AIM We went through a critical review of the current status of neuroimaging studies of cognition. Thus, we argue why the use of a neuronal network perspective could led us to a better understanding of cognition than a localizationism perspective. METHOD The question about how cognitive functions are organized in the brain, comes from the very early lesions studies. Electrocortical stimulation and the intracorotid amytal procedure collaborate together with lesions studies to increase the… 

Mind maps in service of the mental brain activity Summary

Tony Buzan is the creator of the mind maps who based his mnemonic techniques of brain mapping on the terms of awareness and wide brain functionality as well as on the ability of memorizing, reading

The emergent coordination of cognitive function.

Intrinsic fluctuations exhibited 1/f scaling in both reaction times and key-contact durations, yet the 2 measures were uncorrelated with each other and separately perturbable.

The Neuropsychology of Cluster Headache: Cognition, Mood, Disability, and Quality of Life of Patients With Chronic and Episodic Cluster Headache

There is little comprehensive evidence of the impact of cluster headache on quality of life, disability, mood, and cognitive function in both its episodic (ECH) and chronic (CCH) variants.

Neuropsicología de la percepción y la expresión facial de emociones: Estudios con niños y primates no humanos

Este estudio revisa diferentes investigaciones sobre la neuropsicologia de la percepcion y la expresion facial de emociones en ninos y en primates no humanos. Se parte de las teorias neodarwinianas



Frontal lobes and human memory: insights from functional neuroimaging.

It is predicted that the resolution of questions concerning the functional neuroanatomical subdivisions of the frontal cortex will ultimately depend on a fuller cognitive psychological fractionation of memory control processes, an enterprise that will be guided and tested by experimentation.

Handbook of functional neuroimaging of cognition

This essential resource on neuroimaging provides an accessible and user-friendly introduction to the field written by leading researchers, and is ideal for classroom use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in cognitive neuroscience.

Functional Neuroimaging and Neuropsychology: Convergence, Advances and New Directions

Functional neuroimaging has revolutionized the neuropsychological study of brain-mind function and dysfunction. With the advent of positron emission tomography (PET) in the 1980s and functional

Spatio-temporal patterns of brain magnetic activity during a memory task in Alzheimer's disease

The results suggest that a high information load reveals a deficient functioning of phonological store and reduced task-related activity in temporal and parietal areas, manifesting in a rapid information trace decay.

Decision-making processes following damage to the prefrontal cortex.

Investigation of cognitive deficits following damage to different sectors of the human prefrontal cortex found that ventral and dorsal aspects of prefrontal cortex must interact in the maintenance of rational and 'non-risky' decision making.

Mapping of receptive language cortex in bilingual volunteers by using magnetic source imaging.

Differences in the location and extent of receptive language cortex specific to English and Spanish in neurologically intact bilingual volunteers by using magnetic source imaging have practical implications for the surgical management of patients with lesions in the temporal and parietal regions of the dominant hemisphere.

Is working memory still working?

Hitch's multicomponent working memory model has proved valuable in accounting for data from a wide range of participant groups under a rich array of task conditions and on the processes allowing the integration of information from the component subsystems.


It is concluded that the anterior hippocampus and hippocampal gyrus, either separately or together, are critically concerned in the retention of current experience.
