- Contrast-enhanced MRI lesions during treatment with interferonbeta-1b predict increase in T1 black hole volume in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosisK Morgen
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
Mult Scler 11:146-8. 2005..In patients without CEL, the T1 BH volume remained stable, whereas it increased in patients with CEL. The occurrence of CEL in patients treated with IFNbeta may indicate a heightened risk of accumulating T1 BH...

Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 3:55-61. 2008..Results suggest that meditation practice is associated with structural differences in regions that are typically activated during meditation and in regions that are relevant for the task of meditation...
- Utilizing the ventriloquism-effect to investigate audio-visual bindingM Bischoff
Bender Institute of Neuroimaging and Department of Clinical and Physiological Psychology, Justus Liebig University, Giessen, Germany
Neuropsychologia 45:578-86. 2007..Implementing the ventriloquism-effect allows us to relate these activations to consciousness-related processes, which probably are different from stimulus-driven multisensory integration in subcortical areas...
