The effect of visual experience on the development of functional architecture in hMT+.
We investigated whether the visual hMT+ cortex plays a role in supramodal representation of sensory flow, not mediated by visual mental imagery. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging toExpand

Differential modulation of neural activity throughout the distributed neural system for face perception in patients with Social Phobia and healthy subjects
Social Phobia (SP) is a marked and persistent fear of social or performance situations in which the person is exposed to unfamiliar people or to possible scrutiny by others. Faces of others areExpand

Effects of Visual Experience on the Human MT+ Functional Connectivity Networks: An fMRI Study of Motion Perception in Sighted and Congenitally Blind Individuals
Human middle temporal complex (hMT+) responds also to the perception of non-visual motion in both sighted and early blind individuals, indicating a supramodal organization. Visual experience,Expand

Biological Effects and Safety in Magnetic Resonance Imaging: A Review
Since the introduction of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a diagnostic technique, the number of people exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF) has increased dramatically. In this review, based onExpand

Is the genotoxic effect of magnetic resonance negligible? Low persistence of micronucleus frequency in lymphocytes of individuals after cardiac scan.
Magnetic resonance imaging is a diagnostic technique widely used in medicine and showing a growing impact in cardiology. Biological effects associated to magnetic resonance electromagnetic fieldsExpand

Proneness to social anxiety modulates neural complexity in the absence of exposure: A resting state fMRI study using Hurst exponent
To test the hypothesis that brain activity is modulated by trait social anxiety, we measured the Hurst Exponent (HE), an index of complexity in time series, in healthy individuals at rest in theExpand

Perception of visual and tactile flow activates common cortical areas in the human brain
We report results of a pilot study using functional magnetic reso- nance imaging aimed at determining the neural correlates of tactile flow. We hypothesized that brain response to tactile flow wouldExpand
