Neurolinguistics: Structural plasticity in the bilingual brain
Humans have a unique ability to learn more than one language — a skill that is thought to be mediated by functional (rather than structural) plastic changes in the brain. Here we show that learning aExpand

Anterior temporal cortex and semantic memory: Reconciling findings from neuropsychology and functional imaging
Studies of semantic impairment arising from brain disease suggest that the anterior temporal lobes are critical for semantic abilities in humans; yet activation of these regions is rarely reported inExpand

Hemispheric asymmetries in language-related pathways: A combined functional MRI and tractography study
We demonstrated consistent connections between Broca's and Wernicke's areas along the superior longitudinal fasciculus bilaterally but more extensive fronto-temporal connectivity on the right. Expand

Language Control in the Bilingual Brain
How does the bilingual brain distinguish and control which language is in use? Previous functional imaging experiments have not been able to answer this question because proficient bilingualsExpand

Distinct Functional Contributions of Primary Sensory and Association Areas to Audiovisual Integration in Object Categorization
Multisensory interactions have been demonstrated in a distributed neural system encompassing primary sensory and higher-order association areas. However, their distinct functional roles inExpand

Structural plasticity in the bilingual brain: Proficiency in a second language and age at acquisition affect grey-matter density.

Cortical Hierarchies Perform Bayesian Causal Inference in Multisensory Perception
To form a veridical percept of the environment, the brain needs to integrate sensory signals from a common source but segregate those from independent sources. Thus, perception inherently relies onExpand

Two distinct neural mechanisms for category-selective responses.
The cognitive and neural mechanisms mediating category-selective responses in the human brain remain controversial. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging and effective connectivity analysesExpand

Practicing a musical instrument is a rich multisensory experience involving the integration of visual, auditory, and tactile inputs with motor responses. This combined psychophysics–fMRI study usedExpand

Superadditive responses in superior temporal sulcus predict audiovisual benefits in object categorization.
Merging information from multiple senses provides a more reliable percept of our environment. Yet, little is known about where and how various sensory features are combined within the corticalExpand
