- The effect of orbitofrontal lesions on the error-related negativityAndrew U Turken
Research Service, Veterans Affairs Northern California Health Care System, Martinez, CA, USA
Neurosci Lett 441:7-10. 2008..Three of the patients also had impaired error correction performance, but all showed normal post-error slowing. These findings suggest OFC involvement in monitoring and evaluation of ongoing performance...
- Event-related potentials differentiate the effects of aging on word and nonword repetition in explicit and implicit memory tasksD Swick
Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis, USA
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 23:123-42. 1997..The elderly had ERP and behavioral deficits at long recognition delays. ERP repetition effects in the elderly, like behavioral performance, were preserved in an implicit task but impaired in an explicit memory task...
- Hemispheric asymmetries in the perceptual representations of wordsAmy E Lincoln
Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA

- Interpreting dissociations between regular and irregular past-tense morphology: evidence from event-related potentialsTimothy Justus
Cognitive Neuropsychology and Electrophysiology Laboratory, VA Northern California Health Care System, Martinez, California 94553 4668, USA
Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 8:178-94. 2008..We argue that, although we observe a regular-irregular dissociation, the nature of this dissociation is more consistent with single- than with dual-system models of inflectional morphology...
- Right hemisphere reading mechanisms in a global alexic patientJary Larsen
Neurology Research, VA Northern California Health Care System, University of California, Davis, 150 Muir Road 151, Martinez, CA 94553, USA

Department of Neurology, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:3495-500. 2001..These results suggest that activity can occur in V1 and ventral temporal cortex without awareness, whereas coupling with dorsal parietal and frontal areas may be critical for such activity to afford conscious perception...

Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley 94720 1650, USA
Acta Psychol (Amst) 101:159-78. 1999..Thus, prefrontal cortex is able to sculpt behavior through parallel inhibitory and excitatory regulation of neural activity in distributed neural networks...

Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104 6196, USA
Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 2:109-20. 2002..We propose that the left inferior frontal gyrus subserves a general, nonmnemonic function of selecting relevant information in the face of competing alternatives and that this function may be required by some working memory tasks...
