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, doi: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... Read More

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. (in press). Differential roles of polar orbital prefrontal cortex and parietal lobes in logical reasoning with neutral and negative emotional content. Neuropsychologia, ISSN 0028-3932

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... Read More

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). doi:10.1523/JNEUROSCI.1748-17.2017. ISSN 0270-6474

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

Assessing acute itch intensity : general labelled magnitude scale is more reliable than classic visual analogue scale (2016)
Journal Article
Jones, O., Holle, H., Jones, O., & Schindler, I. (2017). Assessing acute itch intensity : general labelled magnitude scale is more reliable than classic visual analogue scale. Acta dermato-venereologica, 97(3), (375-376). doi:10.2340/00015555-2584. ISSN 0001-5555

The reliable measurement of itch intensity is crucial, both in research as well as clinical contexts. For example, when the reliability of a measurement scale is unknown, it is impossible to determine whether a patient has changed sufficiently to be... Read More

Differential modulation of performance in insight and divergent thinking tasks with tDCS (2015)
Journal Article
Eimontaite, I., Goel, V., Schindler, I., & Goel, A. (2015). Differential modulation of performance in insight and divergent thinking tasks with tDCS. Journal of Problem Solving, 8(1), 23-35. doi:10.7771/1932-6246.1172

While both insight and divergent thinking tasks are used to study creativity, there are reasons to believe that the two may call upon very different mechanisms. To explore this hypothesis, we administered a verbal insight task (riddles) and a diverge... Read More

Subliminal galvanic-vestibular stimulation influences ego- and object-centred components of visual neglect (2014)
Journal Article
Oppenländer, K., Keller, I., Karbach, J., Schindler, I., Kerkhoff, G., & Reinhart, S. (2015). Subliminal galvanic-vestibular stimulation influences ego- and object-centred components of visual neglect. Neuropsychologia, 74, 170-177. doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2014.10.039

Neglect patients show contralesional deficits in egocentric and object-centred visuospatial tasks. The extent to which these different phenomena are modulated by sensory stimulation remains to be clarified. Subliminal galvanic vestibular stimulation... Read More

The effect of partner-directed emotion in social exchange decision-making (2013)
Journal Article
Nicolle, A., Eimontaite, I., Goel, V., & Schindler, I. (2013). The effect of partner-directed emotion in social exchange decision-making. Frontiers in Psychology, 4(JUL), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2013.00469. ISSN 1664-1078

Despite the prevalence of studies examining economic decision-making as a purely rational phenomenon, common sense suggests that emotions affect our decision-making particularly in a social context. To explore the influence of emotions on economic de... Read More

Near and far space neglect: task sensitivity and anatomical substrates (2012)
Journal Article
Aimola, L., Schindler, I., Simone, A. M., & Venneri, A. (2012). Near and far space neglect: task sensitivity and anatomical substrates. Neuropsychologia, 50(6), (1115-1123). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2012.01.022. ISSN 0028-3932

Most group studies which have investigated neglect for near and far space have found an increased severity of symptoms in far space compared to near space. However, the majority of these studies used relatively small samples and based their findings... Read More

Task- and response related dissociations between neglect in near and far space: A morphometric case study (2012)
Journal Article
Venneri, A., Aimola, L., & Schindler, I. (2012). Task- and response related dissociations between neglect in near and far space: A morphometric case study. Behavioural neurology, 27(3), (245-257). doi:10.3233/BEN-2012-110243. ISSN 0953-4180

Introduction: Patients with unilateral neglect may show line bisection errors selectively in either near (within hand reaching) or far (beyond hand reaching) space which suggests that these two spatial areas are coded differently by the brain. This e... Read More

Optokinetic stimulation affects word omissions but not stimulus-centered reading errors in paragraph reading in neglect dyslexia (2011)
Journal Article
Reinhart, S., Schindler, I., & Kerkhoff, G. (2011). Optokinetic stimulation affects word omissions but not stimulus-centered reading errors in paragraph reading in neglect dyslexia. Neuropsychologia, 49(9), (2728-2735). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2011.05.022. ISSN 0028-3932

Patients with right hemisphere lesions often omit or misread words on the left side of a text or the initial letters of single words, a phenomenon termed neglect dyslexia (ND). Omissions of words on the contralesional side of the page are considered... Read More

When normal subjects grasp with their right hand a rectangular object placed at different orientations in the horizontal plane, they change from a 'thumb left' (clockwise) to a 'thumb right' (anti-clockwise) grasp when the orientation exceeds about 1... Read More

The disengage deficit in hemispatial neglect is restricted to between-object shifts and is abolished by prism adaptation (2008)
Journal Article
Schindler, I., Benson, V., Birchall, D., Cassidy, T. P., Ietswaart, M., McIntosh, R. D., & Milner, A. D. (2009). The disengage deficit in hemispatial neglect is restricted to between-object shifts and is abolished by prism adaptation. Experimental Brain Research, 192(3), 499-510. doi:10.1007/s00221-008-1585-4

We sought to determine the effects of prism adaptation on peripherally cued visual attention shifting in patients with spatial neglect, using a task devised by Egly et al. (J Exp Psychol Gen 123:161-177, 1994) based on the classic Posner paradigm. Th... Read More
