From Coarse to Fine? Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Cortical Face Processing
The present evidence suggests the coarse-to-fine strategy as a plausible modus operandi in high-level visual cortex in face-preferring cortical regions over time. Expand
The adult galactosemic phenotype
The hypothesis that galactosemia is a progressive neurodegenerative disease is not supported, however, greater attention to depression, anxiety, and social relationships may relieve the impact of this disorder in adults. Expand
Increased attention but more efficient disengagement: neuroscientific evidence for defensive processing of threatening health information.
The findings provide the first neuroscientific support for the hypothesis that threatening health information causes more efficient disengagement among those for whom the health threat is self-relevant. Expand
Brain-Based Translation: fMRI Decoding of Spoken Words in Bilinguals Reveals Language-Independent Semantic Representations in Anterior Temporal Lobe
Bilinguals derive the same semantic concepts from equivalent, but acoustically different, words in their first and second languages. The neural mechanisms underlying the representation ofExpand
What the brain does before the tongue slips.
It is proposed that this activity reflects the simultaneous activation of 2 competing speech plans on processing levels related to the construction of a rather "phonetic" speech plan contrasting with the traditional view, assuming the substitution of abstract phonological representations as the main source for sound errors.

Neural correlates of semantic and syntactic processes in the comprehension of case marked pronouns: Evidence from German and Dutch
It is suggested that the more prominent case violation in Dutch caused the earlier onset of the positivity in the Dutch study, suggesting that pronoun resolution with gender incongruency between the pronoun and the antecedent suffers from semantic as well as syntactic integration problems. Expand
Interference and facilitation in overt speech production investigated with event-related potentials
The results support the view that several distinct processes give rise to the reaction time results often observed in picture naming, by indicating that the increased naming latencies for linguistic relative to nonlinguistic distractors are because of general conflict-monitoring processes. Expand
Decoding Articulatory Features from fMRI Responses in Dorsal Speech Regions
The role of articulatory representations during passive listening is examined using carefully controlled stimuli (spoken syllables) in combination with multivariate fMRI decoding and revealed articulatory-specific brain responses of speech at multiple cortical levels, including auditory, sensorimotor, and motor regions, suggesting the representation of sensorsimotor information during passive speech perception. Expand
The spatiotemporal pattern of auditory cortical responses during verbal hallucinations
Using spatial independent component analysis (sICA) to extract the activity patterns associated with auditory verbal hallucinations in six schizophrenia patients, it is suggested that detection of this activity may be facilitated by examining hallucination epochs of sufficient length, in combination with a data-driven approach.

Event-related potential responses to love-related facial stimuli
Interpreting the LPP as reflecting motivated attention, this implies that romantic love is accompanied by increased attention for the face of one's beloved. Expand
