Older adults’ neural activation in the reward circuit is sensitive to face trustworthiness

Published in: Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 21-34 Abstract “We examined older adult (OA) and younger adult (YA) neural sensitivity to face trustworthiness in reward circuit regions, previously found to respond to trustworthiness in YA. Interactions of face trustworthiness with age revealed effects exclusive to OA in the amygdala and caudate, and an effect that was not moderated by age in the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC). OA, but not YA, showed a nonlinear amygdala response to face trustworthiness, with significantly stronger activation response to high than to medium trustworthy faces, and no difference between low and… Read More
