  1. ncbi Dissociating affective evaluation and social cognitive processes in the ventral medial prefrontal cortex
    Wouter 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...
  2. ncbi Dehumanizing the lowest of the low: neuroimaging responses to extreme out-groups
    Lasana 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...
  3. pmc Social groups that elicit disgust are differentially processed in mPFC
    Lasana 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...
  4. ncbi Regions of the MPFC differentially tuned to social and nonsocial affective evaluation
    Lasana 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...
  5. ncbi Toward socially inspired social neuroscience
    Alexander 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...
  6. ncbi Attributions on the brain: neuro-imaging dispositional inferences, beyond theory of mind
    Lasana 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...
  7. pmc On the wrong side of the trolley track: neural correlates of relative social valuation
    Mina 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...
