Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity (2018)
Journal Article
Jones, O., Jones, O., Schindler, I., Schindler, I., Holle, H., & Holle, H. (in press). Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity. Experimental Dermatology, https://doi.org/10.1111/exd.13803

Itch, a complex unpleasant sensation causing the desire to scratch, results from the activity of a network of brain regions. However, the specific functional contributions of individual regions within this network remains poorly understood. We invest...

Differential roles of polar orbital prefrontal cortex and parietal lobes in logical reasoning with neutral and negative emotional content (2018)
Journal Article
Eimontaite, I., Goel, V., Raymont, V., Krueger, F., Schindler, I., & Grafman, J. (2018). Differential roles of polar orbital prefrontal cortex and parietal lobes in logical reasoning with neutral and negative emotional content. Neuropsychologia, 119, 320-329. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2018.05.014

To answer the question of how brain pathology affects reasoning about negative emotional content, we administered a disjunctive logical reasoning task involving arguments with neutral content (e.g. Either there are tigers or women in NYC, but not bot...

Transcranial magnetic stimulation over left inferior frontal and posterior temporal cortex disrupts gesture-speech integration (2018)
Journal Article
Zhao, W., Riggs, K., Schindler, I., & Holle, H. (2018). Transcranial magnetic stimulation over left inferior frontal and posterior temporal cortex disrupts gesture-speech integration. Journal of Neuroscience, 38(8), 1891-1900. https://doi.org/10.1523/JNEUROSCI.1748-17.2017

Language and action naturally occur together in the form of co-speech gestures and there is now convincing evidence that listeners display a strong tendency to integrate semantic information from both domains during comprehension. A contentious quest... Read More about Transcranial magnetic stimulation over left inferior frontal and posterior temporal cortex disrupts gesture-speech integration.
