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

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

Journal Article
Rice, N. J., Edwards, M. G., Schindler, I., Punt, T. D., McIntosh, R. D., Humphreys, G. W., …Milner, A. D. (2008). Delay abolishes the obstacle avoidance deficit in unilateral optic ataxia. Neuropsychologia, 46(5), (1549-1557). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2008.01.012. ISSN 0028-3932

Optic ataxic patients have deficits in the visual control of manual reaching and grasping. It has been established previously that these deficits in target-directed behaviour improve following a delay in response. Recently it has been demonstrated th... Read More
