Mentalizing is the key socio-cognitive ability. Its heterogeneous structure may result from a variety of forms of mental state inference, which may be based on lower-level processing of cues encoded in the observable behavior of others, or rather involve higher-level computations aimed at understanding another person's perspective. Here we aimed to...

Background and aims Despite the inclusion of the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (CSBD) in the International Classification of Diseases, very little is known about the underlying affective and cognitive processes. To fill this gap, we compared CSBD subjects and Healthy-Controls (HC) across negative/positive valence, cognitive and sensorimotor s...

Background and aims Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (CSBD) is characterized by increased reactivity to erotic reward cues. Cue-encoded reward parameters, such as type (e.g. erotic or monetary) or probability of anticipated reward, shape reward-related motivational processes, increase the attractiveness of cues and therefore might enhance malada...

Theory of mind (ToM) is crucial for social interactions. Previous research has indicated that deaf and hard-of-hearing children born into hearing families (DoH) are at risk of delayed ToM development. However, it is unclear whether this is the case for DoH children who receive cochlear implants (CIs) before and around the second year of life. The p...

The theory of mind (ToM) is the ability to attribute mental states to others and is extremely important for social functioning. It has been widely examined in both behavioral and neuroimaging research, usually with the use of the many versions of the false-belief (FB) task. However, there is still not enough evidence from studies on the neurodevelo...

Near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a research method which enables to measure functional activity of the brain. Younger children, newborns and the people who cannot participate in the research using other neuroimaging techniques due to contraindications can be examined with fNIRS. This method is therefore widely applied in the studies of neurode...
Thesis
Full-text available
Za źródło objawów Kompulsywnych Zachowań Seksualnych (CSB) uznaje się zakłócenie przebiegu procesu przetwarzania nagród, u którego podstaw leży aktywność dopaminergicznych struktur mózgowego Układu Nagrody. Pacjentów cechuje nadmierna wrażliwość na wskazówki, zapowiadające możliwość wystąpienia nagrody i informujące o jej właściwościach. Spostrzeże...

Project
Given the clinical significance of understanding female ASD presentation, the research project is aimed at filling an important knowledge gap on the relationship between behavioral-cognitive phenotypes and neural characteristics of autism.
Project
In the recent years there was an increase in the number of people suffering from the loss of control over sexual behavior (time spent on pornography, masturbation or use of paid sexual services). There is ongoing discussion among therapists and researchers, about how to conceptualize such compulsive sexual behaviors (CSB) and perform efficient psychotherapeutic intervention. The aim of the project is to: 1) identify the key neural mechanisms underlying CSB, and 2.) verify the causal role of identified neural mechanisms for CSB symptoms.
