La Trobe University, Bundoora, Melbourne, VIC 3086, Australia
Exp Brain Res 197:69-79. 2009..Thus, a role for V5/MT+ in accurate single word identification is apparent suggesting rapid triggering of attention to salient exogenous stimuli may be required prior to processing in primary and temporal cortical regions...
- Towards an understanding of the role of the 'magnocellular advantage' in fluent readingRobin Laycock
School of Psychological Science, La Trobe University, Bundoora, VIC 3086, Australia
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 32:1494-506. 2008..Such organization is argued to be crucial for the development of fluent reading...

School of Psychological Science, La Trobe University, Kingsbury Drive, Bundoora, Melbourne, Victoria 3086, Australia
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 32:1409-15. 2008..These criticisms are each rebutted in detail here, and the basis for a model derived from the magnocellular advantage is reaffirmed...

School of Psychological Science, La Trobe University, Bundoora, Victoria 3086, Australia
J Neurophysiol 98:1253-62. 2007..A profound disruption of performance prestimulus onset is more likely to reflect disruption of top-down expectancy than disruption of visual processing...

Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, The Alfred and Monash School of Psychology, Psychiatry and Psychological Medicine, Commercial Road, Melbourne, Victoria 3004, Australia
J Clin Neurosci 15:863-7. 2008..The lack of significant TCF findings is discussed in light of the methodological limitations, while the theoretical significance of deficient TCI to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia is considered...
- A comparative study of the effects of repetitive paired transcranial magnetic stimulation on motor cortical excitabilityPaul B Fitzgerald
Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, The Alfred and Monash University School of Psychiatry, Psychology and Psychological Medicine, Commercial Road, Melbourne, Victoria 3004, Australia
J Neurosci Methods 165:265-9. 2007..We aimed to compare the post-train effects of 15 min trains of rppTMS to investigate the potential therapeutic application of this technique as well as to compare it to a standard high frequency repetitive TMS paradigm...
- A combined rTMS and ERP investigation of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex involvement in response inhibitionDaniel J Upton
Monash and Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre MAP RC, Monash University, School of Psychology and Psychiatry, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Clin EEG Neurosci 41:127-31. 2010..This negative finding is interpreted with caution, but is consistent with a recent study which found that stimulation of the same region had no effect on a behavioral measure of response inhibition...

Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, The Alfred and Monash University School of Psychology, Psychiatry and Psychological Medicine, Melbourne, Australia
Psychol Med 37:583-94. 2007..In contrast, bilaterally active corticospinal tracts accounting for overflow probably represent a naturally occurring response during fatiguing contractions...
