      Contextual priors do not modulate action prediction in children with autism 

      Amoruso, Lucia; Narzisi, Antonio; Pinzino, Martina; Finisguerra, Alessandra; Billeci, Lucia; Calderoni, Sara; Fabbro, Franco; Muratori, Filippo; Volzone, Anna; Urgesi, Cosimo (Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 2019)
      Bayesian accounts of autism suggest that this disorder may be rooted in an impaired ability to estimate the probability of future events, possibly owing to reduced priors. Here, we tested this hypothesis within the action ...

      Contextualizing action observation in the predictive brain: Causal contributions of prefrontal and middle temporal areas 

      Amoruso, Lucia; Finisguerra, Alessandra; Urgesi, Cosimo (NeuroImage, 2018)
      Context facilitates the recognition of forthcoming actions by pointing to which intention is likely to drive them. This intention is thought to be estimated in a ventral pathway linking MTG with frontal regions and to ...

      Contrasting functional imaging parametric maps: The mislocation problem and alternative solutions 

      Bourguignon, Mathieu; Molinaro, Nicola; Wens, Vincent (NeuroImage, 2018)
      In the field of neuroimaging, researchers often resort to contrasting parametric maps to identify differences between conditions or populations. Unfortunately, contrast patterns mix effects related to amplitude and ...

      Converging evidence for functional and structural segregation within the left ventral occipitotemporal cortex in reading 

      Lerma-Usabiaga, Garikoitz; Carreiras, Manuel; Paz-Alonso, Pedro M. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), 2018)
      The ventral occipitotemporal cortex (vOTC) is crucial for recognizing visual patterns, and previous evidence suggests that there may be different subregions within the vOTC involved in the rapid identification of word ...

      Correction of Fat-Water Swaps in Dixon MRI 

      Glocker, Ben; Konukoglu, Ender; Lavdas, Ioannis; Iglesias, Juan Eugenio; Aboagye, Eric O.; Rockall, Andrea G.; Rueckert, Daniel (Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention − MICCAI 2016. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2016)
      The Dixon method is a popular and widely used technique for fat-water separation in magnetic resonance imaging, and today, nearly all scanner manufacturers are offering a Dixon-type pulse sequence that produces scans with ...

      Cortical tracking of speech in noise accounts for reading strategies in children 

      Destoky, Florian; Bertels, Julie; Niesen, Maxime; Wens, Vincent; Vander Ghinst, Marc; Leybaert, Jacqueline; Lallier, Marie; Ince, Robin A. A.; Gross, Joachim; De Tiège, Xavier; Bourguignon, Mathieu (PLOS BIOLOGY, 2020)
      Humans’ propensity to acquire literacy relates to several factors, including the ability to understand speech in noise (SiN). Still, the nature of the relation between reading and SiN perception abilities remains poorly ...

      Cortical Tracking of Speech-in-Noise Develops from Childhood to Adulthood 

      Vander Ghinst, Marc; Bourguignon, Mathieu; Niesen, Maxime; Wens, Vincent; Hassid, Sergio; Choufani, Georges; Jousmäki, Veikko; Hari, Riitta; Goldman, Serge; De Tiège, Xavier (The Journal of Neuroscience,, 2019)
      In multitalker backgrounds, the auditory cortex of adult humans tracks the attended speech stream rather than the global auditory scene. Still, it is unknown whether such preferential tracking also occurs in children whose ...

      Corticokinematic coherence as a new marker for somatosensory afference in newborns 

      Smeds, Eero; Vanhatalo, Sampsa; Piitulainen, Harri; Bourguignon, Mathieu; Jousmäki, Veikko; Hari, Riitta (Clinical Neurophysiology, 2017)
      Objective Somatosensory evoked potentials have high prognostic value in neonatal intensive care, but their recording from infants is challenging. Here, we studied the possibility to elicit cortical responses in newborns ...

      Coupling between human brain activity and body movements: Insights from non-invasive electromagnetic recordings 

      Bourguignon, Mathieu; Jousmäki, Veikko; Dalal, Sarang S.; Jerbi, Karim; De Tiège, Xavier (NeuroImage, 2019)
      Electroencephalographic and magnetoencephalographic data have characterized two types of brain–body interactions observed during various types of motor actions, “corticokinematic” and “corticomuscular” coupling. Here, we ...
