An Effect of Bilingualism on the Auditory Cortex
Two studies (Golestani et al., 2007; Wong et al., 2008) have reported a positive correlation between the ability to perceive foreign speech sounds and the volume of Heschl's gyrus (HG), the structureExpand

Reduced striatal volume in cocaine-dependent patients
TLDR
We show that cocaine dependence is associated with reduced gray matter volumes in the striatum and right supramarginal gyrus compared to controls. Expand

Reading salt activates gustatory brain regions: fMRI evidence for semantic grounding in a novel sensory modality.
Because many words are typically used in the context of their referent objects and actions, distributed cortical circuits for these words may bind information about their form with perceptual andExpand

Abstinence duration modulates striatal functioning during monetary reward processing in cocaine patients
Pre‐clinical and clinical studies in cocaine addiction highlight alterations in the striatal dopaminergic reward system that subserve maintenance of cocaine use. Using an instrumental conditioningExpand

Bilingualism at the core of the brain. Structural differences between bilinguals and monolinguals revealed by subcortical shape analysis
TLDR
We performed a subcortical surface-based analysis in a sample of monolinguals and simultaneous bilinguals (N=88) that only differed in their language experience from birth. Expand

Top-down attention regulates the neural expression of audiovisual integration
TLDR
The interplay between attention and multisensory integration has proven to be a difficult question to tackle. Expand

Lower activation in the right frontoparietal network during a counting Stroop task in a cocaine-dependent group
Dysregulation in cognitive control networks may mediate core characteristics of drug addiction. Cocaine dependence has been particularly associated with low activation in the frontoparietal regionsExpand

Spontaneous Brain Activity Predicts Learning Ability of Foreign Sounds
Can learning capacity of the human brain be predicted from initial spontaneous functional connectivity (FC) between brain areas involved in a task? We combined task-related functional magneticExpand

Bilinguals Use Language-Control Brain Areas More Than Monolinguals to Perform Non-Linguistic Switching Tasks
We tested the hypothesis that early bilinguals use language-control brain areas more than monolinguals when performing non-linguistic executive control tasks. We do so by exploring the brain activityExpand

State and Training Effects of Mindfulness Meditation on Brain Networks Reflect Neuronal Mechanisms of Its Antidepressant Effect
The topic of investigating how mindfulness meditation training can have antidepressant effects via plastic changes in both resting state and meditation state brain activity is important in theExpand
