    Olga Sachs
    RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany
    J Cogn Neurosci 23:1263-73. 2011
    ..Nevertheless, the differences between associative and categorical relations might be parametrical rather than absolutely distinct as both relationships recruit similar regions to a different degree...

    Olga Sachs
    Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, RWTH Aachen University, Pauwelstr 30, D 52074 Aachen, Germany
    Brain Res 1218:194-205. 2008
    ..We suggest that the greater involvement of precuneus in the processing of taxonomic relations indicates their reduced salience in the knowledge structure compared to more prominent thematic relations...
