    Department of Psychology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824 1116, USA
    Psychophysiology 42:604-10. 2005
    ..In addition, comparable and, in some cases, greater stability of emotion modulation was found for short compared to long picture presentations. Stability was generally low for individual probe times for both groups...

    Christine L Larson
    Department of Psychology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824 1116, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 60:410-7. 2006
    ..We hypothesized that activation of the amygdala early in the presentation of fear-relevant visual stimuli would distinguish phobics from nonphobics...
  5. ncbi request reprint Startle potentiation in aversive anticipation: evidence for state but not trait effects
    Jack B Nitschke
    Department of Psychology, University of Wisconsin, Madison 53706 1696, USA
    Psychophysiology 39:254-8. 2002
    ..These data suggest that the aversive nature of stimuli contribute to the potentiation of startle above and beyond the effects of emotional arousal, which may be a universal phenomenon not modulated by individual differences...
  6. doi request reprint Recognizing threat: a simple geometric shape activates neural circuitry for threat detection
    Christine L Larson
    Department of Psychology, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, Milwaukee, WI 53211, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 21:1523-35. 2009
    ..Thus, this simple V-shape is capable of activating neural networks instantiating detection of threat and negative affect, suggesting that recognition of potential danger may be based, in part, on very simple, context-free visual cues...

    Brain Cogn 66:40-9. 2008
    ..These results suggest scene processing areas are particularly sensitive to the 3D geometric structure that distinguishes scenes from other types of complex and meaningful visual stimuli...

    John M Henderson
    Psychology, University of Edinburgh, 7 George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9JZ, UK
    Exp Brain Res 179:75-84. 2007

    Jaime R Silva
    Psychobiology Department, Complutense University, Madrid, Spain
    J Abnorm Psychol 111:676-81. 2002

  1. Chronometry of amygdala response to affective stimuli
    Christine Larson; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..Thus, the major aim of the proposed study is to further examine the dynamic process of the neural substrates of emotional experience, including both time course and magnitude of the neural instantiation of affective processes. ..
