2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
These brief social moments carry profound effects on the infant's social brain and likely have a distinct signature in the maternal brain.  ...  We found four processes by which mother's brain registers social moments.  ...  The order of conditions was counterbalanced across subjects. While in the scanner mothers were asked to watch the movies attentively.  ...

Uri Hasson, Ohad Landesman, Barbara Knappmeyer, Ignacio Vallines, Nava Rubin, David J. Heeger
2008 Projections: The Journal for Movies and Mind  
This article describes a new method for assessing the effect of a given film on viewers' brain activity.  ...  However, this was not the case for all types of motion picture sequences, and the level of control over viewers' brain activity differed as a function of movie content, editing, and directing style.  ...  David Marr Prize in computer vision (1987 Uri Hasson is a research scientist at the Center for Neural Science and Depart  ...

The Brain Never Stops

Sepideh Sadaghiani
2014 Frontiers for Young Minds  
The brain uses a lot of energy, so it appears very dark in the image. This is also true of the heart, which needs a lot of energy to continuously keep beating.  ...  THE BRAIN IS SPONTANEOUSLY ACTIVE Surprisingly, the brain uses about 20% of the body's energy at all times. That's right: about one-fifth of everything you eat is for your brain.  ...  Your brain is doing a lot of work when you are engaged in activities such as sports, playing a game, or watching a movie.  ...

M. B. Schippers, A. Roebroeck, R. Renken, L. Nanetti, C. Keysers
2010 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Results show that a guesser's brain activity in regions involved in mentalizing and mirroring echoes the temporal structure of a gesturer's brain activity.  ...  We then applied a method to localize directed influences between the brains of the participants: between-brain Granger-causality mapping.  ...  The research was supported by a Vidi grant of the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) and a Marie Curie Excellence Grant of the European Commission (to C.K.).  ...

High-amplitude cofluctuations in cortical activity drive functional connectivity

Farnaz Zamani Esfahlani, Youngheun Jo, Joshua Faskowitz, Lisa Byrge, Daniel P. Kennedy, Olaf Sporns, Richard F. Betzel
2020 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Here we decompose resting-state functional connectivity using a temporal unwrapping procedure to assess the contributions of moment-to-moment activity cofluctuations to the overall connectivity pattern  ...  These observations illuminate the relation of brain activity to functional connectivity and open a number of directions for future research.  ...  By omitting the averaging step, we can temporally unwrap the correlation measure, which results in a new set of time series-one for every pair of brain regions (network edges)-whose elements represent  ...

Playing Charades in the fMRI: Are Mirror and/or Mentalizing Areas Involved in Gestural Communication?

Marleen B. Schippers, Valeria Gazzola, Rainer Goebel, Christian Keysers, Georges Chapouthier
2009 PLoS ONE  
Boiled down to its mere essentials, communication entails transferring a mental content from one brain to another.  ...  This suggests that gestural communication relies on a combination of simulation and, during decoding, mentalizing/agency attribution brain areas.  ...  The gestures were recorded from the control room of the MR-scanner with a video camera (Sony DSR-PDX10P).  ...

The anthropomorphic brain: The mirror neuron system responds to human and robotic actions

V. Gazzola, G. Rizzolatti, B. Wicker, C. Keysers
2007 NeuroImage  
We localised the motor areas involved in the execution of hand actions, presented the same subjects blocks of movies of humans or robots perform a variety of actions.  ...  Finally we observed that seeing a robot perform a single action repeatedly within a block failed to activate the mirror system.  ...  We are particularly grateful to Anita Kuipers for help with scanning, all members of the social brain lab for providing helpful comments and all our subjects for their willingness to participate over a  ...

Temporal fluctuations in the brain's modular architecture during movie-watching [article]

Richard F Betzel, Lisa Byrge, Farnaz Zamani Esfahlani, Daniel P Kennedy
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
Finally, we show that synchronous fluctuations in network architecture over time can be linked to a subset of features in the movie.  ...  We then used a data-driven approach to uncover clusters of functional connections that follow similar trajectories over time and are more strongly correlated during movie-watching than at rest.  ...  This observation has been made before, with many studies findings that the level of segregation in brain networks changes over from moment to moment [22, 23, 62] .  ...
