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

2. 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. 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.

3. What is the best desription of a mirror neurons role of action?

  • They fire both when you perform an action and watch someone else performing the same action (more robust when goal directed)
  • They only fire when you watch someone performing an action that you know how to perform
  • They only fire when you perform an action someone has taught you for the first time (more robust if goal directed)
  • They are found most likely in premotor regions such as premotor cortex and middle temporal gyrus

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

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

5. What measurement does the IAT test use?

  • Reaction time, pps racial attitude NOT reported beforehand
  • Eye-blink component, pps racial attitude reported beforehand
  • Reaction time, pps racial attitude reported beforehand
  • Eccrine sweat gland activity, Reaction time, pps racial attitude NOT reported beforehand
