Cognitive Neuroscience on Personality Traits - Dictionary of Arguments
Corr I 401
Personality traits/Cognitive Neuroscience/Matthews: Recent research has continued efforts to build information-processing models of the major traits on the basis of performance data (Matthews 2008a)(1). Performance studies have become increasingly integrated with cognitive neuroscience. In part, such research is an extension of the traditional psychophysiology central to Eysenck’s (1967)(2) arousal theory; for example, through relating traits to evoked potentials that signal information-processing components (e.g., De Pascalis 2004(3); Stelmack and Rammsayer 2008(4)). Other research has picked up on newer trends in the field, including attempts to map traits directly onto fundamental brain systems, for different attentional functions, for example (Derryberry and Reed 1997)(5), and use of neuroimaging and other cognitive neuroscience techniques. >Neuroimaging/Canli.
