Isabel C Duarte, Ana Dionísio, Joana Oliveira, Marco Simões, Rita Correia, Joana A Dias, Salomé Caldeira, João Redondo, Miguel Castelo-Branc. Neural underpinnings of ethical decisions in life and death dilemmas in naïve and expert firefighters. Scientific reports. vol 14. issue 1. 2024-06-08. PMID:38851794. these realistic life-saving dilemmas activate the same core reward and affective processing network, in particular the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, nucleus accumbens and amygdala, irrespective of prior expertise, thereby supporting general domain theories of ethical decision-making. 2024-06-08 2024-06-11 Not clear
Jeff Boissoneault, Bethany Stennett, Michael E Robinso. Acute alcohol intake alters resting state functional connectivity of nucleus accumbens with pain-related corticolimbic structures.
