Bidirectional integration between sensory stimuli and contextual framing is fundamental to action control. Stimuli may entail context-dependent actions, while temporal or spatial characteristics of a stimulus train may establish a contextual framework for upcoming stimuli. Here we aimed at identifying core areas for stimulus-context integration and(More)
Emotion in daily life is often expressed in a multimodal fashion. Consequently emotional information from one modality can influence processing in another. In a previous fMRI study we assessed the neural correlates of audio-visual integration and found that activity in the left amygdala is significantly attenuated when a neutral stimulus is paired with an(More)
Attentional orienting can be modulated by stimulus-driven bottom-up as well as task-dependent top-down processes. In a recent study we investigated the interaction of both processes in a manual stimulus-response compatibility task. Whereas the intraparietal sulcus (IPS) and the dorsal premotor cortex (dPMC) were involved in orienting towards the stimulus(More)
Meta-analytic techniques allow cognitive neuroscientists to pool large amounts of data across many individual task-based functional neuroimaging experiments. These methods have been aided by the introduction of online databases such as Brainmap.org or Neurosynth.org, which collate peak activation coordinates obtained from thousands of published studies.(More)
