Clinical research criteria for the diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome)
Criteria that support the diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy, and that exclude diseases often confused with PSP, are presented. Expand
Sensitivity of revised diagnostic criteria for the behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia.
The revised criteria for behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia improve diagnostic accuracy compared with previously established criteria in a sample with known frontotmporal lobar degeneration and reflect the optimized diagnostic features, less restrictive exclusion features and a flexible structure that accommodates different initial clinical presentations.

The role of the anterior prefrontal cortex in human cognition
The results indicate that the fronto-polar prefrontal cortex selectively mediates the human ability to hold in mind goals while exploring and processing secondary goals, a process generally required in planning and reasoning. Expand
Summation Priming and Coarse Semantic Coding in the Right Hemisphere
There are now numerous observations of subtle right hemisphere (RH) contributions to language comprehension. It has been suggested that these contributions reflect coarse semantic coding in the RH.Expand
Safety and cognitive effect of frontal DC brain polarization in healthy individuals
Limited exposure to direct current polarization of the prefrontal cortex is safe and can enhance verbal fluency selectively in healthy subjects, and deserves consideration as a procedure to improve frontal lobe function in patients. Expand
Human fronto–mesolimbic networks guide decisions about charitable donation
Functional magnetic resonance imaging is used while participants anonymously donated to or opposed real charitable organizations related to major societal causes to show that the mesolimbic reward system is engaged by donations in the same way as when monetary rewards are obtained. Expand
Clock Drawing in Alzheimer's Disease
Although the Clock Drawing Test is certainly not a definitive indicator of Alzheimer's disease, the test is easy to administer and provides a useful measure of dementia severity for both research and office settings where sophisticated neuropsychological testing is not available. Expand
The Human Amygdala: An Evolved System for Relevance Detection
It is argued that the fundamental criteria for the amygdala to be a modular system are not met and the notion of a specific involvement of the human amygdala in the appraisal of relevant events that include, but are not restricted to, fear-related stimuli is suggested. Expand
Human prefrontal cortex: processing and representational perspectives
This paper argues for the validity of a representational approach to understanding PFC function and suggests that the prefrontal cortex underlies much of human higher cognition. Expand
Procedural learning in Parkinson's disease and cerebellar degeneration
The normal influence of the basal ganglia on the prefrontal cortex may be required for timely access of information to and from the working memory buffer, while the cerebellum may index and order events in the time domain and be therefore essential for any cognitive functions involving sequences.
