Predicting Human Brain Activity Associated with the Meanings of Nouns
The question of how the human brain represents conceptual knowledge has been debated in many scientific fields. Brain imaging studies have shown that different spatial patterns of neural activationExpand

Autism as a neural systems disorder: A theory of frontal-posterior underconnectivity
The underconnectivity theory of autism attributes the disorder to lower anatomical and functional systems connectivity between frontal and more posterior cortical processing. Here we review evidenceExpand

Using fMRI Brain Activation to Identify Cognitive States Associated with Perception of Tools and Dwellings
Previous studies have succeeded in identifying the cognitive state corresponding to the perception of a set of depicted categories, such as tools, by analyzing the accompanying pattern of brainExpand

Commonality of neural representations of words and pictures
TLDR
In this work we explore whether the patterns of brain activity associated with thinking about concrete objects are dependent on stimulus presentation format, whether an object is referred to by a written or pictorial form. Expand

Multi-view kernel construction
TLDR
In many problem domains data may come from multiple sources (or views), such as video and audio from a camera or text on and links to a web page. Expand

Predicting Human Brain Activity Associated with Noun Meanings
Recent brain imaging studies have shown that different spatial patterns of neural activation are associated with thinking about different semantic categories of words and pictures (e.g., tools,Expand

Exploring commonalities across participants in the neural representation of objects
TLDR
The question of whether the neural encodings of objects are similar across different people is one of the key questions in cognitive neuroscience. Expand

Encoding Voxels with Deep Learning
TLDR
Humans achieve fast and accurate recognition of complex objects through the ventral visual stream, a system of interconnected brain regions capable of hierarchical processing of increasingly complex features. Expand

Extracting Human Face Similarity Judgments: Pairs or Triplets?
TLDR
An information-theoretic framework for quantifying how repetitions within and across subjects can help to combat noise in human responses, as well as giving some insight into the nature of similarity representation. Expand

Graphical models for functional connectivity
A lack of functional integration has been proposed as a signature of many degenerative and developmental disorders, including schizophrenia and autism (Just et al., 2004). These connectivity patternsExpand
