Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN 37212, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 6:621-9. 2011..In individuals with an inhibited temperament, this sustained response may be related to the wariness of social situations that persists beyond initial exposure...
- Amygdala-cingulate intrinsic connectivity is associated with degree of social inhibitionJennifer Urbano Blackford
Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN, United States Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, United States Electronic address
Biol Psychol 99:15-25. 2014..These findings provide important preliminary evidence that social inhibition reflects differences in the underlying intrinsic connectivity of the brain in the absence of social stimuli or stressors. ..
- Amygdala and hippocampus fail to habituate to faces in individuals with an inhibited temperamentJennifer Urbano Blackford

- White matter integrity deficits in prefrontal-amygdala pathways in Williams syndromeSuzanne N Avery
Vanderbilt Brain Institute, Neuroscience Graduate Program, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA
Neuroimage 59:887-94. 2012..These results suggest that deficits in the structural integrity of prefrontal-amygdala white matter pathways might underlie the increased amygdala activity and extreme non-social fears observed in Williams syndrome...
