Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Recent research on moral decision-making has suggested that many common moral judgments are based on immediate intuitions. However, some individuals arrive at highly counterintuitive utilitarian conclusions about when it is permissible to harm other individuals. Such utilitarian judgments have been attributed to effortful reasoning that has overcome our natural emotional aversion to harming others. Recent studies, however, suggest that such utilitarian judgments might also result from a decreased aversion to harming others, due to a deficit in empathic concern and social emotion. The present study investigated the neural basis of such indifference to harming using functional neuroimaging during engagement in moral dilemmas. A tendency to counterintuitive utilitarian judgment was associated both with 'psychoticism', a trait associated with a lack of empathic concern and antisocial tendencies, and with 'need for cognition', a trait reflecting preference for effortful cognition. Importantly, only psychoticism was also negatively correlated with activation in the subgenual cingulate cortex (SCC), a brain area implicated in empathic concern and social emotions such as guilt, during counterintuitive utilitarian judgments. Our findings suggest that when individuals reach highly counterintuitive utilitarian conclusions, this need not reflect greater engagement in explicit moral deliberation. It may rather reflect a lack of empathic concern, and diminished aversion to harming others.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objectives: Efficient navigation of our social world depends on the generation, interpretation and
combination of social signals within different sensory systems. However, the influence of adult
aging on cross-modal integration of emotional stimuli remains poorly understood. Therefore, the
aim of this work is to understand the integration of visual and auditory cues in social situations.
Methods: A series of multisensory integration experiments were designed to compare the ability
of younger and older adults to identify whether emotional faces and voices were presented
congruently or not. In an additional eye tracking experiment, younger and older adults were
compared in terms of their gaze behavior when identifying emotions through multiple sensory
modalities e.g. face and voice versus unisensory modalities e.g. face or voice.
Results: The results suggest that older adults are significantly less accurate at correctly identifying
emotions from one modality (faces or voices alone) but perform as well as younger adults on tasks
where congruent auditory and visual emotional information are presented concurrently. In
contrast, older adults are poorer than younger adults at detecting incongruency from different
sensory modalities. Furthermore, older adults who looked for a shorter time at the eye and mouth
regions are better at detecting cross-modal congruence than older adults who looked for longer. In
contrast, younger adults who looked longer at the whole face i.e. the eyes, mouth and the
periphery of the face perform best in congruence detection.
Conclusions and Discussion: Across the studies we found clear evidence that older adults had
difficulty in identifying emotions from faces and voices. However, these age differences in emotion
perception disappear when congruent multimodal information was available. Therefore, older
adults appear to benefit from congruent multisensory information. Moreover, the results suggest
that the age differences in the processing of relevant and irrelevant visual and auditory social
information might be related to changes in gaze behaviour.

Title:
Visual areas PPA and pSTS diverge from other processing modules during perceptual closure: functional dichotomies within category selective networks
Publication year: 2014

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The nature of neural processing within category-preferring visual networks remains an open topic in human neuroscience. Although the topography of face, scene, and object-preferring modules in the human brain is well established, the functional characterization, in terms of dynamic selectivity across their nodes is still elusive.
Here, we use long trials of perceptually impoverished images of faces and objects to assess the dynamics of BOLD activity and selectivity induced by perceptual closure within these regions of interest. Departing from paradigms involving immediate percepts, we used ambiguous images favoring holistic search and independence from low level stimulus properties.
By assessing the neural responses to images that go beyond the preferred category of the studied ROIs we could dissect the specificity of these processes as a function of the timing of perceptual closure and contribute to the debate regarding specialization of these modules.
We found that pSTS is a notable exception to the observation that category selective high-level visual areas also participate on the perceptual closure of their non-preferred category. A similar observation was found for PPA responses to faces. Most importantly, these observations directly link the pSTS region with the social processing network, which cannot be engaged by object stimuli.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Classification of neural signals at the single-trial level and the study of their relevance in affective and cognitive neuroscience are still in their infancy. Here we investigated the neurophysiological correlates of conditions of increasing social scene complexity using 3D human models as targets of attention, which may also be important in autism research. Challenging single-trial statistical classification of EEG neural signals was attempted for detection of oddball stimuli with increasing social scene complexity. Stimuli had an oddball structure and were as follows: 1) flashed schematic eyes, 2) simple 3D faces flashed between averted and non-averted gaze (only eye position changing), 3) simple 3D faces flashed between averted and non-averted gaze (head and eye position changing), 4) animated avatar alternated its gaze direction to the left and to the right (head and eye position), 5) environment with 4 animated avatars all of which change gaze and one of which is the target of attention. We found a late (> 300 ms) neurophysiological oddball correlate for all conditions irrespective of their complexity as assessed by repeated measures ANOVA. We attempted single-trial detection of this signal with automatic classifiers and obtained a significant balanced accuracy classification of around 79%, which is noteworthy given the amount of scene complexity. Lateralization analysis showed a specific right lateralization only for more complex realistic social scenes. In sum, complex ecological animations with social content elicit neurophysiological events which can be characterized even at the single-trial level. These signals are right lateralized. These finding paves the way for neuroscientific studies in affective neuroscience based on complex social scenes, and given the detectability at the single trial level this suggests the feasibility of brain computer interfaces that can be applied to social cognition disorders such as autism.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES
This project had 3 main goals: 1. To study selectivity dynamics of mapped category-preferring visual networks, in particular the Superior Temporal Sulcus (STS) before, during and after perceptual closure (perceptual “Eureka” under ambiguous conditions). 2. To identify the neural correlates of face perception when facial /head signals are used as social attention cues to other objects or human-like agents. 3. To study reward and decision making processes in the highly naturalistic setting of a social interaction (a trust game).
METHOD
We used mooney stimuli in which the observer suddenly becomes aware of the emergence of a holistic face percept for EEG and EEG/fMRI experiments. We also investigated if stimuli of increasing hierarchical social complexity, generate identifiable neurophysiological correlates of 3D human faces and agents as targets for focus of social attention. We attempted single trial classification of P300-like markers of detection of “social” events. Finally, we used fMRI to study how face and social cognition network are modulated by face- to-face interaction and how they are modulated by eye contact the payoff values of the interaction.
RESULTS
Using EEG and fMRI, we found that distinct gamma frequency sub-bands reflect different neural substrates and cognitive mechanisms when comparing object perception states vs. no categorical perception. We found a neural correlate of complex social signals and single-trial detection of this signal reached a balanced accuracy of 79%. We found a specific right lateralization only for more complex social scenes. We also found evidence for interaction of social variables such as behavioural trust and neural responses in the face and social cognition networks.
CONCLUSIONS
We found evidence for functional parcellation of general and specific perceptual and affective decision making circuits in relation to face perception and social cognition.

Mirror-touch synaesthesia: Difficulties inhibiting the other

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Individuals with mirror touch synaesthesia (MTS) experience touch on their own body when observing others being touched. A recent account proposes that such rare experiences could be linked to impairment in self-other representations. Here we tested participants with MTS on a battery of social cognition tests and found that compared to non-synaesthete controls, the MTS group showed impairment in imitation-inhibition but not in visual perspective taking or theory of mind. Although all of these socio-cognitive abilities rely on the control of self-other representations, they differ as to whether the self, or the other, should be preferentially represented. For imitation-inhibition, representations of the other should be inhibited and self-representations should be enhanced, whereas the opposite is true for visual perspective taking and theory of mind. These findings suggest that MTS is associated with a specific deficit in inhibiting representation of other individuals and shed light on the fractionability of processes underlying typical social cognition.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Interoception, the sensitivity to visceral sensations, is thought to be the fundamental basis for subjective feeling states, shaping our experiences of the world around us. Despite much speculation regarding the developmental origins of interoception, research in developmental samples has been restricted to older childhood due to significant methodological limitations. Therefore, the developmental trajectory of interoception, and the role it plays in emerging social, emotional and cognitive skills, remains unknown. Here, we present the first ever study of interoception in pre-verbal infants. We develop a novel behavioural measure of interoceptive sensitivity, and demonstrate that 5-month old infants do indeed have an implicit awareness of visceral sensations that can guide preferences in the environment. We also report the presence of a neural marker of interoceptive processing, the heartbeat evoked potential (HEP), which correlates with our behavioural measure and also shows state fluctuations according to emotional processing demands as it does in adults. This demonstrates that even at this early age, infants’ experiences of emotions appear to be closely influenced by their visceral reactions. Finally, we show that the extent to which infants’ HEPs are differentially amplified by negative emotions is associated with the negative emotional aspect of their temperament. Infants with a more negative temperament may be more influenced by their physiological responses during observation of negative emotions. These results have important implications for the development of social cognition and self-regulation, and consequently may play a determining role in infants’ later attachment, personality traits and cognitive abilities.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Social cognition comprises emotional recognition, theory of mind (ToM), moral judgment, and decision-making. Age-related changes on neurophysiological correlates of social cognition are scarcely studied.
AIM
To analyze age changes in behavioral and neurophysiological correlates of social cognition.
METHOD
30 younger (YA; Mage=26.6, SD=4.05), 30 middle-aged (MA; M=48.4, SD=5.50) and 29 older adults (OA; M=64.5, SD=4.10) performed experimental tasks targeting each social cognition component, during an EEG.
RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS
Emotional recognition - OA had higher N170, despite similar behavioral performances in all groups. ToM - YA and MA outperformed OA. YA and MA showed higher late positive potentials (LPP) in congruent than incongruent conditions, while OA had similar amplitudes in both. This may affect OA’s ability to use others’ facial expressions to understand their inner states. Moral judgement - OA were less accurate than YA, which was consistent with the N2 attenuation during the perception of accidental/intentional harm. Social economic decision-making (Ultimatum Game) - OA accepted more unfair offers than YA and MA. As the Medial Frontal Negativity amplitude did not differ between groups, decisions may be explained by different economic/social preferences, rather than unfairness sensitivity. Decision-making under risk - OA were less risk-averse than YA. YA had higher Feedback Related Negativity for favorable than unfavorable outcomes, while MA and OA had similar amplitudes in both. Similarly, the P3 amplitude of OA did not differ between gains and non-gains. This suggests that aging is accompanied by a decline in the ability to adjust economic decisions according to feedback.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Interoception, the sensitivity to visceral sensations, plays an important role in homeostasis and guiding motivated behaviour. It is also considered to be fundamental to self-awareness. Despite its importance, the developmental origins of interoceptive sensitivity remain unexplored. We here provide the first evidence for implicit, flexible interoceptive sensitivity in 5-month old infants using a novel behavioural measure, coupled with an established cortical index of interoceptive processing. These findings have important implications for the understanding of the early developmental stages of self-awareness, self-regulation and socio-emotional abilities.

Contents: ABSTRACT:
Is the self already relational in its very bodily foundations? The question of whether our mental life is initially and primarily shaped by embodied dimensions of the individual or by interpersonal relations is debated in many fields, including psychology, philosophy, psychoanalysis, and more recently, cognitive neuroscience. In this interdisciplinary target article, we put forward the radical claim that even some of the most minimal aspects of selfhood, namely the feeling qualities associated with being an embodied subject, are fundamentally shaped by embodied interactions with other people in early infancy and beyond. Such embodied interactions allow the developing organism to mentalize its homeostatic regulation. In other words, embodied interactions contribute directly to the building of mental models of the infant’s physiological states, given the need to maintain such states within a given dynamic range despite internal or external perturbations. Specifically, our position rests on the following three propositions: (1) the progressive integration and organization of sensory and motor signals constitutes the foundations of the minimal self, a process which we have linked to contemporary, computational models of brain function and named “embodied mentalization”; (2) interactions with other people are motivated and constrained by the same principles that govern the “mentalization” of sensorimotor signals in the individual – and hence the mentalization of one’s body can include signals from other bodies in physical proximity and interaction, especially in interaction with particular bodies. (3) Crucially, given the dependency of humans in early infancy, there is a “homeostatically necessary” plethora of such embodied “proximal” interactions, especially as regards interoception. Collectively, such experiences of proximal intercorporeality “sculpt” the mentalization process and hence the constitution of the minimal self, including the progressive sophistication of mental distinctions between “subject-object,” “self-other” and even “pleasure-pain.” Finally, we explore notions of cardiac and more broadly interoceptive awareness as later, cognitive acquisitions that allow us to progressively solidify such distinctions, as well as understand and empathise with other people.

How do hypothalamic nonapeptides shape youth’s sociality? A systematic review on oxytocin, vasopressin and human socio-emotional development
Publication year: 2018

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The hypothalamic nonapeptides oxytocin and vasopressin are important modulators of socio-affective behaviours in a wide variety of animal species, including humans. Nevertheless, there is little research addressing their possible roles on socio-affective dimensions of human behaviour across development, during which considerable behavioural and physiological change occurs. Questions still remain about the extent to which findings from adults may directly apply to earlier phases of human development. In this article, we systematically summarize and discuss all existing studies investigating the developmental association of endogenous levels of hypothalamic neuropeptides oxytocin and vasopressin with human social behaviour or on its disruption in paediatric populations. Evidence is sparse insofar as there are still relatively few developmental studies and limited due to correlational research designs and unreliability of methods currently used for neuropeptide measurements in biological fluids. The findings to date generally converge with adult evidence, but also suggest that important differences between age stages may exist. Further studies focusing these differences may prove critical for informing drug development for socio-affective deficits in paediatric populations.

Action perception recruits the cerebellum and is impaired in patients with spinocerebellar ataxia
Publication year: 2019

https://academic.oup.com/brain/article/142/12/3791/5628037
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Our cerebellum has been proposed to generate prediction signals that may help us plan and execute our motor programmes. However, to what extent our cerebellum is also actively involved in perceiving the action of others remains to be elucidated. Using functional MRI, we show here that observing goal-directed hand actions of others bilaterally recruits lobules VI, VIIb and VIIIa in the cerebellar hemispheres. Moreover, whereas healthy subjects (n = 31) were found to be able to discriminate subtle differences in the kinematics of observed limb movements of others, patients suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia type 6 (SCA6; n = 21) were severely impaired in performing such tasks. Our data suggest that the human cerebellum is actively involved in perceiving the kinematics of the hand actions of others and that SCA6 patients' deficits include a difficulty in perceiving the actions of other individuals. This finding alerts us to the fact that cerebellar disorders can alter social cognition.
