Brain changes after learning to read and play music
TLDR
We tested the hypothesis that music reading involves a sensorimotor translation of a spatial code (written music) into a series of motor responses (keypresses). Expand

Idiosyncratic responding during movie-watching predicted by age differences in attentional control
Much is known about how age affects the brain during tightly controlled, though largely contrived, experiments, but do these effects extrapolate to everyday life? Naturalistic stimuli, such asExpand

Comparing event-related and epoch analysis in blocked design fMRI
TLDR
In this study we demonstrate that, even in blocked design fMRI, an event-related analysis may provide a more accurate model of the hemodynamic responses than an epoch- related analysis. Expand

Estimating efficiency a priori: a comparison of blocked and randomized designs
TLDR
This technical note deals with a priori estimation of efficiency of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) designs, which can change with the experimental design. Expand

Lifestyle activities in mid-life contribute to cognitive reserve in late-life, independent of education, occupation, and late-life activities
This study tested the hypothesis that mid-life intellectual, physical, and social activities contribute to cognitive reserve (CR). Two hundred five individuals (196 with magnetic resonance imaging)Expand

. Comparing a Single Patient versus a Group of Controls (and Spm)
1.1 Z-scores versus one-sample T-tests If we knew the mean, µ , and standard deviation, σ , of the control "population", we could construct the "Z-score": σ µ p Z − = where p is the single patientExpand

Becoming a Pianist
Abstract: Musically naïve subjects were scanned using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) before and after they had been taught to read music and play keyboard. When subjects played melodiesExpand

Pharmacological modulation of behavioural and neuronal correlates of repetition priming
In this experiment we address the pharmacological modulation of repetition priming, a basic form of learning, using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging. We measured brain activity inExpand
