The neural substrates of person comparison—An fMRI study

Michael Lindner, Tanja Hundhammer, Angela Ciaramidaro, David E.J. Linden, Thomas Mussweiler
2008 NeuroImage  
Person comparison is pervasive in social judgment and human decision making and yet its neural substrate is poorly explored.  ...  We interpret this overlap as indexing the use of perspective taking common to person comparison and theory of mind.  ...  Regardless of its remarkable psychological importance, little is known about the neural substrates of person comparison.  ...

Investigating emotion with music: An fMRI study

Stefan Koelsch, Thomas Fritz, D. Yves v. Cramon, Karsten Müller, Angela D. Friederici
2006 Human Brain Mapping  
The present study used pleasant and unpleasant music to evoke emotion and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine neural correlates of emotion processing.  ...  Activations of Rolandic opercular areas possibly reflect the activation of mirror-function mechanisms during the perception of the pleasant tunes.  ...  Thus, the present study introduces music as a novel tool to generally investigate neural substrates of pleasant and unpleasant human emotion with fMRI, independent of listeners' personal preferences.  ...
