The number of studies examining visual perspective during retrieval has recently grown. However, the way in which perspective has been conceptualized differs across studies. Some studies have suggested perspective is experienced ...
The temporal dynamics of implicit processing of non-letter, letter, and word-forms in the human visual cortex.
(Frontiers in human neuroscience, 2009-01)
The decoding of visually presented line segments into letters, and letters into words, is critical to fluent reading abilities. Here we investigate the temporal dynamics of visual orthographic processes, focusing specifically ...

Resolving response, decision, and strategic control: evidence for a functional topography in dorsomedial prefrontal cortex.
(J Neurosci, 2009-10-21)
The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMPFC) plays a central role in aspects of cognitive control and decision making. Here, we provide evidence for an anterior-to-posterior topography within the DMPFC using tasks that evoke ...
A comparison of dimensional models of emotion: evidence from emotions, prototypical events, autobiographical memories, and words.
The intensity and valence of 30 emotion terms, 30 events typical of those emotions, and 30 autobiographical memories cued by those emotions were each rated by different groups of 40 undergraduates. A vector model gave a ...
