- Separate mechanisms for audio-tactile pitch and loudness interactionsJeffrey M Yau
Department of Neurology, Division of Cognitive Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Baltimore, MD, USA
Front Psychol 1:160. 2010..These findings underscore the complexity and specificity of multisensory interactions...
- Representation of tactile curvature in macaque somatosensory area 2Jeffrey M Yau
Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA
J Neurophysiol 109:2999-3012. 2013..These results reveal that transitions from orientation tuning to curvature selectivity in the somatosensory cortical hierarchy occur within SI rather than between SI and SII...
- Efficient and robust identification of cortical targets in concurrent TMS-fMRI experimentsJeffrey M Yau
Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
Neuroimage 76:134-44. 2013..Notably, this method can be used generally to identify the position and orientation of MR-compatible hardware placed near the head in the MR scanner...
- Curvature processing dynamics in macaque area V4Jeffrey M Yau
Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
Cereb Cortex 23:198-209. 2013..In either case, the dynamics of contour information in V4 and PIT appear to reflect a sequential hierarchical process of shape synthesis...
- Analogous intermediate shape coding in vision and touchJeffrey M Yau
Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute and Solomon H Snyder Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:16457-62. 2009..We found similar patterns of shape sensitivity characterized by tuning for curvature direction. These parallel tuning patterns imply analogous shape coding mechanisms in intermediate visual and somatosensory cortex...
- A tactile stimulator for studying passive shape perceptionJohn W Lane
Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute, Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
J Neurosci Methods 185:221-9. 2010..Because the two components of the stimulator are independently controlled, the stimulator allows for parametric study of the mechanoreceptive and proprioceptive contributions to 3D tactile shape perception...
- Temporal frequency channels are linked across audition and touchJeffrey M Yau
The Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
Curr Biol 19:561-6. 2009..This surprisingly specific crosstalk between different modalities reflects the importance of supramodal representations of fundamental sensory dimensions...
- Static field influences on transcranial magnetic stimulation: considerations for TMS in the scanner environmentJeffrey M Yau
Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA Electronic address
Brain Stimul 7:388-93. 2014..Although tremendous efforts have been directed at characterizing the impact of TMS on image acquisition, the influence of the scanner's static field on the TMS coil has received limited attention...
