Afferent speech therapy system - assessment study of a multi-modal speech therapy device / vorgelegt von Anna-Maria Wilhelm
This thesis is an introduction to and evaluation pilot study of a newly developed method for speech therapy, Project ASTS (Afferent speech therapy system), which was developed in a collaborationExpand
Emotional Picture and Word Processing: An fMRI Study on Effects of Stimulus Complexity
It is suggested that both pictures and words elicit emotional responses with no general superiority for either stimulus modality, while emotional responses to pictures are modulated by perceptual stimulus features, such as picture complexity. Expand

How What We See and What We Know Influence Iconic Gesture Production
The results show that speakers produced more gestures when they attended to a picture, and the effects of object manipulability on the type of gestures produced by speakers were revealed and, in general, it highlighted a predominance of molding and handling gestures. Expand
Individual differences in emotion processing: how similar are diffusion model parameters across tasks?
Results showed that emotion effects of the tasks differed with a processing advantage for happy followed by neutral and fear-related words in the lexical decision task and aprocessing advantage for neutral followed by happy and fearful faces in the gender categorization task. Expand
Neural processing of negative emotional stimuli and the influence of age, sex and task-related characteristics
This work uses activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analysis and replicator dynamics to investigate the processing of negative visual stimuli in healthy adults and endorse the central role of the amygdala, with the amygdala showing comparable engagement across different sexes, stimulus types, and task instructions.

Words speak louder than pictures for action concepts: an eyetracking investigation of the picture superiority effect in semantic categorisation
ABSTRACT An evolving consensus holds that actions and objects are supported by at least partially distinct neurocognitive substrates. In addition, representational modality (e.g. pictures vs. words)Expand

A neural basis for lexical retrieval
Two parallel studies using positron emission tomography indicate that the normal process of retrieving words that denote concrete entities depends in part on multiple regions of the left cerebral hemisphere, located outside the classic language areas. Expand
Functional anatomy of a common semantic system for words and pictures
This study studied the functional anatomy of semantic processing by using positron-emission tomography to contrast activity during two semantic tasks (probing knowledge of associations between concepts, and knowledge of the visual attributes of these concepts), performed either with words or with pictures. Expand
Neural correlates of category-specific knowledge
It is found that naming pictures of animals and tools was associated with bilateral activation of the ventral temporal lobes and Broca's area, and the brain regions active during object identification are dependent, in part, on the intrinsic properties of the object presented. Expand
The multiple semantics hypothesis: Multiple confusions?
Abstract In this paper we discuss the issue of multiple versus unitary semantics. We argue that the notion of multiple semantics (as currently articulated) does not, in fact, represent a theory ofExpand
Preserved object recognition and reading comprehension in optic aphasia.
It is suggested that this patient's preserved object recognition and reading comprehension was mediated by a semantic system supported by the right hemisphere, and this visual modality-specific naming impairment may not be attributable to impaired visual recognition. Expand
Semantic systems or system? Neuropsychological evidence re-examined
Abstract In this paper we consider whether our stored conceptual knowledge about stimuli is represented within a single semantic system which is indifferent to the modality of stimulus presentation,Expand

Evidence is reported showing that a verbal impairment specific to visually presented objects can be observed, as well as analogous syndromes (e.g. tactile aphasia) and three hypotheses concerning the operation of the semantic system in normal subjects are derived from the evidence coming from this syndrome.

Dissociation of algorithmic and heuristic processes in language comprehension: Evidence from aphasia
A neuropsychological dissociation of heuristic and algorithmic processes based primarily, though not exclusively, on semantic and syntactic information, respectively is supported. Expand
