Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in macaque monkeys is emerging as a potent candidate to bridge the gap between data from human fMRI studies and data from anatomy, electrophysiology and lesion studies in monkeys. The primary (SI) and secondary (SII) somatosensory cortices are the principal regions for somatosensory information processing and(More)
Functional brain organization of macaque monkeys and humans was directly compared by functional magnetic resonance imaging. Subjects of both species performed a modified Wisconsin Card Sorting Test that required behavioral flexibility in the form of cognitive set shifting. Equivalent visual stimuli and task sequence were used for the two species. We found(More)
Functional organization of human cerebral hemispheres is asymmetrically specialized, most typically along a verbal/nonverbal axis. In this event-related functional MRI study, we report another example of the asymmetrical specialization. Set-shifting paradigms derived from the Wisconsin card sorting test were used, where subjects update one behavior to(More)
Knowledge or experiences are voluntarily recalled from memory by reactivation of their neural representations in the association cortex. Mnemonic representations of visual objects, located in the ventral processing stream of visual perception, provide the best indication of how neuronal codes are created, organized and reactivated. Associative codes are(More)
KEI-Time Traveler is a system using commercially available phones equipped with GPS. It enables students to do fieldwork with a visit to a past environment from the corresponding location in the present world. Students experienced such fieldwork to visit the site of a landslide disaster in 1938. We evaluated the system and found that KEI-Time Traveler(More)
Rapid presentation event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging was applied to macaque monkeys performing a symmetrically rewarded go/no-go task, to investigate neural correlate of response inhibition. Sensorimotor activation related to the task performance was observed predominantly in the hemisphere contralateral to the response forelimb.(More)
Memory retrieval is a process wherein a distributed neural network reactivates the brain's representation of past experiences. Sensory long-term memory is represented among a population of neurones in the modality-specific posterior association cortex. The coded representation of memory can be retrieved by interactions of hierarchically different cortical(More)
