  • Eye-blink component, pps racial attitude reported beforehand
  • Reaction time, pps racial attitude reported beforehand

3. In biological motion, which brain area is activated by the movement of the eyes, mouth, hands and body?

  • Anterior cingulate cortex
  • Superior cingulate cortex
  • Superior temporal sulcus (STS)
  • Superior tempoparietal sulcus (STS)

4. What would be a good example of low consistency, high specificity?

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