Perceiving facial affective ambiguity: A behavioral and neural comparison of adolescents and adults.
The current study examined perceptual differences between adults and youth in perceiving ambiguous facial expressions. We estimated individuals' internal representation for facial expressions and compared it between age ...
Encoding of goal-relevant stimuli is strengthened by emotional arousal in memory
Emotional information receives preferential processing, which facilitates adaptive strategies for survival. However, the presence of emotional stimuli and the arousal they induce also influence how surrounding non-emotional ...
Individual Differences in Anticipatory Somatosensory Cortex Activity for Shock is Positively Related with Trait Anxiety and Multisensory Integration
Anxiety is associated with an exaggerated expectancy of harm, including overestimation of how likely a conditioned stimulus (CS+) predicts a harmful unconditioned stimulus (US). In the current study we tested whether ...
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 ...
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 ...
