White matter changes in corticobasal degeneration syndrome and correlation with limb apraxia
(American Medical Association, 2008)
BACKGROUND: Data on white matter changes in corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBDS) are not yet available, whereas cortical gray matter loss is a feature of this condition. The structural abnormalities related to a key ...
The impact of poor sleep on cognition and activities of daily living after traumatic brain injury : a review
Sleep and everyday activities after TBI
Background/aim : Patients frequently report sleep disrup-tions or insomnia during their hospital stay, particularlyafter a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The consequences ofthese sleep disturbances on everyday activities ...
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 ...
Test-retest reliability of diffusion measures extracted along white matter language fiber bundles using HARDI-based tractography
(Frontiers media, 2019-01-14)
High angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI)-based tractography has been increasingly used in longitudinal studies on white matter macro- and micro-structural changes in the language network during language acquisition ...
Clinical, anatomical and pathological features in the three variants of primary progressive aphasia : a review
(Frontiers media, 2018-08-21)
Primary progressive aphasias (PPA) are neurodegenerative diseases clinically characterized by an early and relatively isolated language impairment. Three main clinical variants, namely the nonfluent/agrammatic variant ...
Disentangling the direction of associations between sleep and temperament in toddlers
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-06-24)
Objectives/Background: Although much research has investigated the associations between children’s sleep and their temperament, the direction of these associations remains unclear, largely due to a lack of longitudinal ...
Visual and auditory perceptual strength norms for 3,596 French nouns and their relationship with other psycholinguistic variables
Perceptual experience plays a critical role in the conceptual representation of words. Higher levels of semantic variables such as imageability, concreteness, and sensory experience are generally associated with faster and ...
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 ...
Mother–infant interaction and child brain morphology : a multidimensional approach to maternal sensitivity
Sensitivity and brain structure
Emerging research suggests that normative variation in parenting quality relates to children's brain development. However, although the young brain is presumed to be especially sensitive to environmental influence, to our ...
Brain white matter damage and its association with neuronal synchrony during sleep
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-28)
The restorative function of sleep partly relies on its ability to deeply synchronize cerebral networks to create large slow oscillations observable with EEG. However, whether a brain can properly synchronize and produce a ...
