TB4 Lecture 2; Social Cognition 1

The objectives of this lecture are;

  • Brain-mind correspondence (consistency and specificity)
  • Self reference
  • Perception of non-verbal cues e.g face, biological motion, eye gaze
  • Social categorisation e.g impression formation
  • Mirror neurons

Other questions in this quiz

2. In Haxby's (2000) core and extended neural models for facial processing, where does the core system start?

  • The interparietal sulcus
  • The auditory cortex
  • The visual cortex (Inferior occipital gyri, superior temporal sulcus, lateral fusiform gyrus)
  • The visual cortex (superior occipital gyri, anterior temporal sulcus, lateral fusiform gyrus)

3. What would a good example of high consistency high specificity be?

  • The amygdala will always activate in response to fearful stimuli, and amygdala is specifically activated by fear and no other emotions
  • The amygdala will not often activate in response to fearful stimuli and is also activated by lots of other emotions
  • The amygdala will always activate in response to fearful stimuli and also is activated by other emotions such as anger
  • The amygdala does not always respond to fearful stimuli, but it is only activated by them

4. Why are "people love their iphone if x is activated" fMRI studies problematic?

  • Most brain regions are not functionally specific, many areas are functionally heterogeneous
  • Most brain regions are not functionally consistent, many areas are functionally heterogeneous in their consistency

5. In a single cell recording study, from which brain area did the eye-contact cell fire with mutual eye gaze? (Chimpanzees)

  • Amygdala (distributed across the entire amygdala)
  • Right posterior superior temporal sulcus
  • Superior temporal sulcus
  • Right temporoparietal junction
