Functional neuroanatomy of sign language in deaf signers: Activation Likelihood Estimation meta-analysis and Meta-Analytic Connectivity Mapping

The neurophysiological response during comprehension and production of sign language has been studied using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) since the advent of neuroimaging. Deaf signers have been …

The neural basis of sign language processing in deaf signers: An Activation Likelihood Estimation meta-analysis

The neurophysiological response during processing of sign language (SL) has been studied since the advent of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Nevertheless, the neural substrates of SL remain subject …

Psycholinguistic norms for more than 300 lexical manual signs in German Sign Language (DGS)

Sign languages provide researchers with an opportunity to ask empirical questions about the human language faculty that go beyond considerations specific to speech and writing. Whereas psycholinguists working with spoken and written language stimuli …

Reviewing the functional neuroanatomy of sign language in deaf signers using Activation Likelihood Estimation

The neurophysiological response during comprehension and production of sign language has been studied using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) since the advent of neuroimaging. Deaf signers have been …

The case against synaptic plasticity as the brain’s basic memory mechanism

Synaptic plasticity is widely considered to provide the neurobiological basis of learning and memory. From the perspective of “classical” cognitive science, this view cannot be upheld. Here, I summarise the argument against the synapse as the (sole) …

The language network(s): Beyond localisation?

The cognitive revolution of the 1950s reinvigorated the idea that the brain is the organ enabling the mind. Hence, the human ability to acquire and use language, a fundamentally mental property, must be considered and studied as a property of the …
