How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
This data release of 117 healthy community-dwelling adults provides multimodal high-quality neuroimaging and behavioral data for the investigation of brain-behavior relationships. We provide structural MRI, resting-state functional MRI, movie functional MRI, together with questionnaire-based and task-based psychological variables; many of the parti...

Decision making under uncertainty in multiagent settings is of increasing interest in decision science. The degree to which human agents depart from computationally optimal solutions in socially interactive settings is generally unknown. Such understanding provides insight into how social contexts affect human interaction and the underlying contrib...
Article
Are social brain responses domain specific, or do domain-general but socially prevalent cognitive processes drive activity in this network? In this issue of Neuron, Konovalov et al. (2021) address this by dissociating general sociality from reactivity, one defining feature of social interactions.
Preprint
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive societal upheaval around the world. In the US, with 20% of global COVID-19 cases, the pandemic has also triggered a substantial economic shock and laid bare societal inequities. The extreme and highly volatile nature of this time period affords a unique opportunity to elucidate the dynamics of psychosocial p...

The COVID-19 pandemic is a catastrophe that has caused societal upheaval globally. In the US, 2 it triggered an economic shock and laid bare societal inequities. However, it also afforded a unique 3 opportunity to elucidate the dynamics of psychosocial processes during extreme and volatile 4 conditions. From April 2020 through January 2021, we cond...
Preprint
Decision making under uncertainty and under incomplete evidence in multiagent settings is of increasing interest in decision science, assistive robotics, and machine assisted cognition. The degree to which human agents depart from computationally optimal solutions in socially interactive settings is generally unknown. Yet, this knowledge is critica...
Article
Full-text available
Rationale: Whereas the effect of the sex steroid 17-beta-estradiol (E2) on dopaminergic (DA) transmission in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) is well evidenced in female rats, studies in humans are inconsistent. Moreover, linear and inverted u-shaped dose response curves have been observed for E2's effects on hippocampal plasticity, but the shape of do...
Preprint
The ability to from a Theory of Mind (ToM) that is to theorize about others mental states and explain and predict behavior in relation to attributed intentional states, constitutes a hallmark of human cognition. These abilities are multi-faceted and include a variety of different cognitive sub-functions. Here, we focus on decision processes in soci...
Article
Full-text available
The predictive coding account of psychosis postulates the abnormal formation of prior beliefs in schizophrenia, resulting in psychotic symptoms. One domain in which priors play a crucial role is visual perception. For instance, our perception of brightness, line length, and motion direction are not merely based on a veridical extraction of sensory...
Article
In an elegant model-based fMRI study, Leong et al. (2017) demonstrate how attention and learning interact to facilitate value-based decision-making. They combine computational modeling with empirical measures of attentional selection derived from eye-tracking data and multivariate pattern analyses.
Article
Full-text available
In research on visual working memory (WM), a contentiously debated issue concerns whether or not items are stored independently of one another in WM. Here we addressed this issue by exploring the role of the physical context that surrounds a given item in the memory display in the formation of WM representations. In particular, we employed bilatera...
Article
Full-text available
Oscillations are an important aspect of neuronal activity. Interestingly, oscillatory patterns are also observed in behaviour, such as in visual performance measures after the presentation of a brief sensory event in the visual or another modality. These oscillations in visual performance cycle at the typical frequencies of brain rhythms, suggestin...
Article
Full-text available
In classic visual pop-out search, response times are slowed remarkably when participants are required to precisely identify (e.g., vertical vs. horizontal orientation) as compared to simply localize (e.g., left vs. right position) a feature singleton target. This cost associated with stimulus identification has been recently proposed (Töllner, Rang...
