Fractionating Executive Control in the Human Brain: A Within-Subjects fMRI Study
Executive control processes have been found to cluster around three factors: updating, inhibition and task switching. However, few studies have directly investigated the fractionation of executive control in the brain, and ...
Examining the Relationship between Autobiographical Episodic Memory and Theory of Mind in Developmental Amnesia and with fMRI: The Role of Personal Familiarity
The purpose of this dissertation was to examine if, and under what conditions, autobiographical memory (AM) supported by the hippocampus benefits theory of mind (ToM). To this end, I attempted to address two main questions: ...
Functional and Structural Substrates of Neural Modulation in Older Adults After Executive Control Training
The fronto-parietal control network (FPCN) and dorsal attention network (DAN) are critical for goal-directed cognition (GDC), which is known to decline with advancing age. Here, we investigated whether a strategy-based ...
Impoverished Descriptions of Familiar Routes in Three Cases of Hippocampal Amnesia
Recent research has challenged classic theories of hippocampal function in spatial memory with findings that the hippocampus may be necessary for detailed representations of environments learned long ago, but not for ...
