Neuronal activity was monitored with implanted electrodes, using patients undergoing neurosurgery. Participants viewed videos with relatively high emotional content and were instructed to naturally view the content or regulate their emotions. We find that emotions regulation is reflected by systematic patterns in single neuron activity.
