Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus, 13001 E, 17th Place, Aurora, CO 80045, USA
BMC Psychiatry 12:213. 2012..This is of particular interest given that language impairments are a core symptom of ASD and may be part of the broad autism phenotype (BAP) seen in relatives...
- Not all analogies are created equal: Associative and categorical analogy processing following brain damageGwenda L Schmidt
Department of Psychology, Hope College, 35 E 12th St, Holland, MI 49423, USA
Neuropsychologia 50:1372-9. 2012..We argue that categorical relations additionally rely on the right hemisphere because they are more difficult, abstract, and fragile, and contain more distant relationships...
- Absence of M100 source asymmetry in autism associated with language functioningGwenda L Schmidt
Department of Radiology, Children s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Neuroreport 20:1037-41. 2009..An association was found between language functioning and the degree of asymmetry across the two groups of children, suggesting a possible relationship between functional-structural asymmetry and language ability...
- Neural correlates of metaphor processing: the roles of figurativeness, familiarity and difficultyGwenda L Schmidt
Department of Psychology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
Brain Cogn 71:375-86. 2009..We conclude that the right hemisphere is involved in metaphor processing and that the factors of figurativeness, familiarity and difficulty are important in determining neural recruitment of semantic processing...
