High-field FMRI reveals brain activation patterns underlying saccade execution in the human superior colliculus.
(PloS one, 2010)
BACKGROUND: The superior colliculus (SC) has been shown to play a crucial role in the initiation and coordination of eye- and head-movements. The knowledge about the function of this structure is mainly based on single-unit ...
Computer vision tools for low-cost and noninvasive measurement of autism-related behaviors in infants.
(Autism Res Treat, 2014)
The early detection of developmental disorders is key to child outcome, allowing interventions to be initiated which promote development and improve prognosis. Research on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) suggests that behavioral ...
Imagery and retrieval of auditory and visual information: neural correlates of successful and unsuccessful performance.
Remembering past events - or episodic retrieval - consists of several components. There is evidence that mental imagery plays an important role in retrieval and that the brain regions supporting imagery overlap with those ...
Parents' Incomes and Children's Outcomes: A Quasi-Experiment.
(Am Econ J Appl Econ, 2010-01)
We examine the role that an exogenous increase in household income due to a government transfer unrelated to household characteristics plays in children's long run outcomes. Children in affected households have higher levels ...
Neurophysiological mechanisms of sleep-dependent memory consolidation and its facilitation by prenatal choline supplementation
(Chinese Journal of Physiology – Special issue: Physiology of Behavior, Stress, and Psychopathology, 2009)
Major and minor music compared to excited and subdued speech.
(J Acoust Soc Am, 2010-01)
The affective impact of music arises from a variety of factors, including intensity, tempo, rhythm, and tonal relationships. The emotional coloring evoked by intensity, tempo, and rhythm appears to arise from association ...
Neural activation for actual and imagined movement following unilateral hand transplantation: a case study.
Transplantation of a donor hand has been successful as a surgical treatment following amputation, but little is known regarding the brain mechanisms contributing to the recovery of motor function. We report functional magnetic ...
Automatic word count estimation from daylong child-centered recordings in various language environments using language-independent syllabification of speech
(Speech Communication, 2019-10-01)
© 2019 The Authors Automatic word count estimation (WCE) from audio recordings can be used to quantify the amount of verbal communication in a recording environment. One key application of WCE is to measure language input ...
Point, walk, talk: Links between three early milestones, from observation and parental report.
(Developmental psychology, 2019-08)
Around their first birthdays, infants begin to point, walk, and talk. These abilities are appreciable both by researchers with strictly standardized criteria and caregivers with more relaxed notions of what each of these ...
