    Daria Knoch
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland
    Cereb Cortex 15:885-7. 2005
    ..These findings confirm the functional importance of specifically the left DLPFC in sequential response production and show, for the first time, that rTMS affects cognitive processing in a frequency-dependent manner...

    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland
    Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 25:372-4. 2005
    ..In a random color generation task, we found evidence for an implicit co-activation of digits by colors, a finding that constrains neurological theories concerning cross-modal associations in general and synesthesia in particular...

    D Knoch
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, Frauenklinikstrasse 26, CH 8091 Zurich, Switzerland

    Marianne Regard
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital, Zurich, Switzerland
    Cogn Behav Neurol 16:47-53. 2003
