Dazzled by the mystery of mentalism : the cognitive neuroscience of mental athletes
Neural processing bymental athletes (MAs) has received attention fromNeuroscience community, with several publications examining superior memorizers (Maguire et al., 2003; Bor et al., 2008), lighting calculators (Pesenti ...
Nudging cooperation in a crowd experiment
We examine the hypothesis that driven by a competition heuristic, people don't even reflect or consider whether a cooperation strategy may be better. As a paradigmatic example of this behavior we propose the zero-sum ...
Confidence through consensus : a neural mechanism for uncertainty monitoring
Models that integrate sensory evidence to a threshold can explain task accuracy, response times and confidence, yet it is still unclear how confidence is encoded in the brain. Classic models assume that confidence is ...
Disentangling interoception : insights from focal strokes affecting the perception of external and internal milieus
Interoception is the moment-to-moment sensing of the physiological condition of the body. The multimodal sources of interoception can be classified into two different streams of afferents: an internal pathway of signals ...
The neural basis of decision-making and reward processing in adults with euthymic bipolar disorder or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Background: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and bipolar disorder (BD) share DSM-IV criteria in adults and cause problems in decision-making. Nevertheless, no previous report has assessed a decision-making ...
Proprioceptive body illusions modulate the visual perception of reaching distance
The neurobiology of reaching has been extensively studied in human and non-human pri- mates. However, the mechanisms that allow a subject to decide—without engaging in explicit action—whether an object is reachable are not ...
