Good morning. Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit kicks off today, featuring some of the biggest names in the media business, and it looks as if there will be at least one news item. As Business Insider’s Alex Heath sleuthed, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel is likely to be announcing a partnership with artist Jeff Koons to showcase his famous art installations as augmented reality 3-D objects within the Snapchat app. The issue of relying on automation raised its head again for both Google and Facebook on Monday in the aftermath of the deadly Las Vegas shooting. As CNN reported, for a few hours, Google’s “Top Stories” section featured a 4chan message-board discussion that wrongly identified the shooter. Facebook’s “Crisis Response” page surfaced a now-deleted story from far-right website the Gateway Pundit that also blamed the wrong person for the massacre. Both Google and Facebook removed the posts, but the screenshots had already been captured, and questions are being raised again about how much responsibility the two companies are taking upon themselves to prevent the spread of misinformation. “ Google and Facebook Failed Us ,” read the Atlantic’s headline. If companies like Google and Facebook rely too much on human intervention, they face accusations of bias, and it’s a slippery slope to being considered as media owners rather than the passive platforms they would prefer to be.
Volume 177 , 1 August 2017, Pages 268-276 Reward-related frontostriatal activity and smoking behavior among adolescents in treatment for smoking cessation Author links open overlay panel Kathleen A.Garrisona One of the first longitudinal fMRI studies of smoking cessation treatment in adolescents. Adolescents show increased non-drug reward-related brain activity pre- to post-treatment. Increases in reward-related brain activity were associated with smoking abstinence. Tobacco use is often initiated during adolescence and continued into adulthood despite desires to quit. A better understanding of the neural correlates of abstinence from smoking in adolescents may inform more effective smoking cessation interventions. Neural reward systems are implicated in tobacco use disorder, and adolescent smokers have shown reduced reward-related ventral striatal activation related to increased smoking. The current study evaluated nondrug reward anticipation in adolescent smokers using a monetary incentive delay task in fMRI pre- and post- smoking cessation treatment (n = 14). This study tested how changes in neural responses to reward anticipation pre- to post-treatment were related to reduced smoking. An exploratory analysis in a larger sample of adolescents with only pre-treatment fMRI (n = 28) evaluated how neural responses to reward anticipation were related to behavioral inhibition and behavioral activation scales. Adolescent smokers showed pre- to post-treatment increases in reward anticipation-related activity in the bilateral nucleus accumbens and insula, and medial prefrontal cortex, and greater increases in reward anticipation-related activity were correlated with larger percent days of smoking abstinence during treatment. These findings suggest that reduced smoking during smoking cessation treatment is associated with a “recovery of function” in frontostriatal responses to nondrug reward anticipation in adolescent smokers, although comparison with a developmental control group of adolescent nonsmokers is warranted.
