Brain Activation during Sentence Comprehension among Good and Poor Readers

Email: meyler@andrew.cmu.edu. Abstract This study sought to increase current understanding of the neuropsychological basis of poor reading ability by using fMRI to examine brain activation during a visual sentence comprehension task among good and poor readers in the third (n = 32) and fifth (n = 35) grades. Reading ability, age, and the combination of both factors made unique contributions to cortical activation. Introduction The central aim of this study was to examine brain activation during visual sentence comprehension among poor readers. Like any cognitive task, reading is neurally underpinned not by a single area but a set of areas functioning as a large-scale cortical network. Methods Participants Table 1 Demographic and behavioral profile of good and poor readers: fifth and third grades Recruitment Results.

Interaction of Working Memory and Long-Term Memory in the Medial Temporal Lobe

Email: nikolai.axmacher@ukb.uni-bonn.de. Abstract Recent findings indicate that regions in the medial temporal lobe (MTL) do not only play a crucial role in long-term memory (LTM) encoding, but contribute to working memory (WM) as well. However, very few studies investigated the interaction between these processes so far. Introduction. Multisensory Visual–Auditory Object Recognition in Humans: a High-density Electrical Mapping Study. + Author Affiliations Abstract Multisensory object-recognition processes were investigated by examining the combined influence of visual and auditory inputs upon object identification — in this case, pictures and vocalizations of animals.

Multisensory Visual–Auditory Object Recognition in Humans: a High-density Electrical Mapping Study

Behaviorally, subjects were significantly faster and more accurate at identifying targets when the picture and vocalization were matched (i.e. from the same animal), than when the target was represented in only one sensory modality. This behavioral enhancement was accompanied by a modulation of the evoked potential in the latency range and general topographic region of the visual evoked N1 component, which is associated with early feature processing in the ventral visual stream.

Musicians' Enhanced Neural Differentiation of Speech Sounds Arises Early in Life: Developmental Evidence from Ages 3 to 30

Seventy-six normal hearing children and adults (<20 dB HL pure tone thresholds at octave frequencies from 125 to 8000 Hz) between the ages of 3–30 years participated in this study and were grouped by age: preschoolers (3–5 years old, N = 21), school-aged children (7–13 years old, N = 26), and adults (18–30 years old, N = 29). Although all adults were tested on the neurophysiological paradigm, only 17 of the 29 adults (10 musicians) received the full cognitive assessment. Parietal Functional Connectivity in Numerical Cognition. Reading and Subcortical Auditory Function. Abstract Although it is largely agreed that phonological processing deficits are a major cause of poor reading, the neural origins of phonological processing are not well understood.

Reading and Subcortical Auditory Function

We now show, for the first time, that phonological decoding, measured with a test of single-nonword reading, is significantly correlated with the timing of subcortical auditory processing and also, to a lesser extent, with the robustness of subcortical representation of the harmonic content of speech, but not with pitch encoding. The relationships we observe between reading and subcortical processing fall along a continuum, with poor readers at one end and good readers at the other. These data suggest that reading skill may depend on the integrity of subcortical auditory mechanisms and are consistent with the idea that subcortical representation of the acoustic features of speech may play a role in normal reading as well as in the development of reading disorders.
