Frontal lobe regulation of blood glucose levels: support for the limited capacity model in hostile violence-prone men.
Hostile men have reliably displayed an exaggerated sympathetic stress response across multiple experimental settings, with cardiovascular reactivity for blood pressure and heart rate concurrent with lateralized right frontal ...
The Role of Perspective-Taking on Ability to Recognize Fear
Impairment in the ability to detect certain emotions, such as fear, is linked to multiple disorders and follows a pattern of interindividual variability and intra-individual stability over time. Deficits in fear recognition ...
Quantitative electroencephalographic and neuropsychological investigation of an alternative measure of frontal lobe executive functions: the Figure Trail Making Test.
The most frequently used measures of executive functioning are either sensitive to left frontal lobe functioning or bilateral frontal functioning. Relatively little is known about right frontal lobe contributions to executive ...
Behavioral and neural concordance in parent-child dyadic sleep patterns
Sleep habits developed in adolescence shape long-term trajectories of psychological, educational, and physiological well-being. Adolescents’ sleep behaviors are shaped by their parents’ sleep at both the behavioral and ...
Evidence for arousal-biased competition in perceptual learning
Arousal-biased competition theory predicts that arousal biases competition in favor of perceptually salient stimuli and against non-salient stimuli (Mather and Sutherland, 2011). The current study tested this hypothesis ...
Love flows downstream: mothers’ and children’s neural representation similarity in perceiving distress of self and family
(Oxford University Press, 2017)
The current study aimed to capture empathy processing in an interpersonal context. Mother–adolescent dyads (N¼22) each completed an empathy task during fMRI, in which they imagined the target person in distressing scenes ...
Brain reorganization as a function of walking experience in 12-month-old infants: implications for the development of manual laterality
Hand preference in infancy is marked by many developmental shifts in hand use and arm coupling as infants reach for and manipulate objects. Research has linked these early shifts in hand use to the emergence of fundamental ...
