1. What did the original fMRI study by Phelps et al (2000) show?

  • Pps who showed more prejudicial attitudes to black people showed larger amygdala activation for white rather than black faces. Linear correlation with self report attitude.
  • Pps who showed more prejudicial attitudes to black people showed larger amygdala activation for black rather than white faces. No correlation with self report attitude.
  • Pps who showed more prejudicial attitudes to black people showed larger amygdala activation for white rather than black faces. No correlation with self report attitude.
  • Pps who showed more prejudicial attitudes to black people showed larger amygdala activation for black rather than white faces. Linear correlation with self report attitude.

2. How does the consistency & specificty concept affect how we interpret fMRI studies?

  • The type of reasoning along the lines of "they love their iphone if insula activated after looking at iphone" is only correct if insula shows both high consistency and specificity to iphone
  • The type of reasoning along the lines of "they love their iphone if insula activated after looking at iphone" is only correct if insula shows neither high consistency and specificity to iphone
  • The type of reasoning along the lines of "they love their iphone if insula activated after looking at iphone" is only correct if insula shows high consistency and low specificity to iphone
  • The type of reasoning along the lines of "they love their iphone if insula activated after looking at iphone" is only correct if insula shows low consistency and high specificity to iphone
