Neural Mechanisms Underlying the Computation of Hierarchical Tree Structures in Mathematics
Whether mathematical and linguistic processes share the same neural mechanisms has been a matter of controversy. By examining various sentence structures, we recently demonstrated that activations inExpand

Individual variability in verbal fluency correlates with &ggr;-aminobutyric acid concentration in the left inferior frontal gyrus
A particular feature of the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG), which is considered a central region for language processing, is leftward functional/anatomical asymmetry. However, previous studies have notExpand

Neural Evidence of Cross-domain Structural Interaction between Language and Arithmetic
TLDR
The presence of a shared neural system for the syntactic processing in language and arithmetic is controversial. Expand

Distinct dimensions of emotion in the human brain and their representation on the cortical surface
We experience a rich variety of emotions in daily life, and a fundamental goal of affective neuroscience is to determine how these emotions are represented in the brain. Recent psychological studiesExpand

Quantitative models reveal the organization of diverse cognitive functions in the brain
TLDR
The authors construct quantitative models of human brain activity evoked by 103 cognitive tasks and reveal the organization of diverse cognitive functions in the brain. Expand

Encoding and Decoding of Music-Genre Representations in the Human Brain
TLDR
Music-genre recognition (MGR) has been a central issue in understanding human preferences of music. Expand

Distinct dimensions of emotion in the human brain and their representation on the cortical surface
TLDR
We used functional MRI to measure blood-oxygen-level-dependent responses when human subjects watched 3-h emotion-inducing movies labelled with 10,800 ratings regarding each of 80 emotion categories. Expand

Regulation of action selection based on metacognition in humans via a ventral and dorsal medial prefrontal cortical network
Metacognition is defined as cognition about one's own cognitive state; it enables us to estimate our own performance during goal-directed actions and to select a suitable strategy based on thatExpand

Convergence of modality invariance and attention selectivity in the cortical semantic circuit
The human linguistic system is characterized by modality invariance and attention selectivity. Previous studies have examined these properties independently and reported perisylvian regionExpand

Cortical collateralization induced by language and arithmetic in non-right-handers
The functional overlap of language and arithmetic is debatable. Although some studies have reported independent representations of arithmetic and language in the brain, other studies have reportedExpand
