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 protects anterior temporal lobe integrity in agingJubin Abutalebi
Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China Centre of Cognitive Neurosciences, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, San Raffaele University, Milano, Italy Electronic address
Neurobiol Aging 35:2126-33. 2014..Our data emphasize the vulnerability of the temporal pole to normal aging and the value of bilingualism as both a general and specific protective factor to GMV decreases in healthy aging. ..
- The role of the left putamen in multilingual language productionJubin Abutalebi
Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Vita Salute San Raffaele University, Milan, Italy
Brain Lang 125:307-15. 2013..These findings highlight that the multilingual brain handles a complex articulatory repertoire (i.e., dealing with multiple languages) by inducing structural plasticity in the left putamen...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
