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 ...
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 ...
Rapid brain responses independently predict gain maximization and loss minimization during economic decision making.
(J Neurosci, 2013-04-17)
Success in many decision-making scenarios depends on the ability to maximize gains and minimize losses. Even if an agent knows which cues lead to gains and which lead to losses, that agent could still make choices yielding ...
Reward associations reduce behavioral interference by changing the temporal dynamics of conflict processing.
(PLoS One, 2013)
Associating stimuli with the prospect of reward typically facilitates responses to those stimuli due to an enhancement of attentional and cognitive-control processes. Such reward-induced facilitation might be especially ...
