Felix Klotzsche
You show that computer vision works quite well to recognize movement patterns and we can for sure train computer vision models that are able to distinguish threatful from harmless gestures. Would you expect that studying the “mechanics” of these models (beyond using them for feature extraction) can teach us something about how the brain performs the same task?
Sidney Carls-Diamante
Thanks for the very informative talk. I may have missed it when my internet blipped out: how or why are certain postures registered as aggressive?
Sidney Carls-Diamante
Thank you
Nack Srismith
Thank you so much for the talk! Could you please elaborate a little bit more on the ‘high-order concept of fear’? Is this in the context of conceptual knowledge/emotional consciousness?
Jessica Hazelton
Very interesting talk! I might have missed this, but I was wondering if you recorded other physiological measures during your VR studies, such as SCR, respiration, pupillometry, and if so did you see changes in these autonomic measures with the presence threatening stimuli?
Neville Magielse
Thanks a lot for the talk! From what you showed in the interspecies comparison, would it be correct to conclude that the brain activations based on social threat have become quite distinct in humans from the NHP you studied? I think it is interesting to think about, especially in light of fears that are evolutionarily conserved across primates e.g., the fear of snakes. Could you shortly elaborate on what you concluded from your species comparison?
Nack Srismith
Yes, thank you1

There is some evidence in the literature suggesting that features of the physical environment can evoke a feeling of threat or fear (e.g. in the case of edgy or angular, as opposed to curved interior spaces and objects). I was wondering about the underlying mechanisms in this case
