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...

Effects of short-term temperature change in the innocuous range on histaminergic and non-histaminergic acute itch (2018)
Journal Article
Lewis, Z., George, D. N., Cowdell, F., & Holle, H. (2019). Effects of short-term temperature change in the innocuous range on histaminergic and non-histaminergic acute itch. Acta dermato-venereologica, 99(2), 188-195. https://doi.org/10.2340/00015555-3077

While temperatures in the noxious range are well-known to inhibit acute itch, the impact of temperature in the innocuous temperature range is less well understood. We investigated the effect of alternating short-term temperature changes in the innocu...

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.

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. https://doi.org/10.2340/00015555-2584

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...

Hand gestures as visual prosody: BOLD responses to audio–visual alignment are modulated by the communicative nature of the stimuli (2016)
Journal Article
Biau, E., Morís Fernández, L., Holle, H., Avila, C., & Soto-Faraco, S. (2016). Hand gestures as visual prosody: BOLD responses to audio–visual alignment are modulated by the communicative nature of the stimuli. NeuroImage, 132, 129-137. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2016.02.018

During public addresses, speakers accompany their discourse with spontaneous hand gestures (beats) that are tightly synchronized with the prosodic contour of the discourse. It has been proposed that speech and beat gestures originate from a common un...

The role of auditory itch contagion in psoriasis (2015)
Journal Article
Swithenbank, S., Cowdell, F., & Holle, H. (2016). The role of auditory itch contagion in psoriasis. Acta dermato-venereologica, 96(6), 728-731. https://doi.org/10.2340/00015555-2320

Itch and associated scratching is a common and distressing symptom of psoriasis. Here, we tested whether people with psoriasis, relative to healthy controls, show an increased vulnerability to auditory itch contagion (a deleterious influence) when pr...

Brain oxygenation patterns during the execution of tool use demonstration, tool use pantomime, and body-part-as-object tool use (2015)
Journal Article
Helmich, I., Holle, H., Rein, R., & Lausberg, H. (2015). Brain oxygenation patterns during the execution of tool use demonstration, tool use pantomime, and body-part-as-object tool use. International journal of psychophysiology : official journal of the International Organization of Psychophysiology, 96(1), 1-7 . https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijpsycho.2015.03.001

© 2015 Elsevier B.V. Divergent findings exist whether left and right hemispheric pre- and postcentral cortices contribute to the production of tool use related hand movements. In order to clarify the neural substrates of tool use demonstrations with...

Inconsistent use of gesture space during abstract pointing impairs language comprehension (2015)
Journal Article
Gunter, T. C., Weinbrenner, J. E. D., & Holle, H. (2015). Inconsistent use of gesture space during abstract pointing impairs language comprehension. Frontiers in psychology Frontiers Research Foundation, 6(FEB), https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2015.00080

Pointing toward concrete objects is a well-known and efficient communicative strategy. Much less is known about the communicative effectiveness of abstract pointing where the pointing gestures are directed to “empty space.” McNeill's (2003) observati...

EasyDIAg: A tool for easy determination of interrater agreement (2014)
Journal Article
Holle, H., Holle, H., Rein, R., & Rein, R. (2015). EasyDIAg: A tool for easy determination of interrater agreement. Behavior research methods, 47(3), 837-847. https://doi.org/10.3758/s13428-014-0506-7

Reliable measurements are fundamental for the empirical sciences. In observational research, measurements often consist of observers categorizing behavior into nominalscaled units. Since the categorization is the outcome of a complex judgment process... Read More about EasyDIAg: A tool for easy determination of interrater agreement.
