Findings of amygdala responsiveness to the eye region of fearful faces raise the question of whether eye widening is the only facial cue involved. We used fMRI to investigate the differential amygdala response to fearful versus neutral stimuli for fa... Read More about An amygdala response to fearful faces with covered eyes.

Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling (2008)
Journal Article
MacPherson, H., Green, G., Nevado, A., Lythgoe, M. F., Lewith, G., Devlin, R., …Asghar, A. U. R. (2008). Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling. Neuroscience letters, 434(1), (144-149). doi:10.1016/j.neulet.2008.01.058. ISSN 0304-3940

The difference between superficial and deep needling at acupuncture points has yet to be mapped with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Using a 3 T MRI, echo planar imaging data were acquired for 17 right-handed healthy volunteer participa... Read More about Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling.
