Activity of Midbrain Reticular Formation and Neocortex during the Progression of Human Non-Rapid Eye Movement Sleep
To clarify the neural correlates and brain activity during the progression of human non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, we examined the absolute regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) during light andExpand

A case of foreign accent syndrome without aphasia caused by a lesion of the left precentral gyrus
We report a case of foreign accent syndrome (FAS) without aphasia. The patient was a right-handed, 44-year-old woman, a native Japanese. Disposition and inversion of pitch accents and appearance ofExpand

Hemispheric asymmetry emerges at distinct parts of the occipitotemporal cortex for objects, logograms and phonograms: A functional MRI study
Behavioral and neuropsychological studies have suggested that the right hemisphere has a special advantage in the visual recognition of logograms. While this long-standing 'right hemisphereExpand

Functional Coupling of Human Prefrontal and Premotor Areas during Cognitive Manipulation
Evidence indicates the involvement of the rostral part of the dorsal premotor cortex (pre-PMd) in executive processes during working memory tasks. However, it remains unclear what the executiveExpand

Task-Guided Selection of the Dual Neural Pathways for Reading
The visual perception of words is known to activate the auditory representation of their spoken forms automatically. We examined the neural mechanism for this phonological activation usingExpand

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during mental writing with phonograms.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at 1.5 T using a gradient echo echo-planar sequence was employed to identify brain regions activated during the performance of a mental writing task usingExpand

Significant liver injury with dual positive IgM antibody to Epstein-Barr virus and cytomegalovirus as a puzzling initial manifestation of infectious mononucleosis.
A 35-year-old man was admitted because of significant hepatic dysfunction with mild splenomegaly and intra-abdominal lymphadenopathy of unknown cause. Infectious mononucleosis was suggested byExpand

A case of cortical deafness and anarthria
Generally, cortical deafness is not complicated by anarthria and cortical anarthria does not affect auditory perception. We report a case of simultaneous progressive cortical deafness and anarthria.Expand

Selective Impairment of the Auditory-Verbal Short-Term Memory due to a Lesion of the Superior Temporal Gyrus
115 tion: an increase in its volume and slowing down of its circulation that can lead to subdural effusions or hematomas due to extravasation from the dilated venous system [1, 2]. The presence ofExpand
