Brain regions with mirror properties: A meta-analysis of 125 human fMRI studies
Mirror neurons in macaque area F5 fire when an animal performs an action, such as a mouth or limb movement, and also when the animal passively observes an identical or similar action performed byExpand
Free-viewing perceptual asymmetries for the judgement of brightness, numerosity and size
Perceptual asymmetries under free-viewing conditions were investigated in 24 normal dextral adults. Three tasks were administered that required participants to chose between a pair of left/rightExpand
Unconscious priming eliminates automatic binding of colour and alphanumeric form in synaesthesia
Synaesthesia is an unusual perceptual phenomenon in which events in one sensory modality induce vivid sensations in another. Individuals may ‘taste’ shapes, ‘hear’ colours, or ‘feel’ sounds.Expand
A systematic, large-scale study of synaesthesia: implications for the role of early experience in lexical-colour associations
For individuals with synaesthesia, stimuli in one sensory modality elicit anomalous experiences in another modality. For example, the sound of a particular piano note may be 'seen' as a uniqueExpand
fMRI Adaptation Reveals Mirror Neurons in Human Inferior Parietal Cortex
Mirror neurons, as originally described in the macaque, have two defining properties [1, 2]: They respond specifically to a particular action (e.g., bringing an object to the mouth), and they produceExpand
Executive Brake Failure following Deactivation of Human Frontal Lobe
In the course of daily living, humans frequently encounter situations in which a motor activity, once initiated, becomes unnecessary or inappropriate. Under such circumstances, the ability to inhibitExpand
Dynamic cooperation and competition between brain systems during cognitive control
The human brain is characterized by a remarkable ability to adapt its information processing based on current goals. This ability, which is encompassed by the psychological construct of cognitiveExpand
Understanding the minds of others: A neuroimaging meta-analysis
Theory of mind (ToM) is an important skill that refers broadly to the capacity to understand the mental states of others. A large number of neuroimaging studies have focused on identifying theExpand
Phasic alerting of neglect patients overcomes their spatial deficit in visual awareness
Patients with extensive damage to the right hemisphere of their brain often exhibit unilateral neglect of the left side of space. The spatial attention of these patients is strongly biased towardsExpand
Amygdala Responses to Fearful and Happy Facial Expressions under Conditions of Binocular Suppression
The human amygdala plays a crucial role in processing affective information conveyed by sensory stimuli. Facial expressions of fear and anger, which both signal potential threat to an observer,Expand
