The role of the anterior prefrontal cortex in human cognition
Complex problem-solving and planning involve the most anterior part of the frontal lobes including the fronto-polar prefrontal cortex (FPPC), which is especially well developed in humans comparedExpand

The calculating brain: an fMRI study
To explore brain areas involved in basic numerical computation, functional magnetic imaging (fMRI) scanning was performed on college students during performance of three tasks; simple arithmetic,Expand

Frontal terminations for the inferior fronto-occipital fascicle: anatomical dissection, DTI study and functional considerations on a multi-component bundle
The anatomy and functional role of the inferior fronto-occipital fascicle (IFOF) remain poorly known. We accurately analyze its course and the anatomical distribution of its frontal terminations. WeExpand

Hyperemesis Gravidarum Complicated by Wernicke Encephalopathy: Background, Case Report, and Review of the Literature
Wernicke encephalopathy (WE) is a rare but known complication of severe hyperemesis gravidarum caused by thiamine deficiency. This article presents an unusual case that occurred at our institutionExpand

Neural correlates of imaginal aggressive behavior assessed by positron emission tomography in healthy subjects.
OBJECTIVE Neurodegenerative or traumatic lesions of the frontal lobes often lead to abnormally aggressive behavior. The authors hypothesized that the imaginal evoking of scenarios involvingExpand

Reproducibility of BOLD signal change induced by breath holding
We show that the BOLD response to breath holding after inspiration results in a complex shape due to physiological factors that influence the signal variation with a timing that is highly reproducible. Expand

Cortical localization of reading in normal children
Background: fMRI provides a noninvasive means of identifying the location and organization of neural networks that underlie cognitive functions. Objective: To identify, using fMRI, brain regionsExpand

Time perception in a neglected space
We have studied the distortion of perceived time in a patient with left neglect. This patient consistently overestimated the duration of stimuli in the neglected space. Overestimation was observedExpand

Spatial extinction on double asynchronous stimulation
Despite the fact that visual extinction is widely considered a space-based disturbance of selective attention, there has been little theoretical consensus about the nature of its pathogenicExpand

Cerebral lateralization in simultaneous interpretation
Cerebral asymmetries for L1 (Italian), L2 (English), and L3 (French, German, Spanish, or Russian) were studied, by using a verbal-manual interference paradigm, in a group of Italian right-handedExpand
