“Col muso non si scherza... oppure sì? Un’attitudine giocosa riduce l’impatto negativo del silent treatment come forma di ostracismo interpersonale”

Maurizio Brasini, Mauro Giacomantonio, Francesco Mancini

ABSTRACT: La letteratura sull’ostracismo sociale costituisce ad oggi il principale punto di riferimento concettuale per comprendere il fenomeno del “muso”. Sebbene le esperienze interpersonali caratterizzate dal muso siano estremamente comuni ed appaia evidente la sofferenza che questo comporta, tuttavia la ricerca specifica sull’argomento è poco sviluppata; in particolare, non esistono indicazioni univoche su quali ...

Moral Orientation Guilt Scale (MOGS): Development and validation of a novel guilt measurement

Alessandra Mancini, Umberto Granziola, Daniele Migliorati, Andrea Gragnani, Giuseppe Femia, Teresa Cosentino, Angelo Maria Saliani, Katia Tenore, Olga Ines Luppino, Claudia Perdighe, Francesco Mancini

ABSTRACT: Guilt emerges as the emotional result of a conflict between our behavior and internalized morality. Since morality is best conceptualized as a multidimensional construct, guilt results in different phenomena depending on the moral values internalized by the “guilty”. Indeed, mounting evidence supports the distinction between guilt feelings emerging from deontological morality and guilt feelings emerging from ...

What if metacognition is not enough? Its association with delusion may be moderated by self-criticism

Simone Cheli, Veronica Cavalletti, Francesco Mancini, Gil Goldzweig

ABSTRACT: Metacognition among those reporting psychotic symptoms is associated with a distortion in the way they understand their own and others’ mental states. Recent advances suggest that distortion in the form of self-criticism may activate a threat response and fuel symptom expression. At high level of self-criticism metacognition may reduce its protective role towards psychosis. Here, we explored whether the ...

Forgiveness in the Modulation of Responsibility in a Sample of Italian Adolescents with a Tendency towards Conduct or Obsessive–Compulsive Problems

Carlo Buonanno, Enrico Iuliano, Giuseppe Grossi, Francesco Mancini, Emiliana Stendardo, Fabrizia Tudisco, Barbara Pizzini

ABSTRACT: Although obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and the conduct disorders (CD) express a contrasting symptomatology, they could represent different answers to a common matrix about morality. In the literature, some theoretical models describe people with OCD as individuals who experience high levels of responsibility and guilt. On the other hand, adolescents with a CD are described as if they do ...

Giusy Olivito, Michela Lupo, Andrea Gragnani, Marco Saettoni, Libera Siciliano, Corinna Pancheri, Matteo Panfili, Mara Cercignani, Marco Bozzali, Roberto Delle Chiaie, Maria Leggio

ABSTRACT: Bipolar disorder (BD) is a major mental illness characterized by periods of (hypo) mania and depression with inter-episode remission periods. Functional studies in BD have consistently implicated a set of linked cortical and subcortical limbic regions in the pathophysiology of the disorder, also including the cerebellum. However, the cerebellar role in the neurobiology of BD still needs to be clarified. Seventeen ...

Depression in the Mirror: Depression Severity and Its Link to Negative Judgments of Symptoms

Federica Visco-Comandini, Andrea Gragnani, Mauro Giacomantonio, Giuseppe Romano, Manuel Petrucci, Francesco Mancini

ABSTRACT: Background and Objectives: Depressive states represent a normal and physiological response to the experience of loss. However, it is possible to identify some elements that allow distinguishing physiological depressive states from pathological ones. Over the years, research has confirmed that a stable tendency to negative self-evaluation is a transdiagnostic factor that triggers and amplifies dysfunctional emotional ...

Contributions of the Right Prefrontal and Parietal Cortices to the Attentional Blink: A tDCS Study

Anna Pecchinenda, Francesca De Luca, Bianca Monachesi, Manuel Petrucci, Mariella Pazzaglia, Fabrizio Doricchi, Michal Lavidor

ABSTRACT: The AB refers to the performance impairment that occurs when visual selective attention is overloaded through the very rapid succession of two targets (T1 and T2) among distractors by using the rapid serial visual presentation task (RSVP). Under these conditions, performance is typically impaired when T2 is presented within 200–500 ms from T1 (AB). Based on neuroimaging studies suggesting a role of top-down ...

Deontological and Altruistic Guilt Feelings: A Dualistic Thesis

Francesco Mancini, Amelia Gangemi

ABSTRACT: In this paper we argue in favor of the existence of two different guilt feelings: altruistic guilt (AG) and deontological guilt (DG). AG arises from having harmed, through one's own action or omission, an innocent victim, while DG arises from the transgression of an internalized norm. In most daily experiences of guilt feelings both types are present, but we argue that they are not traceable to each other and that ...

ABSTRACT: The study was designed to test the hypothesis that indirect inhibition of the insula via cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) would decrease disgust and moral rigidity in 36 healthy individuals undergoing 15 min of tDCS over the temporal lobe. To obtain a comprehensive assessment of disgust, we used subjective (affect rating), physiological (heart rate variability [HRV]), and implicit measures ...

ABSTRACT: One of the several ways in which affect may influence cognition is when people use affect as a source of information about external events. Emotional reasoning, ex-consequentia reasoning, and affect-as-information are terms referring to the mechanism that can lead people to take their emotions as information about the external world, even when the emotion is not generated by the situation to be evaluated. ...

ABSTRACT: Symptoms of borderline personality disorder (BPD) and bipolar disorder (BD) often overlap. In some cases, it is difficult to conduct a differential diagnosis based only on current diagnostic criteria Therefore, it is important to find clinical factors with high discriminatory specificity that, used together with structured or semi‐structured interviews, could help improve diagnostic practice.

ABSTRACT: Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating mental health disorder that can easily become a treatment-resistant condition. Although effective therapies exist, only about half of the patients seem to benefit from them when we consider treatment refusal, dropout rates, and residual symptoms. Thus, providing effective augmentation to standard therapies could improve existing treatments. Group ...

The scientific literature identifies the Pt scale as a distinctive marker, but does not report data related to a specific OCD profile of the MMPI-2 test. Therefore, based on some clinical considerations and preliminary investigations, the following study aims to ...
