  1. pmc Identifying cortical lateralization of speech processing in infants using near-infrared spectroscopy
    Heather Bortfeld
    Department of Psychology, Texas A and M University, College Station, Texas 77843, USA
    Dev Neuropsychol 34:52-65. 2009
    ..These findings are consistent with those obtained using other neurophysiological methods and point to the utility of NIRS as a means of establishing neural correlates of language development in older (and more active) infants...
  2. pmc Assessing infants' cortical response to speech using near-infrared spectroscopy
    Heather Bortfeld
    Department of Psychology, Texas A and M University, 4235 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843, USA
    Neuroimage 34:407-15. 2007
    ..In particular, these findings support the use of NIRS to study the neurobiology of language development in older infants, a task that is difficult to accomplish without the use of attention-getting visual stimuli...
  3. pmc Hemodynamic response to featural changes in the occipital and inferior temporal cortex in infants: a preliminary methodological exploration
    Teresa Wilcox
    Department of Psychology, Texas A and M University, College Station, TX 77843, USA
    Dev Sci 11:361-70. 2008
    ..These data were discussed in terms of (a) what they suggest about the neural basis of feature processing in infants and (b) the viability of using NIRS to study brain-behavior relations in infants...
  4. pmc Using near-infrared spectroscopy to assess neural activation during object processing in infants
    Teresa Wilcox
    Texas A and M University, Psychology Department, MS 4235 TAMU, College Station, Texas 77843, USA
    J Biomed Opt 10:11010. 2005
    ..The outcome has important implications for research in cognitive development, developmental neuroscience, and optical imaging...

    Heather Bortfeld
    Department of Psychology, Texas A and M University, College Station, TX, USA
    Exp Psychol 50:217-30. 2003
    ..Results support arguments for a continuum of analyzability (Bortfeld & McGlone, 2001), along which figurative speech ranges from reflecting general conceptual structures to specific cultural and historical references...
  6. pmc Hemodynamic changes in the infant cortex during the processing of featural and spatiotemporal information
    Teresa Wilcox
    Texas A and M University, United States
    Neuropsychologia 47:657-62. 2009
    ..The outcome of this experiment reveals early functional specialization of temporal cortex and lays the foundation for future investigation of the maturation of object processing pathways in humans...

    Department of Psychology, Texas A and M University, College Station, TX 77843, USA
    Psychol Sci 16:298-304. 2005
    ..Young infants have a powerful aid available to them for cracking the speech code. Their emerging familiarity with particular words, such as their own and other people's names, can provide initial anchors in the speech stream...
  9. pmc Optical imaging of phonological processing in two distinct orthographies
    Hsin Chin Chen
    Department of Psychology, National Chung Cheng University, 168 University Rd, Ming Hsiung Chia Yi, Taiwan
    Exp Brain Res 184:427-33. 2008
    ..Results thus support previous findings using fMRI and suggest that different neural mappings arise depending on whether an individual has learned to process written language using an alphabetic or logographic script...
