Previous neuroimaging studies of spatial perspective taking have tended not to activate the brain's mentalising network. We predicted that a task that requires the use of perspective taking in a communicative context would lead to the activation of mentalising regions. In the current task, participants followed auditory instructions to move objects in a set(More)
High-speed filming is one of the most informative methods for assessing voice physiology data. Tracing high-speed images of the glottis provides quantitative parameters such as the glottal area and the glottal width function. By way of example, a number of studies are discussed which extract quantitative data from high-speed images showing voice onsets.(More)
Process-based cognitive trainings (PCTs) and novelty interventions are two traditional approaches aiming to prevent cognitive decline and dementia. However, both have their limitations. PCTs improve performance only in cognitive tests similar to the training tasks with inconsistent transfer effects on dissimilar tests. We argue that this learning(More)
Individuals with higher cognitive reserve are more able to cope with pathological brain alterations, potentially due to the application of more efficient cognitive strategies. The extent to which an individual's cognitive performance can be increased by advantageous conditions differs substantially between patients with Alzheimer's dementia (AD) and healthy(More)
Vocal fold vibration patterns during phonation are presented with different digital imaging systems. With newly developed technical equipment color images up to 1000 digital images/s were obtained without light intensifying enhancement techniques via rigid and flexible endoscopy. With this color high-speed system, morphologic structures, such as small blood(More)
Twenty-one patients with congenital deformities of the petrous bones were examined by high resolution computed tomography. This allows an accurate description of the extent of the malformation in all parts of the cochlear and vestibular organs; only localised changes in the auditory ossicles, such as fixation of the stapes and changes in the soft tissue(More)
High-resolution CT enables exact visualisation of the bony structures of the petrous bone; at the same time, all relevant nerval, vascular and muscular elements of the middle and inner ear are visualised. A wider range of findings can be attained in this region of wide differences in density than via conventional pluridirectional tomography. The normal(More)
