Der Zusammenhang zwischen kognitiver Emotionsregulation und der Fähigkeit, negative Emotionen zu beeinflussen - eine fMRI-Studie
The capacity to regulate emotions is crucial for mental and physical health. Aim was to look at relationships between the ability to regulate negative emotions with reappraisal, mood repair skills, and brain activity. 26 participants were studied with fMRI to find neural correlates of emotion regulation. Emotional stimuli were self-esteem threatening words. High mood repair scores are correlated with larger activation differences in subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC) and insula when participants looked at rather than reappraised negative words. Being capable to successfully repair mood generates different brain activity patterns. As vACC activation patterns have been linked to depressive mood this can be discussed in the context of risk and protective factors of mental health.
