Clustered functional MRI of overt speech production
TLDR
To investigate the neural network of overt speech production, event-related fMRI was performed in 9 young healthy adult volunteers and depicted depiction of the articulo-phonologic network of speech production from the supplementary motor area at the cranial end to the red nucleus at the caudal end. Expand
Cardiovascular and neurological causes of sudden death after ischaemic stroke
TLDR
Experimental and clinical evidence suggests that autonomic imbalance is more frequent after infarcts involving the insular cortex, a crucial region for the control of sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic functions. Expand
Naming actions and objects: cortical dynamics in healthy adults and in an anomic patient with a dissociation in action/object naming
TLDR
A clear dissociation in cortical correlates of verb and noun retrieval only became evident in the anomic patient, in whom damage to the language network has resulted in disproportionately worse performance in object than action naming. Expand
Auditory temporal processing in healthy aging: a magnetoencephalographic study
TLDR
Significantly larger amplitudes of the P1m and N1m waves suggest that the cortical processing of individual sounds differs between younger and older individuals, adding to the growing evidence that brain functions, such as sensory processing, motor control and cognitive processing, can change during healthy aging. Expand
Antihypertensive treatment can prevent stroke and cognitive decline
TLDR
It is argued that, in patients of all ages, not treating hypertension is a missed opportunity to prevent some of the most prevalent brain diseases. Expand
Phantom eye syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that pain is an important cofactor for the development of phantom eye phenomena and headaches and preoperative eye pain were associated with the presence of phantom experiences. Expand
Neuroimaging evidence for cortical involvement in the preparation and in the act of swallowing
TLDR
A left hemispheric dominance for the cortical control of swallowing in humans is suggested by the cortical topography of the preparation and the execution of volitional and reflexive water swallowing and of a simple tongue movement. Expand
Motor, somatosensory and auditory cortex localization by fMRI and MEG
TLDR
The mean distances measured between fMRI activity and the corresponding MEG dipoles may reflect the correlation between electrophysiological and hemodynamic responses due to the different underlying substrates of neurophysiology measured by fMRI and MEG: BOLD contrast vs neuronal biomagnetic activity. Expand
Functional MRI of working memory and selective attention in vibrotactile frequency discrimination
TLDR
These results support the notion that working memory and attention are organised in partly overlapping neural circuits and emphasises the involvement of the anterior insula in vibrotactileWorking memory and selective attention. Expand
The Senses of Agency and Ownership: A Review
TLDR
This review introduces both concepts, with a special focus also onto their interplay, and current experimental paradigms, results and neurocognitive theories about both concepts will be presented. Expand
