Cognitive control during a spatial Stroop task: comparing conflict monitoring and prediction of response-outcome theories (2017)
Journal Article
Pires, L., Leitão, J., Guerrini, C., & Simões, M. R. (2018). Cognitive control during a spatial Stroop task: comparing conflict monitoring and prediction of response-outcome theories. Acta psychologica, 189, 63-75. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actpsy.2017.06.009

Cognitive control allows information processing and behaviour to vary adaptively from moment to moment depending on current goals. Two of the most prominent theories that have been proposed to account for the processing of cognitive control are the C... Read More

Aging and the number sense: preserved basic non-symbolic numerical processing and enhanced basic symbolic processing (2015)
Journal Article
Norris, J. E., McGeown, W. J., Guerrini, C., & Castronovo, J. (2015). Aging and the number sense: preserved basic non-symbolic numerical processing and enhanced basic symbolic processing. Frontiers in psychology Frontiers Research Foundation, 6, 1-13. doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2015.00999

Aging often leads to general cognitive decline in domains such as memory and attention. The effect of aging on numerical cognition, particularly on foundational numerical skills known as the number sense, is not well-known. Early research focused on... Read More

Event-related brain potentials in the study of inhibition: cognitive control, source localization and age-related modulations (2014)
Journal Article
Pires, L., Leitão, J., Guerrini, C., & Simões, M. R. (2014). Event-related brain potentials in the study of inhibition: cognitive control, source localization and age-related modulations. Neuropsychology Review, 24(4), 461-490. doi:10.1007/s11065-014-9275-4

In the previous 15 years, a variety of experimental paradigms and methods have been employed to study inhibition. In the current review, we analyze studies that have used the high temporal resolution of the event-related potential (ERP) technique to... Read More

Objective: A single case study with control and normative data of a 74-year-old retired businessman with amnestic mild cognitive impairment, who had spontaneous confabulations concerning fantastic exploits and magical powers as well as déjà vécu expe... Read More

Differential effects of aging on executive and automatic inhibition (2008)
Journal Article
Andrés, P., Guerrini, C., Phillips, L. H., & Perfect, T. J. (2008). Differential effects of aging on executive and automatic inhibition. Developmental Neuropsychology, 33(2), (101-123). doi:10.1080/87565640701884212. ISSN 8756-5641

One of the major accounts of cognitive aging states that age effects are related to a deficiency of inhibitory mechanisms (Hasher & Zacks, 1988). Given that inhibition has traditionally been associated with the frontal cortex, and that the fronta... Read More

Event related potentials reveal that increasing perceptual load leads to increased responses for target stimuli and decreased responses for irrelevant stimuli (2008)
Journal Article
Rorden, C., Guerrini, C., Swainson, R., Lazzeri, M., & Baylis, G. C. (2008). Event related potentials reveal that increasing perceptual load leads to increased responses for target stimuli and decreased responses for irrelevant stimuli. Frontiers in human neuroscience, 2(MAY), doi:10.3389/neuro.09.004.2008

Lavie (1995) have suggested that perceptual processing is influenced by perceptual load. Specifically, relevant information receives additional processing in high load situations exhausting the available capacity. On the other hand, irrelevant inform... Read More

The anatomical bases of semantic retrieval deficits in early Alzheimer's disease (2007)
Journal Article
Venneri, A., McGeown, W. J., Hietanen, H. M., Guerrini, C., Ellis, A. W., & Shanks, M. F. (2008). The anatomical bases of semantic retrieval deficits in early Alzheimer's disease. Neuropsychologia, 46(2), (497-510). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2007.08.026. ISSN 0028-3932

Semantic abilities deteriorate early in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and their residual language is characterised by strong lexical effects such as the age of acquisition of words and their typicality. The anatomical bases of this early sem... Read More

Temporal and spatio-temporal attention to tactile stimuli in extinction patients (2006)
Journal Article
Guerrini, C., & Aglioti, S. M. (2006). Temporal and spatio-temporal attention to tactile stimuli in extinction patients. Cortex; a journal devoted to the study of the nervous system and behavior, 42(1), (17-27). doi:10.1016/S0010-9452(08)70318-6. ISSN 0010-9452

The temporal deployment of attention to tactile stimuli delivered to the same or to a symmetrical position of the body was assessed in 6 Right-Brain Damaged (RBD) patients with left tactile extinction and 6 healthy controls. Two different tasks calle... Read More
