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.
Nonlinear Responses in fMRI: The Balloon Model, Volterra Kernels, and Other Hemodynamics
The full hemodynamic model is presented, how its associated Volterra kernels can be derived, and the model's validity in relation to empirical nonlinear characterizations of evoked responses in fMRI and other neurophysiological constraints are addressed.
The anatomy of language: contributions from functional neuroimaging

From functional imaging results, a new anatomically constrained model of word processing is proposed which reconciles the anatomical ambitions of the 19th Century neurologists and the cognitive finesse of the 20th Century cognitive models.

Anatomical and functional connectivity studies are now required to identify the processing pathways that integrate these areas to support language.
Multisubject fMRI Studies and Conjunction Analyses
It is suggested that activations common to all subjects reflect aspects of functional anatomy that may be "typical" of the population from which that group was sampled, and these commonalities can be identified by a conjunction analysis of the activation effects.
A voxel‐based morphometry study of semantic dementia: Relationship between temporal lobe atrophy and semantic memory

It is confirmed that the anterior temporal lobe is critically involved in semantic processing, and dissociate its function from that of the adjacent frontal region.
Functional anatomy of a common semantic system for words and pictures

This study studied the functional anatomy of semantic processing by using positron-emission tomography to contrast activity during two semantic tasks (probing knowledge of associations between concepts, and knowledge of the visual attributes of these concepts), performed either with words or with pictures.
Voxel-based morphometry of the human brain: Methods and applications
VBM has been useful in characterizing subtle changes in brain structure in a variety of diseases associated with neurological and psychiatric dysfunction, including schizophrenia, developmental and congenital disorders, temporal lobe epilepsy and even cluster headache.
Neurolinguistics: Structural plasticity in the bilingual brain
It is shown that learning a second language increases the density of grey matter in the left inferior parietal cortex and that the degree of structural reorganization in this region is modulated by the proficiency attained and the age at acquisition.
