Genetic mapping of brain plasticity across development in Williams syndrome: ERP markers of face and language processing.
(Dev Neuropsychol, 2013)
In Williams Syndrome (WS), a known genetic deletion results in atypical brain function with strengths in face and language processing. We examined how genetic influences on brain activity change with development. In three ...
Differential developmental trajectories of magnetic susceptibility in human brain gray and white matter over the lifespan.
(Hum Brain Mapp, 2014-06)
As indicated by several recent studies, magnetic susceptibility of the brain is influenced mainly by myelin in the white matter and by iron deposits in the deep nuclei. Myelination and iron deposition in the brain evolve ...
Convergent transcriptional specializations in the brains of humans and song-learning birds.
Song-learning birds and humans share independently evolved similarities in brain pathways for vocal learning that are essential for song and speech and are not found in most other species. Comparisons of brain transcriptomes ...
Scan-rescan reliability of subcortical brain volumes derived from automated segmentation.
(Hum Brain Mapp, 2010-11)
Large-scale longitudinal studies of regional brain volume require reliable quantification using automated segmentation and labeling. However, repeated MR scanning of the same subject, even if using the same scanner ...
Improvement in visual search with practice: mapping learning-related changes in neurocognitive stages of processing.
(J Neurosci, 2015-04-01)
Practice can improve performance on visual search tasks; the neural mechanisms underlying such improvements, however, are not clear. Response time typically shortens with practice, but which components of the stimulus-response ...
Trauma re-experiencing symptoms modulate topology of intrinsic functional networks.
(Biol Psychiatry, 2015-08-01)
Cortical Brain Activity Reflecting Attentional Biasing Toward Reward-Predicting Cues Covaries with Economic Decision-Making Performance.
(Cereb Cortex, 2016-01)
Adaptive choice behavior depends critically on identifying and learning from outcome-predicting cues. We hypothesized that attention may be preferentially directed toward certain outcome-predicting cues. We studied this ...
The influence of different Stop-signal response time estimation procedures on behavior-behavior and brain-behavior correlations.
(Behav Brain Res, 2012-04-01)
The fundamental cognitive-control function of inhibitory control over motor behavior has been extensively investigated using the Stop-signal task. The critical behavioral parameter describing stopping efficacy is the Stop-signal ...
Effects of chronic mild traumatic brain injury on white matter integrity in Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.
(Hum Brain Mapp, 2013-11)
Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common source of morbidity from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With no overt lesions on structural MRI, diagnosis of chronic mild TBI in military veterans relies on obtaining an ...
The spatiotemporal dynamics of autobiographical memory: neural correlates of recall, emotional intensity, and reliving.
(Cereb Cortex, 2008-01)
We sought to map the time course of autobiographical memory retrieval, including brain regions that mediate phenomenological experiences of reliving and emotional intensity. Participants recalled personal memories to auditory ...
