Contrasting functional imaging parametric maps: The mislocation problem and alternative solutions
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 ...
Amodal Atypical Neural Oscillatory Activity in Dyslexia: A Cross-Linguistic Perspective
(Clinical Psychological Science, 2017)
It has been proposed that atypical neural oscillations in both the auditory and the visual modalities could explain why some individuals fail to learn to read and suffer from developmental dyslexia. However, the role of ...
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 ...
Theta oscillations mediate preactivation of highly expected word initial phonemes
(Scientific Reports, 2018)
Prediction has been proposed to be a fundamental neurocognitive mechanism. However, its role in language comprehension is currently under debate. In this magnetoencephalography study we aimed to find evidence of word-form ...
Neocortical activity tracks the hierarchical linguistic structures of self-produced speech during reading aloud
How the human brain uses self-generated auditory information during speech production is rather unsettled. Current theories of language production consider a feedback monitoring system that monitors the auditory consequences ...
Lip-Reading Enables the Brain to Synthesize Auditory Features of Unknown Silent Speech
(The Journal of Neuroscience, 2020)
Lip-reading is crucial for understanding speech in challenging conditions. But how the brain extracts meaning from, silent, visual speech is still under debate. Lip-reading in silence activates the auditory cortices, but ...
