- Dissociating affective evaluation and social cognitive processes in the ventral medial prefrontal cortexWouter van den Bos
University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 7:337-46. 2007..These findings suggest that, within the vmPFC, the PACC subserves primarily an affective function, whereas in other regions social context can modulate affective responses...
- Dehumanizing the lowest of the low: neuroimaging responses to extreme out-groupsLasana T Harris
Psychology Department, Green Hall, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA
Psychol Sci 17:847-53. 2006..No objects, though rated with the same emotions, activated the mPFC. This neural evidence supports the prediction that extreme out-groups may be perceived as less than human, or dehumanized...
- Social groups that elicit disgust are differentially processed in mPFCLasana T Harris
Department of Psychology and Center for the Study of Brain, Mind, and Behavior, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 2:45-51. 2007..This evidence fits differentiated mPFC processing of extreme outgroups, which activate mPFC less than other groups, but suggests that individuation increases activation...
- Regions of the MPFC differentially tuned to social and nonsocial affective evaluationLasana T Harris
Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, USA
Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 7:309-16. 2007..Affective evaluation may be a general function of the MPFC, with some regions being tuned to more specific domains of information (e.g., social) than are others...
- Toward socially inspired social neuroscienceAlexander Todorov
Psychology Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Brain Res 1079:76-85. 2006..Among the implications for social neuroscience: Social cognition intrinsically evokes affect, so social cognitive affective neuroscience glues together a variety of fields in psychological and neurosciences...
- Attributions on the brain: neuro-imaging dispositional inferences, beyond theory of mindLasana T Harris
Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544 1010, USA
Neuroimage 28:763-9. 2005..Thus, activated areas converge with prior neuro-imaging data on theory of mind and social cognition, but more precisely isolate the exact nature of the inferences that activate these areas...
- On the wrong side of the trolley track: neural correlates of relative social valuationMina Cikara
Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 5:404-13. 2010..Moral decisions are not made in a vacuum; intergroup biases and stereotypes weigh heavily on neural systems implicated in moral decision making...
