Clinic for General and Social Psychiatry, Psychiatric University Hospital Zurich, CH 8006 Zurich, Switzerland
Neuroreport 21:601-5. 2010..It strengthens the hypothesis of a 'pessimistic' bias of brain activation toward ambiguous emotional events...
- Chronometric features of processing unpleasant stimuli: a functional MRI-based transcranial magnetic stimulation studyTina Kaffenberger

Department of Neuropsychology, Laboratory for Neuroeconomics and Social Neurosciences, Institute for Empirical Research in Economics, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
Neuroreport 18:261-5. 2007..These findings strongly indicate that arousal is a necessary, but not sufficient, prerequisite for triggering the motor system of the brain. We offer a potential explanation for this discrepant, but intriguing, finding in the paper...

Neuroimage 34:848-58. 2007..Their activity appears to reflect a 'pessimistic' bias by anticipating the events of unknown valence to be unpleasant...
- Dorsolateral and ventromedial prefrontal cortex orchestrate normative choiceThomas Baumgartner
Department of Economics, Laboratory for Social and Neural Systems Research, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
Nat Neurosci 14:1468-74. 2011..These findings suggest that a parsimonious prefrontal network, the activation of right DLPFC and pVMPFC, and the connectivity between them, facilitates subjects' willingness to incur the cost of normative decisions...

Institute for Empirical Research in Economics and Neuroeconomics, University of Zurich, Switzerland
Cyberpsychol Behav 9:30-45. 2006..Thus, the result of our study implies that the increased spatial presence experience in children may result from the not fully developed control functions of the frontal cortex...

Institute of Psychology, Department of Neuropsychology, University of Zurich, Switzerland
Behav Brain Funct 4:33. 2008..One brain area, which is hypothesized to be critically involved in modulating this feeling (also called presence) is the dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC), an area also associated with the control of impulsive behavior...
