Differential Contribution of Frontal and Temporal Cortices to Auditory Change Detection: fMRI and ERP Results
The results suggest that the right fronto-opercular cortex is part of the neural network generating the MMN, and that small deviants were hardly detected under fMRI conditions. Expand
Prefrontal cortex involvement in preattentive auditory deviance detection: neuroimaging and electrophysiological evidence
It is argued that the right IFG mediates auditory deviance detection in case of low discriminability between a sensory memory trace and auditory input, and might be part of top-down modulation of the deviant detection system in the STG. Expand

A neurophysiologically based model of recognition memory retrieval is presented and it is shown that coupling recognition memory subprocesses with distinct old/new effects allow examination of the time course of the processes that contribute to correct and to illusory memories. Expand
Better or worse than expected? Aging, learning, and the ERN
A substantial reduction of the FRN is observed in the elderly, which indicates that older adults are less affected by negative feedback and rely more on positive feedback during learning, which points to an age-related asymmetry in the processing of feedback valence. Expand
Combining electrophysiological and hemodynamic measures of the auditory oddball.
Inverse solutions for dipole orientation provide evidence for significant activation close to Heschl's gyri during deviancy processing in the 110-160-ms time interval (MMN), whereas target detection could be modeled by two dipoles in the superior temporal gyrus between 320 and 380 ms. Expand
Temporal structure of syntactic parsing: early and late event-related brain potential effects.
Event-related brain potentials were recorded from participants listening to or reading sentences that were correct, contained a violation of the required syntactic category, or contained a syntactic-category ambiguity to be consistent with a 2-stage model of parsing. Expand
Recognition Memory for Emotional and Neutral Faces: An Event-Related Potential Study
The results are consistent with the view that processes promoting recollection are facilitated for negative events and that emotion may affect recognition performance by influencing criterion setting mediated by the prefrontal cortex. Expand
Recognition memory for one-trial-unitized word pairs: Evidence from event-related potentials
The electrophysiological correlates of retrieval of word pairs after two different encoding conditions are investigated and the possibility that unitization leads to the engagement of specific forms of familiarity-conceptual fluency and absolute familiarity is discussed. Expand
Event related brain potentials and illusory memories: the effects of differential encoding.
The ERP data indicate that, in addition to the false recognition rate, strategic processes during encoding, such as processing conceptual features, are an important factor in determining electrophysiological differences between true and false recognition. Expand
Slow cortical potentials during retention of object, spatial, and verbal information.
The results indicate that a parietal negative SP reflects processes of spatial selective attention whereas a parieto-occipital positive SP indexes the retention of visual object information. Expand
