Abstract The current study investigated if feedback-related negativity (FRN) and mid-frontal theta oscillations would respond differently during the outcome evaluations of conformity decisions, which were consistent with self vs. others’ opinions. Participants first performed a perceptual judgment task, then saw the majority opinion prior to submitting their final decision, and subsequently learned whether their final decision was correct. With incongruent initial self and others’ opinions, the ...

Abstract In a recently published article, Zamariola et al. (2018) listed four problems of interoceptive accuracy (IAcc) scores as measured with Schandry's heartbeat counting task. In this comment, we clarify that IAcc scores are ratio variables, the analyses of which can result in misleading interpretations and incorrect conclusions. We examine the findings of Zamariola et al. (2018) by reanalyzing their data using statistical methods more adequate than the bivariate correlational analyses condu...

Abstract Background Heart rate variability (HRV) is discussed to signal social safety. Conversely, shyness might be accompanied by attenuated feelings of social safety. This study aimed to examine if shy individuals show compromised HRV in everyday life and if social interactions with close others (both face to face and computer-mediated) might moderate this association. Methods Social interactions and HRV (root mean squared successive differences) were recorded across three consecutive days in ...

Abstract Studies have documented the predictive utility of an integrative analysis of ability influence on effort and cardiovascular response. An assumption is that influence is driven by perception. We evaluated this altering ability perception through negative (nocebo) or positive (placebo) suggestion. Participants ingested a pill having been told it would reduce or enhance cognitive clarity. They then were presented a math task with the chance to earn an incentive if they met a low- or high p...

Abstract Multi-level modeling examined the association between cortisol awakening responses (CAR) and different PTSD symptom clusters in a sample of 158 female participants presenting with intimate partner violence-related PTSD. Results revealed that arousal over the past week and month, respectively ([β = -.124, z = -2.33, p = .028; β = -.147, z = -2.19, p = .028]) significantly moderated the trajectory of cortisol levels, and emotional numbing symptom severity (over the past week [β = -.122, z...

Abstract We ask whether actions of the norepinephrine (NE) system during response inhibition are affected by properties of lower level sensory stimulus processing. We used a somato-sensory Go/Nogo task and combined ERP recordings with pupil diameter recordings as an index of NE system activity. The Go/Nogo task was designed to achieve processing of tactile stimuli predominantly over primary somatosensory (SI) and secondary somatosensory (SII) areas. The data show that response inhibition was bet...

Abstract In this study, we focus on the spontaneous activity related to manual verbs to determine the extent to which semantic processing of manual verbs affects spontaneous arm muscle activity. For this purpose, we recorded the arm’s electromyographic activity while participants read manual and non-manual verbs, focusing their attention on the semantic content or a specific letter. In addition, we manipulated the arm position (in front of the body or behind the back) to observe postural priming...

Abstract Sighs have important physiological and psychological regulatory functions. These rewarding effects of a sigh potentially reinforce sighing in situations that require physiological and/or psychological regulation. The present study aimed to investigate whether sighs can become learned behaviors via operant learning. In two studies, we manipulated the effect of spontaneous sighs in response to dyspnea relief, by either punishing a sigh by the onset of dyspnea, or not punishing a sigh by c...

Abstract Psychosocial factors predict the development and course of cardiovascular disease, perhaps through sympathetic and parasympathetic mechanisms. At rest, heart rate (HR) is under parasympathetic control, often measured as high-frequency heart rate variability (HF-HRV). During stress, HR is influenced jointly by parasympathetic and sympathetic processes, the latter often quantified as pre-ejection period (PEP). In studies of cardiovascular risk factors that involve social interaction (e.g....
