A strong cardiac defense (fear) response was elicited by presenting an abrupt, loud acoustic stimulus following a 10-min period of quiescence. Electrocortical responses to aversive and neutral pictures following defensive stimulus onset were measured using dense-array EEG. Pictures were flickered at 12.5 Hz to evoke steady-state visual evoked potentials (ssVEP), which can be reliably extracted on the basis of single trials. Visual cortical activity indexing perceptual processing was substantially heightened when pictures were shown in temporal proximity to (i.e., 5 s after) the defense stimulus. Replicating previous studies, aversive visual stimuli were associated with enhanced ssVEP amplitude, compared to neutral stimuli. Acute defense facilitates visual perception of external cues and preserves accurate discrimination between threatening and safe cues.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-07-14T08:25:03Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Guerra, Pedro</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Keil, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Ihssen, Niklas</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Guerra, Pedro</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lang, Peter J.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Bradley, Margaret M.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lang, Peter J.</dc:creator> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Neuropsychologia 48 (2010), 12, pp. 3580-3584</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Vila, Jaime</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
