  1. ncbi request reprint Integration of local features into global shapes: monkey and human FMRI studies
    Zoe Kourtzi
    Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, 72076 Tuebingen, Germany
    Neuron 37:333-46. 2003
    ..These findings suggest that unified shape perception in both monkeys and humans involves multiple visual areas that may integrate local elements to global shapes at different spatial scales...
  2. ncbi request reprint Shape saliency modulates contextual processing in the human lateral occipital complex
    Christian F Altmann
    Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tubingen, Germany
    J Cogn Neurosci 16:794-804. 2004
    ..That is, neural populations in the LOC encode context information when relevant to the perception of target shapes, but represent salient targets independent of context changes...
  3. ncbi request reprint Similar cortical correlates underlie visual object identification and orientation judgment
    Christian F Altmann
    Section Neuropsychology, Department of Cognitive Neurology, Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, University of Tubingen, Tubingen, Germany
    Neuropsychologia 43:2101-8. 2005
    ..Our findings suggest that object identification and orientation judgment do not follow strictly separable cortical pathways, but rather involve both the dorsal and the ventral stream...

    Linda V Heinemann
    Institute of Medical Psychology, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

    Institute of Medical Psychology, Goethe University, 60528 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Hear Res 282:216-24. 2011
    ..These enhancement effects were observed for the first but not further repetitions suggesting a second-order repetition suppression of the initial repetition enhancement...
  6. doi request reprint Effects of feature-selective attention on auditory pattern and location processing
    Christian F Altmann
    Institute of Medical Psychology, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
    Neuroimage 41:69-79. 2008
    ..Given that the location matching task was significantly more difficult than the pattern matching, our data suggest that frontal and insular regions were modulated by task difficulty rather than feature-specific attention...
