The effects of motivational reward on the pathological attentional blink following right hemisphere stroke
Recent work has shown that attentional deficits following stroke can be modulated by motivational stimulation, particularly anticipated monetary reward. Here we examined the effects of anticipated reward on the pathological ...
Increased opioid dependence in a mouse model of panic disorder
(Frontiers Research Fundation, 2010-02-22)
[EN] Panic disorder is a highly prevalent neuropsychiatric disorder that shows co-occurrence with substance abuse. Here, we demonstrate that TrkC, the high-affinity receptor for neurotrophin-3, is a key molecule involved ...
Foreign-accented speech modulates linguistic anticipatory processes
Listeners are able to anticipate upcoming words during sentence comprehension, and, as a result, they also pre-activate semantically related words. In the present study, we aim at exploring whether these anticipatory ...
Enactivism is not interactionism

Modeling habits as self-sustaining patterns of sensorimotor behavior
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-08-08)
In the recent history of psychology and cognitive neuroscience, the notion of habit has been reduced to a stimulus-triggered response probability correlation. In this paper we use a computational model to present an ...
A genealogical map of the concept of habit
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-21)
The notion of information processing has dominated the study of the mind for over six decades. However, before the advent of cognitivism, one of the most prominent theoretical ideas was that of Habit. This is a concept ...
Prosocial behavior and gender
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-04-14)
This study revisits different experimental data sets that explore social behavior in economic games and uncovers that many treatment effects may be gender-specific. In general, men and women do not differ in "neutral" ...
The interactive brain hypothesis
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-06)
Enactive approaches foreground the role of interpersonal interaction in explanations of social understanding. This motivates, in combination with a recent interest in neuroscientific studies involving actual interactions, ...
Learning to perceive in the sensor motor approach: Piaget's theory of equilibration interpreted dynamically
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-30)
Learning to perceive is faced with a classical paradox: if understanding is required for perception, how can we learn to perceive something new, something we do not yet understand? According to the sensorimotor approach, ...
The role of acetaldehyde in the increased acceptance of ethanol after prenatal ethanol exposure
(Merce Correa, Jaume I University, Spain, 2017-01-31)
Recent studies show that acetaldehyde, the first metabolite in the oxidation of ethanol, can be responsible for both, the appetitive and the aversive effects produced by ethanol intoxication. More specifically, it has been ...
