Visual object recognition is subserved by ventral temporal and occipital regions of the brain. Regions comprising the dorsal visual pathway have not been considered relevant for object recognition, despite strong categorical biases for tool-related information in those regions. Here, we show that dorsal stream processes influence object categorization. We… (More)
This note introduces the notion of a hyperdecidable pseudovariety. This notion appears naturally in trying to prove decidability of the membership problem of semidirect products of pseudovarieties of semigroups. It turns out to be a generalization of a notion introduced by C. J. Ash in connection with his proof of the \type II" theorem. The main results in… (More)
The "hard problem" in bilingual lexical access arises when translation-equivalent lexical representations are activated to roughly equal levels and, thus, compete equally for lexical selection. The language suppression hypothesis (D. W. Green, 1998) solves this hard problem through the suppression of lexical representations in the nontarget language.… (More)
Emotional and affective processing imposes itself over cognitive processes and modulates our perception of the surrounding environment. In two experiments, we addressed the issue of whether nonconscious processing of affect can take place even under deep states of unawareness, such as those induced by interocular suppression techniques, and can elicit an… (More)
The Enhancing NeuroImaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis (ENIGMA) Consortium is a collaborative network of researchers working together on a range of large-scale studies that integrate data from 70 institutions worldwide. Organized into Working Groups that tackle questions in neuroscience, genetics, and medicine, ENIGMA studies have analyzed neuroimaging… (More)
This article defines the notion of hyperdecidability for a class of finite semigroups, which is closely connected to the notion of decidability. It then proves that the pseudovariety J of J-trivial semigroups is hyperdecidable.
The dorsal visual processing stream subserves object-directed action, whereas the ventral visual processing stream subserves visual object recognition. Little is known about how information computed by dorsal-stream structures influences object recognition. We used continuous flash suppression to functionally separate information computed by the dorsal… (More)
We study free profinite subgroups of free profinite semi-groups of the same rank using, as main tools, iterated implicit operators, subword complexity and the associated entropy.
