“What” and “where” in the human auditory system
The extent to which sound identification and sound localization depend on specialized auditory pathways was examined by using functional magnetic resonance imaging and event-related brain potentials.Expand

The time course of neural activity supporting performance during the Stroop task was investigated using event-related brain potentials (ERPs). Four spatially and temporally distinct modulations wereExpand

Mechanisms of spontaneous confabulations: a strategic retrieval account.
The 'temporality' hypothesis of confabulation posits that confabulations are true memories displaced in time, while the 'strategic retrieval' hypothesis suggests a general retrieval failure of whichExpand

Mismatch Negativity: Different Water in the Same River
The mismatch negativity (MMN) is a frontal negative deflection in the human event-related potential that typically occurs when a repeating auditory stimulus changes in some manner. The MMN can beExpand

Assessing the auditory dual-pathway model in humans
Evidence from anatomical and neurophysiological studies in nonhuman primates suggests a dual-pathway model of auditory processing wherein sound identity and sound location information are segregated along ventral and dorsal streams, respectively. Expand

Effects of task context and fluctuations of attention on neural activity supporting performance of the Stroop task
The influence of task context and transient fluctuations in attentional control on neural processes supporting performance of the Stroop task was investigated using event-related brain potentials.Expand

Bottom-up and top-down influences on auditory scene analysis: evidence from event-related brain potentials.
The physiological processes underlying the segregation of concurrent sounds were investigated through the use of event-related brain potentials. The stimuli were complex sounds containing multipleExpand

Effects of Attention on Neuroelectric Correlates of Auditory Stream Segregation
A general assumption underlying auditory scene analysis is that the initial grouping of acoustic elements is independent of attention. Expand

Neurophysiological evidence of error-monitoring deficits in patients with schizophrenia.
The present study was designed to investigate the time-course of neural activity underlying the disruption of response monitoring in patients with schizophrenia. Event-related brain potentials wereExpand

Age-related decline in inhibitory control contributes to the increased Stroop effect observed in older adults.
Past research has demonstrated an age-related increase in the Stroop effect. Some theorists have suggested that this increase results from a decline in the ability to inhibit word information onExpand
