Differential involvement of the anterior temporal lobes in famous people semantics
(Frontiers media, 2016-08-30)
The ability to recognize a famous person occurs through semantic memory. Previous neuroimaging studies have shown that the anterior temporal lobes (ATLs) are involved in the recognition of famous people. However, it is ...
The role of the left anterior temporal lobe for unpredictable and complex mappings in word reading
(Frontiers media, 2017-04)
The anterior temporal lobes (ATLs) have been consistently associated with semantic processing which, in turn, has a key role in reading aloud single words. This study aimed to investigate (1) the reading abilities in ...
Comprehension of concrete and abstract words in semantic variant primary progressive aphasia and Alzheimer’s disease: a behavioral and neuroimaging study
The aim of this study was to investigate the comprehension of concrete, abstract and abstract emotional words in semantic variant primary progressive aphasia (svPPA), Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and healthy elderly adults ...
A MEG study of the neural substrates of semantic processing in semantic variant primary progressive aphasia
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-07-01)
Despite a well-documented pattern of semantic memory (SM) impairment, the patterns of brain activation during semantic processing in svPPA still remain poorly understood. The current study aimed to investigate the neural ...
Single and Multiple Domain Amnestic MCI: two sides of the same coin?
Single- and multiple-domain amnestic mild cognitive impairment: two sides of the same coin?
Background. Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI) is considered a transition stage between normal aging and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Two main clinical subtypes of aMCI have been identified: 1) aMCI single domain ...
