Hemispheric asymmetries in cortical thickness.
Using magnetic resonance imaging and computational cortical pattern matching methods, we analyzed hemispheric differences in regional gray matter thickness across the lateral and medial cortices inExpand

Gender effects on cortical thickness and the influence of scaling
Using magnetic resonance imaging and well‐validated computational cortical pattern matching methods in a large and well‐matched sample of healthy subjects (n = 60), we analyzed the regionalExpand

Gender differences in cortical complexity
Cortical complexity, a measure that quantifies the spatial frequency of gyrification and fissuration of the brain surface, has not been thoroughly characterized with respect to gender differences inExpand

A network for audio–motor coordination in skilled pianists and non-musicians
Playing a musical instrument requires efficient auditory and motor processing. Fast feed forward and feedback connections that link the acoustic target to the corresponding motor programs need to beExpand

Direct current induced short-term modulation of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex while learning auditory presented nouns
BackgroundLittle is known about the contribution of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to the exploration of memory functions. The aim of the present study was to examine the behaviouralExpand

Relationships between sulcal asymmetries and corpus callosum size: gender and handedness effects.
Magnetic resonance imaging was used to establish the presence and nature of relationships between sulcal asymmetries and mid-sagittal callosal size in neurologically intact subjects, and to determineExpand

Category Processing and the human likeness dimension of the Uncanny Valley Hypothesis: Eye-Tracking Data
The Uncanny Valley Hypothesis (Mori, 1970) predicts that perceptual difficulty distinguishing between a humanlike object (e.g., lifelike prosthetic hand, mannequin) and its human counterpart evokesExpand

ERP differences of pre-lexical processing between dyslexic and non-dyslexic children.
The present Event-Related Potential (ERP) study aimed to investigate group differences in the early processing stages of 36 dyslexic and 24 non-dyslexic 8-12 year old children performing a lexicalExpand

Perceptual discrimination difficulty and familiarity in the Uncanny Valley: more like a “Happy Valley”
The Uncanny Valley Hypothesis (UVH) predicts that greater difficulty perceptually discriminating between categorically ambiguous human and humanlike characters (e.g., highly realistic robot) evokesExpand

Parasagittal asymmetries of the corpus callosum.
Significant relationships have been reported between midsagittal areas of the corpus callosum and the degree of interhemispheric transfer, functional lateralization and structural brain asymmetries.Expand
