Department of Cognitive Science, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093 0515, USA
J Neurosci 24:6181-8. 2004..The finding that even point-light animations evoke activity in frontal regions suggests that the motor system of the observer may be recruited to "fill in" these simplified displays...
- Nonverbal auditory agnosia with lesion to Wernicke's areaAyse Pinar Saygin
University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Neuropsychologia 48:107-13. 2010..This substantial reorganization of auditory processing likely supported the recovery of M's speech processing...
- A developmental ERP study of verbal and non-verbal semantic processingAlycia Cummings
Project in Cognitive and Neural Development, University of California, San Diego, USA
Brain Res 1208:137-49. 2008..Thus, while the semantic processing of single words is well established by 7 years of age, the processing of environmental sounds continues to improve throughout development...
- Motion-sensitive cortex and motion semantics in American Sign LanguageStephen McCullough
Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA, USA
Neuroimage 63:111-8. 2012..We conclude that top down modulation of motion-sensitive cortex by linguistic semantics is not disrupted by the visual motion that is present in sign language sentences...
- The thing that should not be: predictive coding and the uncanny valley in perceiving human and humanoid robot actionsAyse Pinar Saygin
Department of Cognitive Science and Neurosciences Program, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 7:413-22. 2012..These results could reflect increased prediction error as the brain negotiates an agent that appears human, but does not move biologically, and help explain the 'uncanny valley' phenomenon...
- Modulation of BOLD response in motion-sensitive lateral temporal cortex by real and fictive motion sentencesAyse Pinar Saygin
Department of Cognitive Science, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
J Cogn Neurosci 22:2480-90. 2010..These data are consistent with a view of language comprehension as an embodied process, with neural substrates as far reaching as early sensory brain areas that are specifically related to the represented semantics...
- An on-line task for contrasting auditory processing in the verbal and nonverbal domains and norms for younger and older adultsAyse Pinar Saygin
University of California, San Diego, Department of Cognitive Science, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Behav Res Methods 37:99-110. 2005..In addition to the results reported here, the test can be useful to other researchers who are interested in systematically contrasting verbal and nonverbal auditory processing in other populations...

Ahmanson Lovelace Brain Mapping Center and Neuroscience Interdepartmental Program, University of California, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA
Nat Neurosci 7:701-2. 2004..Our findings support the view that the motor system is recruited in mapping acoustic inputs to a phonetic code...
- Language in an embodied brain: the role of animal modelsFrederic Dick
Center for Research in Language, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla 92093 0526, USA
Cortex 40:226-7. 2004
- Lesion correlates of conversational speech production deficitsArielle Borovsky
University of California, San Diego, USA

- What is involved and what is necessary for complex linguistic and nonlinguistic auditory processing: evidence from functional magnetic resonance imaging and lesion dataFrederic Dick
Birkbeck College, London, UK
J Cogn Neurosci 19:799-816. 2007..Brain, 126, 928-945, 2003] were generally predictive of the extent of blood oxygenation level dependent fMRI activation across these regions for sounds and linguistic stimuli in young healthy subjects...
- The role of appearance and motion in action predictionAyse Pinar Saygin
Department of Cognitive Science, Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind, University of California San Diego, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Psychol Res 76:388-94. 2012..We suggest that the selection of the internal sensorimotor model used for action prediction is influenced by the observed agent's appearance...
- Smoothing and cluster thresholding for cortical surface-based group analysis of fMRI dataDonald J Hagler
University of California, San Diego, Department of Cognitive Science, 9500 Gilman Drive 0515, La Jolla, CA 92093 0515, USA
Neuroimage 33:1093-103. 2006..We generated an empirical heat diffusion kernel width function by performing surface-based smoothing simulations and found a large disparity between the expected and actual kernel widths...

Department of Cognitive Science, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California, United States of America
PLoS ONE 5:e13491. 2010..However, the literature on biological motion perception in ASC is heterogeneous and it is unclear whether deficits are specific to biological motion, or might generalize to form-from-motion perception...
