Examining self-belief formation through artificial beliefs

Abstract Psychological research has addressed key questions about self-beliefs, such as when they are formed, how they are shaped, or what functions they might have. The fundamental question of how we arrive at these self-beliefs in the first place has mostly been neglected, and there is currently no mechanistic description of the underlying processes. While […]

Neurocomputational mechanisms underlying maladaptive self-belief formation in depression

Abstract A core symptom of major depression is maladaptive self-beliefs. These are perpetuated by negatively biased feedback processing. Understanding the neurocomputational mechanisms of biased belief updating may help to counteract maladaptive beliefs. The present study uses functional neuroimaging to examine neural activity associated with prediction error-based learning in depression and healthy controls. We hypothesized that

Two months lab visit by Jessica Royer

The SNL welcomes Jessica Royer from McGill University (Montreal, Canada) for a two months lab visit. Jessica is a clinical neuropsychologist focusing on socio-affective networks in persons with epilepsy. She uses multimodal MRI and electrophysiology, specifically high-density scalp EEG and intracranial recordings. Her work at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) is co-supervised by Dr. Birgit Frauscher

Altered physiological, affective, and functional connectivity responses to acute stress in patients with alcohol use disorder

Abstract Background There is evidence that the processing of acute stress is altered in alcohol use disorder (AUD), but little is known about how this is manifested simultaneously across different stress parameters and which neural processes are involved. The present study examined physiological and affective responses to stress and functional connectivity in AUD. Methods Salivary

The Human Affectome

Abstract Over the last decades, the interdisciplinary field of the affective sciences has seen proliferation rather than integration of theoretical perspectives. This is due to differences in metaphysical and mechanistic assumptions about human affective phenomena (what they are and how they work) which, shaped by academic motivations and values, have determined the affective constructs and
