In a previous study using positron emission tomography (PET), we demonstrated that focused attention to a location in the visual field produced increased regional cerebral blood flow in the fusiform gyrus contralateral to the attended hemifield (Heinze et al. [1994]: Nature 372:543). We related these effects to modulations in the amplitude of the P1(More)
Tonotopic organization within the human auditory cortex was investigated with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) using the blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) contrast mechanism. Single-frequency pulsed tones were alternated with no-tone conditions to elicit stimulus-specific functional activity. Differential frequency-specific activity was(More)
Livingstone et al. [Livingstone, M. S., Rosen, G. D., Drislane, F. W. and Galaburda, A. M. Physiological and anatomical evidence for a magnocellular defect in developmental dyslexia. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science U.S.A. 88, 7943-7947, 1991] presented evidence for a defect of the magnocellular visual processing stream in developmental(More)
Topographic maps are commonly constructed from electrical scalp recordings (such as EEGs and ERPs) using several different interpolation methods. It is important to determine the accuracy of such maps. Previous assessments of interpolation methods have been based on global error measures and the visual appearance of the topographic maps. However, the(More)
The differences of word processing between a group of adult developmental dyslexics and control subjects were examined with the event-related potential (ERP) technique. In particular, the effects of word frequency and word recognition were assessed. The subjects viewed a series of frequently and infrequently used words, most of which were repeated after(More)
1. SUMMARY Many companies are exploring or actively engaged in outsourcing software development and other IT-related operations. There is increasing interest in outsourcing to overseas companies, particularly in countries like Ireland, India, and China [9][10][12]. Such " offshoring " is typically motivated by: 1. Reduced cost due to lower hourly wages;(More)
