Functional Organization of the Human First and Second Somatosensory Cortices: a Neuromagnetic Study
Multichannel neuromagnetic recordings were used to differentiate signals from the human first (SI) and second (SII) somatosensory cortices and to define representations of body surface in them. TheExpand
Large-scale brain networks emerge from dynamic processing of musical timbre, key and rhythm
The large-scale cognitive, motor and limbic brain circuitry dedicated to acoustic feature processing during listening to a naturalistic musical stimulus is revealed by combining neuroimaging, acoustic feature extraction and behavioral methods. Expand
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Phase Synchronization as a Measure of Dynamic Functional Connectivity
It is shown that it is possible to increase temporal resolution by using instantaneous phase synchronization (PS) as a measure of dynamic (time-varying) functional connectivity, and these metrics can be applied both in studies with complex naturalistic stimuli and more controlled paradigms. Expand
Face-selective processing in human extrastriate cortex around 120 ms after stimulus onset revealed by magneto- and electroencephalography
It is concluded that under sufficiently good conditions face-selective activity may be taking place during the P120, which is the peak latency and amplitude of the early 120-ms component of the MEG component for the inverted faces. Expand
The Human Auditory Sensory Memory Trace Persists about 10 sec: Neuromagnetic Evidence
A behavioral estimate of the persistence of the sensory auditory memory was obtained and the ISI dependence of the behavioral estimate as well as of N100m2 and MMF are similar enough to suggest a common underlying mechanism that retains information for a period of about 10 sec. Expand
Musicians have enhanced subcortical auditory and audiovisual processing of speech and music
Watching videos of speech and music enhanced temporal and frequency encoding in the auditory brainstem, particularly in musicians, demonstrating practice-related changes in the early sensory encoding of auditory and audiovisual information. Expand
Emotions promote social interaction by synchronizing brain activity across individuals
It is proposed that negative valence synchronizes individuals' brain areas supporting emotional sensations and understanding of another’s actions, whereas high arousal directs individuals’ attention to similar features of the environment. Expand
Seeing speech: visual information from lip movements modifies activity in the human auditory cortex
The results show that visual information from articulatory movements has an entry into the auditory cortex, which could be explained by activity in the supratemporal auditory cortex. Expand
Auditory frequency discrimination and event-related potentials.
The present results are in line with the hypothesis according to which the MMN component reflects the activation of cerebral mechanisms of passive discrimination, those which cause us to become aware of occasional changes in unattended stimulus sequences. Expand
Dynamics of brain activation during picture naming
This static view into the dynamics of cortical activation is expanded using the accurate spatio-temporal resolution of whole-head magnetoencephalography to show that during picture naming, the conversion from visual to symbolic representation progressed bilaterally from the occipital visual cortex towards temporal and frontal lobes.
