Worse than expected: A z-curve reanalysis of motor cortex stimulation studies of embodied language comprehension

Dozens of TMS and tDCS studies suggest a functional involvement of motor cortex in action language comprehension, supporting the embodied cognition view. In a recent study (Solana & Santiago, 2022, Neurosci. Biobehav. Rev., 141, 104834), we evaluated the soundness of this literature [...]

Not so fast: Orienting to crossmodal semantic congruence depends on task relevance and perceptual load

Research shows that crossmodal semantic congruency plays a role in the orienting of spatial attention and visual search. However, the extent to which crossmodal semantic relationships summon attention automatically or necessitate of top-down modulation is still not entirely clear. To date, researchers [...]

From Basic to Applied Science: The Case of the Differential Outcomes Procedure

A major health and societal challenge nowadays is how to ameliorate and/or delay the onset of cognitive decline in humans suffering from diverse pathologies. Often, solutions can be found in basic science conducted in the laboratory through the use of very well-known [...]
