Neuroimaging data in the “ViCom” Open Science Data Network

In this short impulse talk, I'll discuss existing solutions for data organisation, storage, and publication such as the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) and the Open Science Framework (OSF) and how they may be utilized in the context of ViCom. …

Neurobiology of spoken, written, and sign language processing

The human capacity for language is best described as a biologically determined computational mechanism yielding an unbounded array of hierarchically structured expressions and should not be conflated with notions of “speech” or “communication”. The …

Can detection of extraneous visual signals reveal the syntactic structure of sign language?

Background The ability to combine individual lexical items into phrases and sentences is at the core of the human capacity for language (Friederici et al., 2017). Linguistic research indicates that the world’s sign languages exhibit complex …

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 …

A meta-analytic perspective on data sharing and reproducibility in cognitive neuroscience of sign language

The acquisition of most neuroimaging data and especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data is laborious and cost-intensive. Nevertheless, the practice of data sharing is not commonplace in the field of cognitive neuroscience of sign language. We …
