Differential Contribution of Frontal and Temporal Cortices to Auditory Change Detection: fMRI and ERP Results
TLDR
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.
Combining electrophysiological and hemodynamic measures of the auditory oddball.
TLDR
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.
Segregating semantic and syntactic aspects of processing in the human brain: an fMRI investigation of different word types.
TLDR
The findings that semantic and syntactic aspects of processing are both functionally distinct and involve different subparts of the neuronal network underlying word processing support a domain-specific organization of the language system are found.
Sensory and cognitive mechanisms for preattentive change detection in auditory cortex
TLDR
This work identified regions that mediate either of the two mechanisms by combining functional magnetic resonance imaging with an experimental protocol controlling for refractoriness, and found that in the traditional oddball paradigm both mechanisms contribute to irregularity detection.
The functional neuroanatomy of novelty processing: integrating ERP and fMRI results.
TLDR
The fMRI activation pattern suggests that the superior temporal gyrus is involved in novelty detection, whereas accessing and retrieving semantic concepts related to novel sounds additionally engages the rPFC.
Neural basis of processing sequential and hierarchical syntactic structures
TLDR
The results suggest that the brain's involvement in syntactic processing is determined by the type of rule used, with BA 44/45 playing an important role during language processing when long‐distance dependencies are processed.
Brain Correlates of Language Learning: The Neuronal Dissociation of Rule-Based versus Similarity-Based Learning
TLDR
It is shown by means of functional magnetic resonance imaging that the brain dissociates the two mechanisms: the left anterior hippocampus supports similarity-based learning, whereas the left ventral premotor cortex is selectively engaged by abstract rule processing.
Separating intra-modal and across-modal training effects in visual working memory: an fMRI investigation.
TLDR
It is inferred that visual processes of working memory can be trained specifically, and these effects can be functionally dissociated from alterations in general control processes common to both working memory trainings.
