Performance/neuroscience/Matthews: A study using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) confirmed that, during task performance, Extraversion correlates with activity in brain areas believed to be implicated in working memory and executive control (Gray, Burgess, Schaefer et al. 2005)(1). Humphreys and Revelle (1984)(2) also derived the traditional inverted-U function linking arousal to performance as a special case applying to complex tasks such as intelligence tests only.
