    Lauri Nummenmaa
    MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit and University of Tampere, Finland
    Child Dev 79:1659-75. 2008

    Human Information Processing Laboratory, Department of Psychology, FIN 33014, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
    J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 35:1738-54. 2009
    ..The processing of social and symbolic directional information can be modulated by top-down control, but the efficiency of the control depends on the visual saliency of the cues...

    Lauri Nummenmaa
    Human Information Processing Laboratory, Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Finland
    Neuroimage 43:571-80. 2008
    ..Emotional empathy facilitates somatic, sensory, and motor representation of other peoples' mental states, and results in more vigorous mirroring of the observed mental and bodily states than cognitive empathy...

    Lauri Nummenmaa
    Department of Psychology, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland
    J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 35:305-23. 2009

    Lauri Nummenmaa
    Department of Psychology, University of Turku, Turku, Finland
    Emotion 6:257-68. 2006
