The neural basis of empathy.
Empathy--the ability to share the feelings of others--is fundamental to our emotional and social lives. Previous human imaging studies focusing on empathy for others' pain have consistently shownExpand

Graph-theoretical analysis reveals disrupted small-world organization of cortical thickness correlation networks in temporal lobe epilepsy.
Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common drug-resistant epilepsy in adults. As morphometric studies have shown widespread structural damage in TLE, this condition is often referred to as aExpand

Longitudinal and cross-sectional analysis of atrophy in pharmacoresistant temporal lobe epilepsy
Background: Whether recurrent epileptic seizures induce brain damage is debated. Disease progression in epilepsy has been evaluated only in a few community-based studies involving patients withExpand

Imaging structural and functional brain networks in temporal lobe epilepsy
Early imaging studies in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) focused on the search for mesial temporal sclerosis, as its surgical removal results in clinically meaningful improvement in about 70% ofExpand

Cortical thickness analysis in temporal lobe epilepsy
Objective: To assess the reproducibility of neocortical atrophy and its clinical significance across the spectrum of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), in particular with respect to postsurgical outcome.Expand

Impulse Control and Underlying Functions of the Left DLPFC Mediate Age-Related and Age-Independent Individual Differences in Strategic Social Behavior
Human social exchange is often characterized by conflicts of interest requiring strategic behavior for their resolution. To investigate the development of the cognitive and neural mechanismsExpand

Exploring the role of the posterior middle temporal gyrus in semantic cognition: Integration of anterior temporal lobe with executive processes
TLDR
We show that an area of the left posterior middle temporal gyrus implicated in semantic control by a recent meta-analysis was activated in a conjunction of (i) semantic association over size judgements and (ii) action over colour feature matching. Expand

Automated detection of cortical dysplasia type II in MRI-negative epilepsy
Objective: To detect automatically focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II in patients with extratemporal epilepsy initially diagnosed as MRI-negative on routine inspection of 1.5 and 3.0T scans.Expand

Basal temporal sulcal morphology in healthy controls and patients with temporal lobe epilepsy
Background: We previously demonstrated that shape variants of the hippocampal formation are more prevalent in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) than in healthy individuals. Objective: ToExpand

Medial prefrontal and anterior cingulate cortical thickness predicts shared individual differences in self-generated thought and temporal discounting
TLDR
We found that individuals with a higher tendency to engage in TUT under low-demanding conditions show increased thickness of medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and anterior/midcingulate cortex. Expand
