:799-805. 2013
    ..These results suggest that once a face configuration is perceived, faces are further scrutinized for whether the face is alive and worthy of social cognitive resources. ..
  3. pmc Mind perception: real but not artificial faces sustain neural activity beyond the N170/VPP
    Thalia Wheatley
    Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, United States of America

    ..Thus, the right IPL may contain a parsimonious encoding of proximity to self in spatial, temporal, and social frames of reference. ..
  5. doi request reprint Is morality unified? Evidence that distinct neural systems underlie moral judgments of harm, dishonesty, and disgust
    Carolyn Parkinson
    Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 23:3162-80. 2011
    ..These results suggest that moral judgment is not a wholly unified faculty in the human brain, but rather, instantiated in dissociable neural systems that are engaged differentially depending on the type of transgression being judged...

    Christine E Looser
    Dartmouth College, Psychological and Brain Sciences, 6207 Moore Hall, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
    Psychol Sci 21:1854-62. 2010

    Exp Brain Res 229:329-35. 2013
    ..This conclusion has significant implications for our understanding of the neural basis of motor action and potentially for arguments about free will and the causal role of consciousness. ..
