- Early setting of grammatical processing in the bilingual brainIsabell Wartenburger
Department of Neurology, Charite, Humboldt University, Schumannstr 20 21, 10117 Berlin, Germany
Neuron 37:159-70. 2003..These findings support the view that both AOA and PL affect the neural substrates of second language processing, with a differential effect on grammar and semantics...
- The neural basis of first and second language processingDaniela Perani
Department of Neuroscience, Vita Salute San Raffaele University, Via Olgettina 58, 20132 Milan, Italy
Curr Opin Neurobiol 15:202-6. 2005..Finally, the acquisition of L2 could be considered as a dynamic process, requiring additional neural resources in specific circumstances...
- Late acquisition of literacy in a native languageJubin Abutalebi
Department of Neuroscience, Vita Salute San Raffaele University and Scientific Institute H San Raffaele, Milan, Italy
Hum Brain Mapp 28:19-33. 2007..The latter result is compatible with a "fast" brain plasticity process that may be related to a shift of reading strategies...
- Language selection in bilinguals: a spatio-temporal analysis of electric brain activityAsaid Khateb
Laboratory of Experimental Neuropsychology, Department of Neurology, Geneva University Hospitals, Geneva, Switzerland
Int J Psychophysiol 65:201-13. 2007..Our results suggest that language selection is achieved through a neural network involving areas implicated in both general cognitive processes and language processing...
- Neural aspects of second language representation and language controlJubin Abutalebi
Department of Psychology, Vita Salute San Raffaele University, Via Olgettina 58, 20132 Milan, Italy
Acta Psychol (Amst) 128:466-78. 2008..The activity of brain areas related to cognitive control during the processing of a 'weak' L2 may reflect competition and conflict between languages which may be resolved with the intervention of these areas...
- Bilingualism tunes the anterior cingulate cortex for conflict monitoringJubin Abutalebi
Vita Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy
Cereb Cortex 22:2076-86. 2012..These results suggest that early learning and lifelong practice of 2 languages exert a strong impact upon human neocortical development. The bilingual brain adapts better to resolve cognitive conflicts in domain-general cognitive tasks...
- Anton's syndrome following callosal disconnectionJ Abutalebi
Centre of Cognitive Neuroscience, University Vita Salute San Raffaele, Milan, Italy
Behav Neurol 18:183-6. 2007..The present case study suggests that Anton's syndrome may also follow from lesions disconnecting the occipital cortices...
- The neural cost of the auditory perception of language switches: an event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging study in bilingualsJubin Abutalebi
Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Vita Salute San Raffaele University and San Raffaele Scientific Institute, 20132 Milan, Italy
J Neurosci 27:13762-9. 2007..This suggests that switching into a less-exposed language requires controlled processing resources. This pattern of brain activity may constitute an important neural signature of language dominance in bilinguals...
- Bilingual aphasia and language control: a follow-up fMRI and intrinsic connectivity studyJubin Abutalebi
Vita Salute San Raffaele University and Division of Neuroscience, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan, National Neuroscience Institute, Italy
Brain Lang 109:141-56. 2009..This functional approach holds great promise for investigating recovery patterns and the effects of specific language treatment in bilingual aphasic patients...
- Language control and lexical competition in bilinguals: an event-related FMRI studyJubin Abutalebi
Centre for Cognitive Neurosciences, Vita Salute San Raffaele University and Scientific Institute San Raffaele, 20132 Milan, Italy
Cereb Cortex 18:1496-505. 2008....
- Generating animal and tool names: an fMRI study of effective connectivityPaolo Vitali
Scientific Institute San Raffaele, Milan, Italy
Brain Lang 93:32-45. 2005..These category-specific functional differences extend the evidence for anatomical specialization to lexical search tasks, and provide for the first time evidence of category-specific patterns of functional integration in word-retrieval...
- The role of age of acquisition and language usage in early, high-proficient bilinguals: an fMRI study during verbal fluencyDaniela Perani
Universita Vita Salute San Raffaele, Milan, Italy
Hum Brain Mapp 19:170-82. 2003....
- Pathophysiology of language switching and mixing in an early bilingual child with subcortical aphasiaPeter Mariën
Department of Neurology, General Hospital Middelheim, Antwerp, Belgium
Neurocase 11:385-98. 2005..The parallelism between the evolution of language symptoms and the SPECT findings may demonstrate that a subcortical left frontal lobe circuity is crucially involved in language switching and mixing...
- Training-induced brain remapping in chronic aphasia: a pilot studyPaolo Vitali
Vita Salute University and San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milano, Italy
Neurorehabil Neural Repair 21:152-60. 2007..In the specific case of aphasia, although several investigations have addressed the issue of the neural substrates of functional recovery, only a few studies have attempted to assess the impact of language training on the damaged brain...
