Commonality of neural representations of sentences across languages: predicting brain activation during Portuguese sentence comprehension using an English-based model of brain function Neuroimage (2016)
The aim of the study was to test the cross-language generative capability of a model that predicts neural activation patterns evoked by sentence reading, based on a semantic characterization of the sentence. In a previous ...
Monitoring the growth of the neural representations of new animal concepts Human Brain Mapping (2015)
Although enormous progress has recently been made in identifying the neural representations of individual object concepts, relatively little is known about the growth of a neural knowledge representation as a novel object concept is being ...
Structural and functional neuroplasticity in human learning of spatial routes NeuroImage (2016)
Recent findings with both animals and humans suggest that decreases in microscopic movements of water in the hippocampus reflect short-term neuroplasticity resulting from learning. Here we examine whether such neuroplastic structural changes concurrently alter the ...
Diminished neural adaptation during implicit learning in autism NeuroImage (2016)
Neuroimaging studies have shown evidence of disrupted neural adaptation during learning in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in several types of tasks, potentially stemming from frontal-posterior cortical underconnectivity (Schipul et al., 2012). The aim ...
Aberrant functioning of the Theory-of-Mind network in children and adolescents with autism. Molecular Autism (2015)
Background: Theory-of-Mind (ToM), the ability to infer people’s thoughts and feelings, is a pivotal skill in effective social interactions. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have been found to have altered ToM skills, which significantly ...
