Real-Time Parallel Processing of Grammatical Structure in the Fronto-Striatal System: A Recurrent Network Simulation Study Using Reservoir Computing
Sentence processing takes place in real-time. Previous words in the sentence can influence the processing of the current word in the timescale of hundreds of milliseconds. Recent neurophysiologicalExpand

Motor imagery of a lateralized sequential task is asymmetrically slowed in hemi-Parkinson's patients
We examined seven right-handed, asymmetrical (right side affected) Parkinson's disease patients and seven age-matched controls in a manual finger sequencing test using left and right hands in vision,Expand

Complex sensory-motor sequence learning based on recurrent state representation and reinforcement learning
A novel neural network model is presented that learns by trial-and-error to reproduce complex sensory-motor sequences. One subnetwork, corresponding to the prefrontal cortex (PFC), is responsible forExpand

Neural network processing of natural language: I. Sensitivity to serial, temporal and abstract structure of language in the infant
Well before their first birthday, babies can acquire knowledge of serial order relations (Saffran et al., 1996a), as well as knowledge of more abstract rule-based structural relations (Marcus et al.,Expand

Neurological basis of language and sequential cognition: Evidence from simulation, aphasia, and ERP studies
The current research addresses the hypothesis that certain aspects of sequential cognition have made substantial contributions to the human language processing capability, from a functionalExpand

I Reach Faster When I See You Look: Gaze Effects in Human–Human and Human–Robot Face-to-Face Cooperation
Human-human interaction in natural environments relies on a variety of perceptual cues. Humanoid robots are becoming increasingly refined in their sensorimotor capabilities, and thus should now beExpand

Effects of subthalamic nucleus stimulation on actual and imagined movement in Parkinson's disease : a PET study
Abstract.Background: PET studies in moderately affected Parkinson's disease (PD) patients reveal abnormal cerebral activation during motor execution and imagery, but the effects of subthalamicExpand

A cortico-subcortical model for generation of spatially accurate sequential saccades.
This article provides a systems framework for the analysis of cortical and subcortical interactions in the control of saccadic eye movements, A major thesis of this model is that a topography ofExpand

Motor imagery in normal subjects and in asymmetrical Parkinson’s disease
Objective: To investigate, using PET and H215O, brain activation abnormalities of patients with PD during motor imagery. To determine whether motor imagery activation patterns depend on the hand usedExpand

Indeterminacy in language acquisition: the role of child directed speech and joint attention
Abstract Language acquisition represents one of the great learning achievements in human cognitive development. Perhaps, this process takes place in a relatively automatic manner in which, simplyExpand
