Seeing Other Minds in 3D

Published in: Trends in Cognitive Sciences, Volume 22, Issue 3, 193-195 Abstract “To be kind or compassionate, or cruel or condescending, a social agent must understand what others are likely to want, feel, and choose. In this issue Tamir and Thornton [1] offer a powerful and parsimonious account of human social knowledge (how we represent the internal states of one another) and social prediction (how we anticipate dynamics in those internal states).” Written by: Rebecca Saxe For Full Text: http://www.cell.com/trends/cognitive-sciences/fulltext/S1364-6613(18)30014-7

Resting-state functional connectivity predicts neuroticism and extraversion in novel individuals

Published in: Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, Volume 13, Issue 2, 224-232 Abstract “The personality dimensions of neuroticism and extraversion are strongly associated with emotional experience and affective disorders. Previous studies reported functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) activity correlates of these traits, but no study has used brain-based measures to predict them. Here, using a fully cross-validated approach, we predict novel individuals’ neuroticism and extraversion from functional connectivity (FC) data observed as they simply rested during fMRI scanning. We applied a data-driven technique, connectome-based predictive modeling (CPM), to resting-state FC data and neuroticism and extraversion scores (self-reported NEO Five Factor Inventory)… Read More
