Statistical parametric maps in functional imaging: A general linear approach
Statistical parametric maps are spatially extended statistical processes that are used to test hypotheses about regionally specific effects in neuroimaging data. The most established sorts of
Spatial registration and normalization of images
A general technique that facilitates nonlinear spatial (stereotactic) normalization and image realignment is presented that minimizes the sum of squares between two images following non linear spatial deformations and transformations of the voxel (intensity) values.
Meeting of minds: the medial frontal cortex and social cognition
This work reviews the emerging literature that relates social cognition to the medial frontal cortex and proposes a theoretical model of medial frontal cortical function relevant to different aspects of social cognitive processing.
Empathy for Pain Involves the Affective but not Sensory Components of Pain
Only that part of the pain network associated with its affective qualities, but not its sensory qualities, mediates empathy, suggesting that the neural substrate for empathic experience does not involve the entire "pain matrix".
Detecting Activations in PET and fMRI: Levels of Inference and Power
It is envisaged that set-level inferences will find a role in making statistical inferences about distributed activations, particularly in fMRI.

The mentalizing (theory of mind) system of the brain is probably in operation from 18 months of age, allowing implicit attribution of intentions and other mental states, and from this age children are able to explain the misleading reasons that have given rise to a false belief.

It is speculated that it is this ability to recognize and learn from instructions rather than mere observation which permitted that advanced ability to benefit from cultural learning that seems to be unique to the human race.
The neural correlates of the verbal component of working memory
Comparisons of distribution of cerebral blood flow in these conditions localized the phonological store to the left supramarginal gyrus whereas the subvocal rehearsal system was associated with Broca's area, the first demonstration of the normal anatomy of the components of the 'articulatory loop'.
Navigation-related structural change in the hippocampi of taxi drivers.
Structural MRIs of the brains of humans with extensive navigation experience, licensed London taxi drivers, were analyzed and compared with those of control subjects who did not drive taxis, finding a capacity for local plastic change in the structure of the healthy adult human brain in response to environmental demands.
