Examples of neutral and fearful expressions used in the passive-viewing task. B, Percent change in normalized magnetic resonance signal intensity in the right amygdala for the comparison between fearful and neutral faces for anxious and healthy children. Bars reflect the SEM.

One of the neural structures more often implicated in the processing of emotional signals in the absence of visual awareness is the amygdala.

Amygdala Response to Fearful Faces in Anxious and Depressed Children

There is ample evidence to show that many types of visual information, including emotional information, could be processed in the absence of visual awareness. For example, it has been shown that masked subliminal facial expressions can induce priming and adaptation effects. However, stimulus made invisible in different ways could be processed to different extent and have differential effects. In this study, we adopted a flanker type behavioral method to investigate whether a flanker rendered invisible through Continuous Flash Suppression CFS could induce a congruency effect on the discrimination of a visible target. Specifically, during the experiment, participants judged the expression either happy or fearful of a visible face in the presence of a nearby invisible face with happy or fearful expression. Results show that participants were slower and less accurate in discriminating the expression of the visible face when the expression of the invisible flanker face was incongruent. Thus, facial expression information rendered invisible with CFS and presented a different spatial location could enhance or interfere with consciously processed facial expression information.

Amygdala Response to Emotional Stimuli without Awareness: Facts and Interpretations

We investigated both types of threat analysis by recording brain potentials in response to threat and neutral words. Personality testing was used to identify participants who were either high or low in trait anxiety TA. An observed enhancement of occipital P1 potentials to threat words during an emotional Stroop task was interpreted as a signal of unconscious processing, since it was early, independent of whether word exposure was subliminal or supraliminal, and more prominent the higher the level of TA. Later positive potentials were also enhanced for threat versus neutral words, but the amplitude enhancement increased with higher TA only in the subliminal condition. These results suggest that unconscious analysis of threat is intensified in those prone to anxiety, as is a later stage of threat processing subject to dynamic interactions between automatic and strategic influences.

Human Amygdala in Sensory and Attentional Unawareness: Neural Pathways and Behavioural Outcomes

Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience pp Cite as. The problem of the possible relationships between hemispheric asymmetries and aspects of the psychoanalytic model of mind has been repeatedly raised during the past century. In a rather arbitrary manner, we could even say that this problem has passed through three distinct stages. In the first stage roughly covering the first part of the twentieth century , psychoanalytically oriented authors, although acknowledging that some clinical phenomena could suggest a special link between aspects of psychoanalytical theory and the right hemisphere, substantially rejected the specificity of these relationships. In the second period, influenced by the influential work on split-brain patients of Sperry and co-workers [ 1 ], the interest that the right hemisphere could have for psychoanalysis has been explicitly acknowledged, but this has been made focusing attention more on cognitive than on emotional features and mapping onto the right and left hemispheres, in a rather global manner, two main constructs of the psychoanalytical theory, namely those of primary and secondary process [ 2 , 3 ].

Over the past two decades, evidence has accumulated that the human amygdala exerts some of its functions also when the observer is not aware of the content, or even presence, of the triggering emotional stimulus. Here we review past and recent studies on this subject, examining neuroimaging literature on healthy participants as well as brain-damaged patients, and we comment on their strengths and limits. We propose a theoretical distinction between processes involved in attentional unawareness , wherein the stimulus is potentially accessible to enter visual awareness but fails to do so because attention is diverted, and in sensory unawareness , wherein the stimulus fails to enter awareness because its normal processing in the visual cortex is suppressed. We argue this distinction, along with data sampling amygdala responses with high temporal resolution, helps to appreciate the multiplicity of functional and anatomical mechanisms centered on the amygdala and supporting its role in non-conscious emotion processing. Separate, but interacting, networks relay visual information to the amygdala exploiting different computational properties of subcortical and cortical routes, thereby supporting amygdala functions at different stages of emotion processing.

Unconscious Emotional Memories and the Right Hemisphere


Камера снова показала Танкадо, его руку, упавшую на бездыханную грудь. Кольца на пальце уже не. ГЛАВА 118 - Это может служить доказательством, - решительно заявил Фонтейн.  - Танкадо избавился от кольца. Он хотел, чтобы оно оказалось как можно дальше от него - чтобы мы его никогда не нашли. - Но, директор, - возразила Сьюзан, - это не имеет смысла. Если Танкадо не понял, что стал жертвой убийства, зачем ему было отдавать ключ.

Он хотел было отпустить ее и броситься к лифту Стратмора, но это было бы чистым безумием: все равно он не знает кода. Кроме того, оказавшись на улице без заложницы, он обречен. Даже его безукоризненный лотос беспомощен перед эскадрильей вертолетов Агентства национальной безопасности. Сьюзан - это единственное, что не позволит Стратмору меня уничтожить. - Сьюзан, - сказал он, волоча ее к лестнице, - уходи со. Клянусь, что я тебя пальцем не трону.

Сьюзан отпрянула и попыталась бежать, но призрак схватил ее за руку. - Не двигайся! - приказал. На мгновение ей показалось, что на нее были устремлены горящие глаза Хейла, но прикосновение руки оказалось на удивление мягким.

Позвоните Танкадо. Скажите, что вы согласны на его условия.

Приказ Стратмора. Все, что я могу, - это проверить статистику, посмотреть, чем загружен ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Слава Богу, разрешено хоть. Стратмор требовал запретить всяческий доступ, но Фонтейн настоял на. - В шифровалке нет камер слежения? - удивился Бринкерхофф.
