Call for papers: Psychophysiology — cognitive and affective processes

cognitive neuroscience,emotions,journal — thomasr @ 3:46 pm

Psychophysiology was the first journal dedicated to the publication of research on relationships between the physiological and psychological aspects of brain and behavior, and it remains the most well-established journal in this field. This prestigious international journal continues to play a key role in advancing psychophysiological science and human neuroscience. Psychophysiology reports on new theoretical, empirical, and methodological advances that inform psychology and psychiatry, cognitive science, cognitive and affective neuroscience, social science, health science and behavioral medicine, biomedical engineering, and signal processing and statistics.

Since its inception in 1964, Psychophysiology has published seminal papers relevant to the role of regional brain specialization in perceptual, cognitive, and emotional function. The journal’s commitment to brain imaging has been continuously evident as the field has both specialized and expanded, encompassing a wide variety of techniques and tools including high-density EEG, MEG, magnetic source imaging (MEG + MRI), and near-infrared spectroscopy. Psychophysiology continues this publication tradition by featuring papers that employ functional MRI (fMRI). Indeed, fMRI is the quintessential psychophysiological measure, revealing fundamental relationships between psychological processes and physiological measures of their neural substrate.

We are interested in papers that expand the application of fMRI to illuminate a wide variety of psychological phenomena, both normative and clinical. Given Psychophysiology’s long tradition of publishing innovative methodological and statistical papers, we also welcome manuscripts reporting innovative techniques for fMRI.

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/psyp. Submissions should include a brief cover letter indicating that informed consent was obtained from human subjects and that human or infrahuman subjects were treated in accordance with appropriate ethical guidelines. Manuscripts must conform to the specifications of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 5th edition.

Decision-making special issue in Science:

From Mind Hacks: This week’s Science has a special selection of papers on the psychology and neuroscience of decision making. While most of the articles are closed-access, one on how game theory and neuroscience are helping us understand social decision-making is freely available.

It is a great introduction to ‘neuroeconomics’, a field that attempts to work out how the brain supports cost-benefit type decisions.

This can be directly applied to financial decision-making, but also to other types of situations where weighing possible gains and losses is important, whether the gains and losses are in the form of money, time, social advantage or status – to name just a few.

One of the crucial discoveries of recent years is that people do not act as rational maximisers – making individual decisions on how to get the most benefit out of each choice. In fact, social influences can be huge and often lead people to reject no-risk economic gains when then feel it is socially unjustified.

This had led the field into interesting territory, both informing models of the economy, and illuminating how we make social decisions.

As part of the neuroeconomic approach, researchers have begun to investigate the psychological and neural correlates of social decisions using tasks derived from a branch of experimental economics known as Game Theory. These tasks, though beguilingly simple, require sophisticated reasoning about the motivations of other players. Recent research has combined these paradigms with a variety of neuroscientific methods in an effort to gain a more detailed picture of social decision-making. The benefits of this approach are twofold. First, neuroscience can describe important biological constraints on the processes involved, and indeed, research is revealing that many of the processes underlying complex decision-making may overlap with more fundamental brain mechanisms. Second, actual decision behavior in these tasks often does not conform to the predictions of Game Theory, and therefore, more precise characterizations of behavior will be important in adapting these models to better fit how decisions are actually made.

Young minds — 3 papers

The journal Cognitive Development has released its latest issue, with a few interesting titles.

Among these, we here present three titles with direct impact on the study of consciousness. These cover topics as self-regulation in pre-schoolers, decision making in adolescence, and impulsivity and control in childhood.
