Brain functional connectivity in valence of social emotion

Abstract

The aim of this study was to find brain functional connectivity in valence of social emotion. Valence stimuli were presented to 27 participants and 8ch EEG was measured. Normalized EEG coherence byvalence was compared using independent T-test. Right frontoparietal(F4-P4) connectivity was increased when negative social emotion was evoked. In conclusion, negative social emotion caused attention distraction and leads to lower cognitive performance.
