Neural correlates of metaphor processing.
Metaphoric language is used to express meaning that is otherwise difficult to conceptualize elegantly. Beyond semantic analysis, understanding the figurative meaning of a metaphor requires mentalExpand

Towards a functional neuroanatomy of self processing: effects of faces and words.
We studied the neural correlates of self vs. non-self judgements using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Individually tailored faces and personality trait words were used as stimuli inExpand

Hippocampal activation in patients with mild cognitive impairment is necessary for successful memory encoding
Background: Episodic memory enables us to consciously recollect personally experienced past events. Memory performance is reduced in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), an at-riskExpand

Neural correlates of metaphor processing in schizophrenia
We investigated processing of metaphoric sentences with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in 12 patients with schizophrenia and 12 control subjects. Expand

Heterogeneity of the Left Temporal Lobe in Semantic Representation and Control: Priming Multiple versus Single Meanings of Ambiguous Words
Semantic judgments involve both representations of meaning plus executive mechanisms that guide knowledge retrieval in a task-appropriate way. These 2 components of semantic cognition—representationExpand

The neural correlates of perceiving one's own movements
Feedforward mechanisms are important for movement control. They may also contribute to the identification of self-produced actions by attenuating the sensory consequences of self-produced movements.Expand

Neural contributions to flow experience during video game playing.
Video games are an exciting part of new media. Although game play has been intensively studied, the underlying neurobiology is still poorly understood. Flow theory is a well-established modelExpand

Reversed lateralization of temporal activation during speech production in thought disordered patients with schizophrenia.
BACKGROUND Formal thought disorder is a core symptom of schizophrenia. It is associated with a reversed lateralization of the superior temporal cortex volume, an area that is implicated in lexicalExpand

Laterality in metaphor processing: Lack of evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging for the right hemisphere theory
We investigated processing of metaphoric sentences using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Seventeen healthy subjects (6 female, 11 male) read 60 novel short German sentenceExpand

Supramodal Representation of Emotions
Supramodal representation of emotion and its neural substrates have recently attracted attention as a marker of social cognition. However, the question whether perceptual integration of facial andExpand
