Using brain imaging and machine learning techniques, the researchers identified a neural signature of negative emotion -- a single neural activation pattern distributed across the entire brain that accurately predicts how negative a person will feel after viewing unpleasant images.
The new study is unusual because of its accuracy -- morethan 90 percent -- and the large number of participants who reflect the generaladult population rather than just college students.
The findings could help in diagnosing and treating a rangeof mental and physical health conditions.
