Sleep in children triggers rapid reorganization of memory-related brain processes
Behavioral evidence shows that sleep is crucial for the consolidation of declarative memories in children as in adults. However, the underlying cerebral mechanisms remain virtually unexplored. Using magnetoencephalography, ...
Left Superior Temporal Gyrus Is Coupled to Attended Speech in a Cocktail-Party Auditory Scene
(The Journal of Neuroscience, 2016)
Using a continuous listening task, we evaluated the coupling between the listener’s cortical activity and the temporal envelopes of different sounds in a multitalker auditory scene using magnetoencephalography and ...
Out-of-Synchrony Speech Entrainment in Developmental Dyslexia
(Human Brain Mapping, 2016)
Developmental dyslexia is a reading disorder often characterized by reduced awareness of speech units. Whether the neural source of this phonological disorder in dyslexic readers results from the malfunctioning of the ...
Sensorimotor activation related to speaker vs. listener role during natural conversation
(Neuroscience Letters, 2016)
Although the main function of speech is communication, the brain bases of speaking and listening are typically studied in single subjects, leaving unsettled how brain function supports interactive vocal exchange. Here ...
Effects of PSA Removal from NCAM on the Critical Period Plasticity Triggered by the Antidepressant Fluoxetine in the Visual Cortex
(Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience, 2016)
Neuronal plasticity peaks during critical periods of postnatal development and is reduced towards adulthood. Recent data suggests that windows of juvenile-like plasticity can be triggered in the adult brain by antidepressant ...
