- Newborns discriminate novel from harmonic sounds: a study using magnetoencephalographyAnke Sambeth
Cognitive Brain Research Unit, Department of Psychology, University of Helsinki, P O Box 9, FIN 00014 Helsinki, Finland
Clin Neurophysiol 117:496-503. 2006..We investigated whether newborns respond differently to novel and deviant sounds during quiet sleep...
- Sleeping newborns extract prosody from continuous speechAnke Sambeth
Brain and Music Team, Cognitive Brain Research Unit, Department of Psychology, P O Box 9, FIN 00014, University of Helsinki, Finland
Clin Neurophysiol 119:332-41. 2008..Behavioral experiments show that infants use both prosodic and statistical cues in acquiring language. However, it is not yet clear whether these prosodic and statistical tools are already present at birth...
- Learning-induced neural plasticity of speech processing before birthEino Partanen
Cognitive Brain Research Unit, Cognitive Science, Institute of Behavioral Sciences, University of Helsinki, 00014, Helsinki, Finland
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 110:15145-50. 2013..Consequently, our results indicate neural commitment specifically tuned to the speech features heard before birth and their memory representations. ..
- Somatosensory evoked magnetic fields from the primary and secondary somatosensory cortices in healthy newbornsPäivi Nevalainen
BioMag Laboratory, Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa, HUSLAB, Helsinki University Central Hospital, P O Box 340, FIN 00029 HUS, Finland
Neuroimage 40:738-45. 2008..We conclude that both the contra- and ipsilateral SI and SII can participate in the processing of somatosensory information in human neonates...
- Auditory event-related potentials in humans and rats: effects of task manipulationAnke Sambeth
Nijmegen Institute of Cognition and Information Department of Biological Psychology, University of Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Psychophysiology 40:60-8. 2003..The P3 in rats appeared at 380 ms. We conclude that either the relation between human and rat peak latencies is not linear, or the P3 in rats is not the equivalent of the human P3...

NICI Department of Biological Psychology, University of Nijmegen, P O Box 9104, 6500 HE Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Int J Psychophysiol 53:197-205. 2004..It is further suggested that the observed amplitude reductions may reflect habituation and/or recovery cycle processes...
- Sex differences in the effect of acute tryptophan depletion on declarative episodic memory: a pooled analysis of nine studiesAnke Sambeth
Department of Neurocognition, Faculty of Psychology, Maastricht University, P O Box 616, 6200 MD Maastricht, The Netherlands
Neurosci Biobehav Rev 31:516-29. 2007..The findings provide further support for a critical role of serotonin in declarative episodic memory...
- Cholinergic drugs affect novel object recognition in rats: relation with hippocampal EEG?Anke Sambeth
Faculty of Psychology and Brain and Behavior Institute, Maastricht University, The Netherlands
Eur J Pharmacol 572:151-9. 2007..However, there was a clear dissociation between memory performance and EEG after combined treatment with drugs, which makes additional research where EEG and performance measures are co-registered imperative...
