Pure Word Deafness (PWD) is an extremely rare disorder, usually caused by bilateral temporal damage. In a small but sizeable number of cases, it follows unilateral, left temporal lesions. In these subjects, it is attributed to strategically placed cortical/subcortical damage, disconnecting Wernicke’s area from the primary auditory area in...

The investigation of human cognition benefits from a dual perspective approach, as the evolution and development of modern human abilities are inextricably linked. It is widely acknowledged that humans demonstrate population-level right-handedness, linked with dominant left hemisphere control of language processes. Additionally, it is r...

The advantages and challenges of combining non-invasive functional mapping techniques and dMRI for understanding functional networks.

The integration of different functional localiser methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with advanced structural imaging techniques such as diffusion...

In recent years, new approaches for the technique of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) have been developed. TMS is presently used as a research and clinical tool in the field of epilepsy, either combined with electromyography (TMS-EMG) and/or electroencephalography (TMS-EEG). Recent studies have shown that these techniques can identify...

'The nature of the inputs and outputs of a brain region defines its functional specialization. The frontal portion of the brain is essential for goal-directed behaviors, however, the biological basis for its functional organization is unknown. Here, exploring structural connectomic properties, we delineated 12 fronta...

As a medical student, Giuseppe Moruzzi was introduced to neurophysiology by Mario Camis, who had worked with Luciani in Rome and with Sherrington in Liverpool.  Moruzzi owes his scientific fame mostly to his discovery with Magoun of the arousing function of the brainstem reticular formation. However he made other important contributions...

Recovery of language in stroke-induced aphasia is little understood, with extant theories suggesting that ipsilesional and/or contralesional tissue may be recruited into the language network. However, several cognitive and neural factors contribute to recovery patterns, including language de...

Visual recognition seems to happen easily and automatically — yet if we see a small, transparent truncated conical object how do we know that it might be something to use when consuming liquid? For holding flowers? Recognising objects, animals, and people is a challenging and complex process that is considered to be one of the “hard p...

Investigating the connectivity of the human brain is one of the most challenging tasks of neuroscience. Developing and applying novel techniques to visualize and study large brain networks is essential to achieve a complete reconstruction of the human brain connectome. 

Today the ability the reproduce three-dimensional trajectories of white matter connections...

Left-sided hemispatial neglect is a common and disabling syndrome after right-hemispheric stroke. Influential models of neglect conceive this syndrome as the result of impaired dynamics in inter-hemispheric inhibition. Recent studies demonstrated that non-invasive brain stimulation techniques are able to positively influence...
