Description

Previous research demonstrated correlations of anterior cingulate cortex activation in response to both social exclusion and physical pain, suggesting the two may operate via a common neural circuit. If there is overlap, then it's possible that chronic activation of the circuit via one type of stimuli might influence responses in the other. The present study sought to test both these predictions.
