MMN in the visual modality: a review
TLDR
This paper reviews the studies that are relevant with regard to memory-based, automatic deviance detection ERPs in the visual system and suggests what directions should be taken for future research. Expand
Reduced anterior prefrontal cortex activation in young binge drinkers during a visual working memory task.
TLDR
Assessing visual working memory and its neural correlates in young university students who partake in intermittent consumption of large amounts of alcohol revealed that binge drinkers showed a smaller late positive component (LPC) associated with hypoactivation of the right anterior prefrontal cortex (aPFC) for matching stimuli, in comparison with control subjects. Expand
Automatic detection of motion direction changes in the human brain
TLDR
The present results suggest that a change‐detection mechanism sensitive to unattended changes in motion direction may exist in the human visual system. Expand
Executive functioning and alcohol binge drinking in university students.
TLDR
BD is associated with poorer performance of executive functions subserved by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and the results do not support enhanced vulnerability of women to alcohol neurotoxic effects. Expand
Binge drinking affects attentional and visual working memory processing in young university students.
TLDR
The results of this study confirm the presence of electrophysiological differences between young university student binge drinkers and controls during the execution of a visual task with a high working memory load. Expand
Hyperactivation of right inferior frontal cortex in young binge drinkers during response inhibition: a follow-up study.
TLDR
Young binge drinkers appear to show abnormal brain activity as measured by event-related potentials during response execution and inhibition which may represent a neural antecedent of difficulties in impulse control. Expand
The time course of the effects of central and peripheral cues on visual processing: an event-related potentials study
TLDR
These results suggest that the automatic attraction of attention by a peripheral cue results in improved sensory processing at the cued location and is replaced by an inhibitory effect when SOA increases, although cue informativeness may modulate this effect. Expand
Impact of alcohol use on inhibitory control (and vice versa) during adolescence and young adulthood: a review.
TLDR
Adolescence and young adulthood may be a particularly vulnerable period due to the weak or immature inhibitory functioning typical of this stage which may contribute to the inability of the individual to control alcohol use. Expand
Effects of a persistent binge drinking pattern of alcohol consumption in young people: a follow-up study using event-related potentials.
TLDR
It is suggested that young BDs exhibit anomalies in neural activity involved in attentional/working memory processes, which increase after 2 years of maintenance of BD, which may reflect underlying dysfunctions in neurophysiological mechanisms as well as the recruitment of additional attentional and working memory resources to enable the binge drinkers to perform the task adequately. Expand
Binge drinking trajectory and neuropsychological functioning among university students: a longitudinal study.
TLDR
Persistent BD, but not Ex-BD, is associated with verbal memory and monitoring difficulties, compatible with the hypothesis that heavy alcohol use during adolescence may affect cognitive functions that rely on the temporomesial and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Expand
