Human hippocampal pre-activation predicts behavior.

Related Articles Human hippocampal pre-activation predicts behavior. Sci Rep. 2017 07 20;7(1):5959 Authors: Jafarpour A, Piai V, Lin JJ, Knight RT Abstract The response to an upcoming salient event is accelerated when the event is expected given the preceding events – i.e. a temporal context effect. For example, naming a picture following a strongly constraining […]

Systematic comparison between a wireless EEG system with dry electrodes and a wired EEG system with wet electrodes.

Related Articles Systematic comparison between a wireless EEG system with dry electrodes and a wired EEG system with wet electrodes. Neuroimage. 2019 01 01;184:119-129 Authors: Kam JWY, Griffin S, Shen A, Patel S, Hinrichs H, Heinze HJ, Deouell LY, Knight RT Abstract Recent advances in dry electrodes technology have facilitated the recording of EEG in […]

How the inference of hierarchical rules unfolds over time.

How the inference of hierarchical rules unfolds over time. Cognition. 2019 Jan 31;185:151-162 Authors: Eckstein MK, Starr A, Bunge SA Abstract Inductive reasoning, which entails reaching conclusions that are based on but go beyond available evidence, has long been of interest in cognitive science. Nevertheless, knowledge is still lacking as to the specific cognitive processes […]

MRI gradient-echo phase contrast of the brain at ultra-short TE with off-resonance saturation.

Related Articles MRI gradient-echo phase contrast of the brain at ultra-short TE with off-resonance saturation. Neuroimage. 2018 07 15;175:1-11 Authors: Wei H, Cao P, Bischof A, Henry RG, Larson PEZ, Liu C Abstract Larmor-frequency shift or image phase measured by gradient-echo sequences has provided a new source of MRI contrast. This contrast is being used […]

Lateral prefrontal cortex lesion impairs regulation of internally and externally directed attention.

Related Articles Lateral prefrontal cortex lesion impairs regulation of internally and externally directed attention. Neuroimage. 2018 07 15;175:91-99 Authors: Kam JWY, Solbakk AK, Endestad T, Meling TR, Knight RT Abstract Our capacity to flexibly shift between internally and externally directed attention is crucial for successful performance of activities in our daily lives. Neuroimaging studies have […]

Metabolic brain networks in aging and preclinical Alzheimer’s disease.

Related Articles Metabolic brain networks in aging and preclinical Alzheimer’s disease. Neuroimage Clin. 2018;17:987-999 Authors: Arnemann KL, Stöber F, Narayan S, Rabinovici GD, Jagust WJ Abstract Metabolic brain networks can provide insight into the network processes underlying progression from healthy aging to Alzheimer’s disease. We explore the effect of two Alzheimer’s disease risk factors, amyloid-β […]
