However, little is known about the nature and the degree of automaticity of this interpretation bias. We applied an implicit association test (IAT) in 20 subjects during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate behavioral and neural correlates of implicit attitudes toward symptom words. On the behavioral level, body symptom words elicited strong negative implicit association effects, as indexed by slowed reaction times, when symptom words were paired with the attribute "harmless" (incongruent condition). fMRI revealed increased activation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and posterior parietal cortex for the comparison of incongruent words with control words, as well as with a lower significance threshold also in comparison to congruent words. Moreover, activation in the DLPFC, posterior parietal cortex, nucleus accumbens, and cerebellum varied with individual levels of HA (again, in comparison to control words, as well as with a lower significance threshold also in comparison to congruent words). Slowed reaction times as well as increased activation in dorsolateral prefrontal and posterior parietal cortex point to increased inhibitory demands during the incongruent IAT condition. The positive association between HA severity and neural activity in nucleus accumbens, dorsolateral prefrontal, and posterior parietal cortex suggests that HA is characterized by both intensified negative implicit attitudes and hampered cognitive control mechanisms when confronted with body symptoms.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Bailer, Josef</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/45279/3/Mier_2-y61n38rdgu935.pdf"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:title>Cough Is Dangerous : Neural Correlates of Implicit Body Symptoms Associations</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Diener, Carsten</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kerstner, Tobias</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dc:creator>Rist, Fred</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Mier, Daniela</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-03-04T09:44:09Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Diener, Carsten</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-03-04T09:44:09Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Rist, Fred</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Ofer, Julia</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Witthöft, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Witthöft, Michael</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Ofer, Julia</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/45279/3/Mier_2-y61n38rdgu935.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Kerstner, Tobias</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mier, Daniela</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bailer, Josef</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/45279"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
