Questions related to Social Neuroscience
I need to know if I can compare statistically the fluctuation on one variable of only one subject to the fluctuation of the same variable of the rest of the group; is it possible? Statistically can I compare subject to group?
Here I'm talking in terms of conductance and heart rate.
If anyone could help me, it would be great.
Gotta say, I'm using SPSS and I'm not very familiar with statistics
I have written a theory based of the Strauss-Howe generational theory that involves the social hormones (oxytocin and vasopressin) and how they modulate the in-group vs. out-group dynamics in societies, and how this in turn is currently creating the rising populist nationalism.
The theory is easily accessible to everybody, even if you're not that familiar with oxytocin and vasopressin. The premise of the theory is that human populations have a similar generational hormone cycle than what the cyclical animal populations do, but the cycle is 80-years in length: https://jannemiettinen.fi/FourthTurning/ (the text is also attached as a PDF-file).
At the moment, these three questions are the biggest ones remaining that would further validate the theory: 1) if historical vasopressin proxy statistics are found, 2) if generational variances to the neuronal efficiency in the human hypothalamus are observed (neuroimaging), or 3) if the mechanism regulating the generational hypothalamic variances is found (presumably related the SCN).
Hi all, unfortunately I haven't been able to find a review paper about this topic. Is there anyone who happen to know about a paper that describes ERP components that can be modulated by unconsciously processed stimuli (e.g. stimuli suppressed from awareness in binocular rivalry paradigms)? I'm particularly interested in unconscious processing of emotion. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks.
Based on the columnar Dimensional Systems model and the applied Clinical Biopsychological Model, I have proposed Type-G and Type-T patterns. Please feel free to comment both pro and con on the attached article.
I tried to find but I haven't found any article discussing this issue. I've noticed that in most online psychological surveys, the response rate is greater for women (in my own research, the sample was about 65% of women).
I'm looking for something that talks about this issue to cite in my own discussion. Unfortunately, I've found nothing about this.
The topic of my study is Emotional communication. Categorical measures of emotional somatic and facial expression will be assessed with the STAI serving as the outcome variable in the AVONA.
In my research about shame, I made up some scenarios designed to induce the participants’ shame emtion in experiment. When participants read these scenarios, participants would experience the shame. But, how to get the validity of scenarios? How to assese these scenarios?
We are looking for papers about the relation between cognitive flexibility and the hayling task (beyond the relationship between behavioral inhibition and the hayling task). Can anybody help?
I am doing a research about development of theory of mind, and I would like use ERP, I need to know the components associated to theory of minf and the paradigm used in this kind of studies.
The task is for a project that will study associations between executive functions and emotion regulation in older, midlife, and younger adults.
Neuroscience has been applied or employed to provide insight in many areas of research and human activity. Does anybody know of any work that falls under the title of environmental or conservation neuroscience? By this I mean research that could directly be used to assist our understanding of environmental protection or play an applied role in conservation activities.
My bipolar sample has undertaken the CANTAB assessment over 8-year follow-up. Since I do not have a control group, I consider to use Z-scores to compare the raw scores with their norm group according to age and gender.
Based on previous literature on neurocognition, I have not found consistent evidence regarding cut-off levels for Z-scores. Which Z-scores should be considered for cognitive deficits (Z<-1.0, -1.5, or -2.0)?
Although it gives quite clear description on the mechanism of empathy,
I didn't ever see the visualization directly deals with the model.
Has anyone visualized the Perception-action model of empathy (Preston & de Waal, 2002, Preston, 2007) in flow-chart-like diagram as a 'process'?
I want to analyze the three basic motives achievement, power and affiliation with children between six and ten years with the Childrens Apperception Test (CAT). Is there a manual for scoring these motives in children? Or is it a suitable to use Winters manual? Has anyone ever used Winters manual for the CAT and what are the experiences?
I am looking for a large number of images of cigarettes, illicit drugs, alcohol, and gambling for an upcoming study.
Specifically, images of the target items themselves (e.g. an image of burning cigarette or an image of a mug of beer).
Preferably, stimulus sets will have been used in prior research.
What are the neuropsychological perspectives on the theory of exploring risk aversion in social behaviour?
I've been thinking for some time about the neural correlates for social priming. One social priming task, for example, is the sentence unscrambling task of Srull & Wyer (1979) sentence unscrambling task that has been used in numerous studies. There are various versions for this sentence unscrambling task and one in particular is with the use of the subject vs. object pronouns "I" vs. "me".
I'm interested to know the following:
1) Is there any research on the neural correlates of social priming in general that you would recommend reading?
2) Is there any research on the neural representation of subject vs. object pronouns "I" vs. "me" that you would recommend reading?
Thank you in advance for your help!

There is some evidence, but what about people changing political affiliations during their life? Any longitudinal studies?
I've been trying to a neurological basis for the development of religious beliefs. So far, I've found none that stands out. I'll be glad if someone can point out any interesting research on this particular subject.
