The relationship between puberty and social emotion processing.

Goddings AL, Burnett Heyes S, Bird G, Viner RM, Blakemore SJ - Dev Sci (2012)

Bottom Line: Across the entire sample, the contrast between social versus basic emotion resulted in activity within the social brain network, including dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMPFC), the posterior superior temporal sulcus, and the anterior temporal cortex (ATC) in both hemispheres.More advanced age (independent of hormone levels) was associated with lower DMPFC activity during social emotion processing.Our results suggest functionally dissociable effects of pubertal hormones and age on the adolescent social brain.

fig01:  Main effect of Social>Basic emotion across the whole group (N = 42), showing activity in the DMPFC, precuneus (left image, medial view), bilateral pSTS/TPJ, bilateral ATC (right image, lateral view), shown at p <.001, minimum cluster size 10 voxels.

Mentions: Across the whole group, the main effect of Social>Basic emotion was associated with BOLD signal change in the DMPFC, bilateral pSTS/TPJ, precuneus and bilateral ATC, as shown in Figure 1 (see Table 4).
