Study Name Capacity for upregulation of emotional processing in psychopathy: all you have to do is ask
Study Acronym
Funding Agency NIDA NIH HHS
Primary Research Focus This study examined two flaws in previous studies of psychopathic individuals. First if they are equally capable of deliberately manifesting other negative emotions (e.g. fear, guilt) and second if the evaluated participants in instructed-processing condition were not actually increasing their own emotional reactions but were instead finding a way to mirror the other person’s emotions. The study was designed to further research in this area, and to address these two important questions.
