  1. Lieberman, MD; Hariri, A; Jarcho, JM; Eisenberger, NI; Bookheimer, SY (2005). An fMRI investigation of race-related amygdala activity in African-American and Caucasian-American individuals.. Nature Neuroscience, 8(6), 720-722. [15880106], [doi]

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to examine the nature of amygdala sensitivity to race. Both African-American and Caucasian-American individuals showed greater amygdala activity to African-American targets than to Caucasian-American targets, suggesting that race-related amygdala activity may result from cultural learning rather than from the novelty of other races. Additionally, verbal encoding of African-American targets produced significantly less amygdala activity than perceptual encoding of African-American targets.
