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

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

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
