Most functional imaging data are collected in single session experiments; little is known about the reproducibility or test-retest reliability of the activation patterns found in these experiments. In our study, 15 healthy volunteers performed four simple motor-paradigms ("Hand", "Foot", "Mouth" and "Tongue") for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Functional MR imaging (fMRI) is rapidly evolving and claims to complement or even substitute intraoperative mapping (IOM) of language functions. However, little is known about the reproducibility of imaging data in the language domain. The aim of our study was to assess the reproducibility of activations for 2 widely used paradigms:(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the sensitivity and reliability of assessing hemispheric language dominance with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) using a ‘free reversed association task.’ Thirty-nine healthy subjects (13 dextrals, 13 sinistrals and 13 bimanuals) underwent two repeated fMRI sessions. In the active phases sets of words were(More)
Semantically bounded disorders of verbal processing that result in selective dysnomias for items belonging to specific semantic categories have been well documented in lesion studies. Most commonly dissociations between the categories of living versus non-living things have been reported. Processing of living things such as animals seems to be impaired(More)
Available online xxxx Research shows that family firms are less entrepreneurial, on average, especially after the founder departs. There are notable exceptions, however, and sowe build a new theory to explain how these exceptional firms accomplish transgenerational entrepreneurship. Specifically, we conducted indepth interviews with owners and (potential)(More)
