Left amygdala and putamen activation modulate emotion driven decisions in the iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma game (2019)
Journal Article
Eimontaite, I., Schindler, I., De Marco, M., Duzzi, D., Venneri, A., & Goel, V. (2019). Left amygdala and putamen activation modulate emotion driven decisions in the iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma game. Frontiers in Neuroscience, 13, https://doi.org/10.3389/fnins.2019.00741

Although economic decision-making is commonly characterized as a purely rational phenomenon, it is clear that real-world decision-making is influenced by emotions. Yet, relatively little is known about the neural correlates of this process. To explor...

Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity (2018)
Journal Article
Jones, O., Jones, O., Schindler, I., Schindler, I., Holle, H., & Holle, H. (in press). Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity. Experimental Dermatology, https://doi.org/10.1111/exd.13803

Itch, a complex unpleasant sensation causing the desire to scratch, results from the activity of a network of brain regions. However, the specific functional contributions of individual regions within this network remains poorly understood. We invest...

Differential roles of polar orbital prefrontal cortex and parietal lobes in logical reasoning with neutral and negative emotional content (2018)
Journal Article
Eimontaite, I., Goel, V., Raymont, V., Krueger, F., Schindler, I., & Grafman, J. (2018). Differential roles of polar orbital prefrontal cortex and parietal lobes in logical reasoning with neutral and negative emotional content. Neuropsychologia, 119, 320-329. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2018.05.014

To answer the question of how brain pathology affects reasoning about negative emotional content, we administered a disjunctive logical reasoning task involving arguments with neutral content (e.g. Either there are tigers or women in NYC, but not bot...

Subliminal galvanic-vestibular stimulation influences ego- and object-centred components of visual neglect (2014)
Journal Article
Oppenländer, K., Keller, I., Karbach, J., Schindler, I., Kerkhoff, G., & Reinhart, S. (2015). Subliminal galvanic-vestibular stimulation influences ego- and object-centred components of visual neglect. Neuropsychologia, 74, 170-177 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2014.10.039

Neglect patients show contralesional deficits in egocentric and object-centred visuospatial tasks. The extent to which these different phenomena are modulated by sensory stimulation remains to be clarified. Subliminal galvanic vestibular stimulation...
