- Prospective multi-centre Voxel Based Morphometry study employing scanner specific segmentations: procedure development using CaliBrain structural MRI dataT William J Moorhead
The Division of Psychiatry, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, School of Molecular and Clinical Medicine, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
BMC Med Imaging 9:8. 2009..The CaliBrain project was designed to provide for an assessment of scanner differences at three centres in Scotland, and to assess the practicality of pooling scans from multiple-centres...
- A voxel-based investigation of brain structure in male adolescents with autistic spectrum disorderGordon D Waiter
Department of Radiology, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
Neuroimage 22:619-25. 2004..The picture as a whole may reflect an abnormally functioning social cognitive neural network. We suggest that increased grey matter volume may play a pivotal role in the aetiology of the autistic syndrome...
- Structural white matter deficits in high-functioning individuals with autistic spectrum disorder: a voxel-based investigationGordon D Waiter
Department of Radiology, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
Neuroimage 24:455-61. 2005..No significant areas of increased white matter volume were found. Our findings support the hypothesis that reduced white matter volume in the corpus callosum and right hemisphere may play a role in the pathophysiology of ASD...
- Mine and me: exploring the neural basis of object ownershipDavid J Turk
University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
J Cogn Neurosci 23:3657-68. 2011..These results indicate that a self-memory advantage can be elicited by object ownership and that this effect is underpinned by activity in a neural network that supports attentional, reward, and motor processing...
- Inter-individual differences in fMRI entropy measurements in old ageMoses O Sokunbi
Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre, SINAPSE Collaboration, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 58:3206-14. 2011..This finding was independent of ability in childhood but not independent of current cognitive ability. ApEn is used for the first time to identify a potential source of individual differences in cognitive ability using fMRI data...

- Stereotype-based modulation of person perceptionSusanne Quadflieg
School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen, AB24 3FX, Scotland, UK
Neuroimage 57:549-57. 2011..Comparable effects did not emerge during a non-social judgment task. These findings begin to elucidate how and when stereotypic beliefs modulate the formation of person percepts in the brain...
- An fMRI study of joint attention experienceJustin H G Williams
Department of Child Health, University of Aberdeen School of Medicine, Foresterhill, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
Neuroimage 25:133-40. 2005..The developmental failure of this substrate in the left anterior frontal lobe may be important in the etiology of autistic spectrum disorder...
- Cortical and subcortical mechanisms at the core of imitationJustin H G Williams
University of Aberdeen, UK
Soc Neurosci 2:66-78. 2007..Together they offer a potentially powerful means through which matching one's actions to those of others can lead to behavioral modification and development...
- Nonlinear complexity analysis of brain FMRI signals in schizophreniaMoses O Sokunbi
Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, United Kingdom Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom Institute of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, Medical Research Council Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics, Cardiff School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom

- Neural mechanisms of imitation and 'mirror neuron' functioning in autistic spectrum disorderJustin H G Williams
Department of Child Health, University of Aberdeen Medical School, Royal Aberdeen Children s Hospital, Aberdeen AB25 2ZG, UK
Neuropsychologia 44:610-21. 2006..Such poor integration is likely to adversely affect the development of ToM through imitation as well as other aspects of social cognitive function in ASD...
- Do mirror neuron areas mediate mu rhythm suppression during imitation and action observation?Lieke Braadbaart
School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, UK
Int J Psychophysiol 89:99-105. 2013..This suggests that mu suppression involves a range of structures that modulate motor preparation activities and are sensitive to visual input, including but not restricted to the human analogue of the mirror neuron system. ..
- Differential effects of tryptophan depletion on emotion processing according to face directionJustin H G Williams
Department of Child Health, University of Aberdeen Medical School, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 2:264-73. 2007..These changes could be adaptive in a threatening context and markedly affect empathic function in conditions associated with impaired serotonin function, such as depression and autism...
- Is retaining the youthful functional anatomy underlying speed of information processing a signature of successful cognitive ageing? An event-related fMRI study of inspection time performanceGordon D Waiter
Department of Radiology, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen, UK
Neuroimage 41:581-95. 2008..The relative preservation of complex reasoning skills in old age may be associated with the preservation of the neural networks that underpin fundamental information processing in youth...
- Perceiving and expressing feelings through actions in relation to individual differences in empathic traits: the Action and Feelings Questionnaire (AFQ)Justin H G Williams
Royal Cornhill Hospital, Aberdeen, AB25 2ZH, UK
Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 16:248-60. 2016..We suggest that being more empathic really is about being "touchy-feely," and this questionnaire provides a novel measure of action-based empathy. ..
- Exploring the neural correlates of social stereotypingSusanne Quadflieg
