non semantic stimuli

Our number priming results (Dehaene et al., 1998) can certainly be reinterpreted non-semanti-cally within the DMS framework. Consequently, for a qualitative visualization of the source estimates, here we plot the whole-brain thresholded t values (p < 0.05) of the source estimate contrasts, uncorrected for multiple comparisons. Furthermore, we can be confident that the 382-ms time window allows us to capture semantic processes as this time window was defined on the basis of RTs (minus a motor preparation period) that are themselves modulated by the semantic associations of the words. Here, we investigated the processing of complex non-verbal sounds in detail, in a consecutive series of 20 patients with primary progressive aphasia [12 with progressive non-fluent aphasia; eight with semantic dementia]. (responses: YES/NO); (3) did you engage in any strategy to speed up your responses using the color cue? Therefore it had no effect on activation for semantic versus perceptual decisions. First, vAG and dAG activation was higher for semantic decisions than fixation which suggests these regions are more involved in stimulus driven semantics than amodal semantic associations. semantic category, and non-repeated pictures of objects from different categories could be explained by the differences in the perceptual similarity between the stimuli rather than the semantic content. Next, across all participants we used the same procedure to determine outlier participants and rejected data from two participants that met the outlier criteria. The following reviewer(s) agreed to reveal their identity: Benjamin Rohaut, Sari Ylinen. Some argue that evoked neural responses [e.g., event-related potentials (ERPs)] reflect prediction errors (Friston, 2005; Chennu et al., 2013). eNeuro eISSN: 2373-2822. However, there is no evidence of a two-stage profile that reflects violations of semantic expectations at a single level of the hierarchy, such as the mismatch negativity (MMN) and P3b observed in the local-global paradigm, which are elicited by violations of local and global expectations, respectively. Language relationships such as opposition provide a systematic method of generating non-obvious semantic stimuli for design problems. The thresholded t values showed the peak of activity at the right middle and superior fontal gyri for the early effect; and the activity peak at the right supplementary motor area for the late effect, as shown in Figure 5. Therefore, although predicting the identity of a specific related target had only a ∼22% probability of being correct in a low validity context, it was still more likely than predicting any one of the vast arrays of potential unrelated target words. 2B). By manipulating the overall proportion of related or unrelated word-pairs across the task, we created two global contexts that differentially encouraged strategic use of primes. Mean RTs and confidence intervals (95%): prime validity (high/low), relatedness of the target (related/unrelated).

All significant effects are shown in red-to-yellow (A) or blue-to-white (B) color coding and projected on an individual T1-weighted image. available pathway is such a non-semantic associative response chain? However, as noted above, appeal to precision-weighting problematically allows for post hoc explanations of all possible ERP patterns (Bowman et al., 2013). S1 and S2, available at www.jneurosci.org as supplemental material; see detailed results on data from right-handed subjects only). The key distinction here is that verbal semantic stimuli (i.e., the written object names) are more strongly linked to their sounds than the nonverbal stimuli (i.e., the pictures of objects) (Glaser and Glaser, 1989). They described AG as a heteromodal association area. We therefore propose that dAG activation in response to non-semantic (unfamiliar) stimuli might reflect a search for semantics even though this search will be implicit (not task related) and unsuccessful during the non-semantic conditions. The default network, as defined by deactivation relative to fixation during all unfamiliar stimuli, is illustrated in Figure 1B. The task-set is specified by the prime validity, such that under high prime validity, the links between words and motor responses for related words are foregrounded/preactivated, e.g., the response “DOG” is set. Our participants were engaged in 8 goal directed tasks as well as fixation. We suggest below that the dAG is involved in searching for a semantic representation and vAG is associated with later stages of conceptual identification. This T1-weighted anatomic scan was then co-registered with the digitized electrode locations using FieldTrip. Therefore, under a predictive coding framework, one can appeal to varying levels of attention across task conditions. The effect size of a voxel within the default network that is not part of the semantic system (indicated by a white cross) is shown on a bar graph in black. We aimed to detect a RT interaction of the same magnitude as seen in the strategy group of experiment 1; therefore, we conducted a power analysis to select an appropriate sample size for this goal. C, Mean RTs and confidence intervals (95%) showing a significant interaction (p = 0.007) presented in Table 2. Next, the related filler set was assigned with one color (yellow or blue), and the unrelated filler set was assigned with the other color. Although a number of researchers have argued that these patients have impaired comprehension of non-verbal as well as verbal stimuli, the evidence for semantic deterioration is mainly derived from tasks that include some form of verbal input or output. Together, these analyses suggested no apparent electrophysiological markers of pre-target expectation formation in our data. Next, for each participant individually, we extracted the average source estimation values of all VEs (from prior source estimation; cf. Additional details about the stimulus selection can be found in the work of Josse et al. We performed non-parametric power calculations using the data of all participants of the strategy group from experiment 1. (E.g. Meanwhile, responding to stimuli with purely spatial correlations, pairs of ganglion cells showed increased correlations consistent with a static, non-adapting receptive field and nonlinearity. Every two stimulus blocks, fixation continued for 14.4 s. All stimuli were presented in triads with one item (picture or letter string) above and two items below in the same format as the item above. In 2 sessions, the participants made semantic and perceptual decisions, interleaved with blocks of fixation. D. Since the discovery of the Stroop Effect in 1935 questions about the role of language vs. non-lexical stimuli in selective attention remain. To disentangle these results, here we report a preregistered trial-by-trial manipulation of both local and global semantic expectations. The inclusion criteria were the same as those for experiment 1; however, participants were also required to attend for a structural T1-weighted MRI scan at the University of Birmingham; therefore, participants who had any metal parts in their body, were claustrophobic, or women who were pregnant were excluded from the study, as the scan was mandatory for participation. The sensor covariance matrix was estimated for all these sets of data in the time window −382–382 ms relative to target onset. Because of our interest in analyzing slow-waves (see below, Prime slow wave linear fit analyses), we performed no high-pass filtering. Next, we interpolated the data of any previously removed channels via the spherical interpolation method of EEGLAB and re-referenced the data to the average of the whole head. Descriptive statistics including mean RT (ms) and SD of related and unrelated word pairs on each validity context, high prime validity and low prime validity, Prime analyses: ERPs, time frequency and slow wave linear fit analyses. The absence of (expected) CNV should be discussed more thoroughly. Data processing and statistical analyses were performed with the Statistical Parametric Mapping SPM5 software package (Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, London UK, http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm/). Each participant was tested individually and sat ∼70 cm away from the computer screen. (4) “Same symbols” cued the same perceptual task as “Same pictures” except with meaningless Greek letter strings rather than pictures of meaningless objects. SfN does not assume any responsibility for any injury and/or damage to persons or property arising from or related to any use of any material contained in eNeuro. Specifically, we expected these differential expectations to be reflected in the ERPs, including the slope of a putative slow wave, or contingent negative variation (CNV; Chennu et al., 2013), and/or in the power of the EEG in the α/β bands, as these have been previously associated with the precision of expectations (Bauer et al., 2014). Therefore, the final sample consisted of 62 participants (59 females, three males; median age: 19, range: 18–28). The theory of embodied cognition postulates that the brain represents semantic knowledge as a function of the interaction between the body and the environment. 3D) and is more extreme (i.e., more positive-going) for expected targets. Hence, each participant saw all words within the full set of 352 word-pairs exactly once, composed of 176 related word-pairs and 176 unrelated word-pairs. For the whole brain ERP source analysis, we used single-trial data that had not been subjected to robust averaging, and defined trials as time windows from −382 to 382 ms relative to target onset. Functional imaging consisted of an echoplanar imaging with gradient recalled echo sequence (repetition time/echo time/flip angle = 3600 ms/50 ms/90°, field of view = 192 mm, matrix = 64 × 64, 40 axial slices, 2 mm thick with 1 mm gap).

Spatiotemporally adjacent electrodes (t values) with p < 0.05 were then clustered based on their proximity, with the requirement that a cluster must span more than one time point and at least four neighboring electrodes, with an electrode’s neighborhood containing all electrodes within an ∼4-cm radius (median: 8, range:2–10). Binder et al. We excluded the 4 conditions that used familiar stimuli because they may involve direct or indirect semantic access that can bias the overlap with the semantic network. For example, individuals can recognise a word faster if it is paired with a related word. Under this interpretation, our results are therefore also consistent with interpretations of early ERPs as reflections of prediction error and later ERPs as processes related to conscious access and in support of task demands (Dehaene and Christen, 2011; Rohaut et al., 2015). The CNV is typically observed in the preparatory period before a temporally-expected target and is considered to reflect priming of the neural circuits required for a task-appropriate response, whether that be motoric (Gómez et al., 2001) or cognitive (Chennu et al., 2013). This suggests that vAG and dAG may be more involved in the conceptual identification of visual input, which is essential for picture naming but not reading (Glaser and Glaser, 1989). Recent studies have demonstrated that the capacity of visual working memory is influenced by the type of information to be remembered and is greater for real-world objects than for abstract stimuli. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1523/JNEUROSCI.3377-10.2010. Predictive coding theory posits that the brain generates expectations about upcoming stimuli at varying levels of complexity, from low-level expectations about stimulus properties through to higher-level conceptual expectations. In the present study, we provided evidence of an early ERP effect that reflects violations of local semantic expectations, followed by an apredictive signal that interacted with the global context. Two out of four sets of three non-semantic stimuli were used for each participant, and the order of presentation was counterbalanced. To create the unrelated word-pair lists, we manually re-paired (within list) all word-pairs in each of the four lists above, Stimuli section (two critical, two fillers) ensuring that unrelated targets were semantically unrelated to their prime. Although all voxels were significantly more activated during semantic matching than perceptual matching, their response can be characterized into three main patterns (see bar graphs): activated by both matching conditions relative to fixation (red), deactivated by both matching condition relative to fixation (blue), or activated during semantic matching but deactivated during perceptual matching relative to fixation (yellow). Specifically, each trial started with a central fixation cross on a gray background lasting 600 ms, then, the prime word was displayed in either yellow or blue, at the center of the screen for 160 ms, followed by a blank screen for 1080 ms, and subsequently the target was displayed on the screen; thus, the stimulus onset asynchrony (SOA) was 1240 ms. Note that, as the Bayes factor is the ratio of evidence for two hypotheses, the same category descriptions hold for the inverse (i.e., 1:3, 1:10, 1:100). Please explain Hurst exponent and cite a reference. Descriptive statistics including mean RT (ms) and SD of related and unrelated word-pairs on each validity context, high prime validity and low prime validity. (6) “Read” indicated that the participant should read aloud each of the 3 words. What are the numbers partly obscured?

SM, Semantic matching, PM, perceptual matching. But there are certain cases when semantic memory is lost. (8) “1,2,3 Symbols” indicated that the participant should say “1,2,3” while looking at each of the 3 strings of Greek letters. A functional theory of the whole mind must make reference to any difference in stimuli or responses that can be mentally significant. As our analyses were two-tailed, we set the family-wise error corrected cluster α to 0.025. Robust averaging iteratively down-weights outlier values by time point to improve estimation of the mean across trials. Three non-semantic stimuli were used for each session, intermixed with three semantic stimuli. (2010) and Mognon et al. Indeed, a classical N400 effect is the difference between two negative-going ERPs that are more extreme (i.e., more negative-going) for semantically unexpected targets (Kutas and Federmeier, 2011). We do not retain these email addresses. Non-semantic tags are just opposite in nature of semantic tags. With an N of 22 participants in the strategy group, we achieved 80% power at p < 0.05 (i.e., 80% of ANOVAs included a significant interaction). In summary, we are proposing that mAG is involved in semantic associations regardless of the presence or absence of a stimulus; dAG is involved in searching for semantics in all visual stimuli, and vAG is involved in the later stages of conceptual identification from visual inputs. First, all word pairs available in the database (N = 1661) were ordered by Forward Associative Strength (i.e., the proportion of individuals who spontaneously name the same target after reading the prime word) and the 352 word-pairs with the highest strength were selected after removal of any specific American English associations (e.g., Clorox-Bleach; Slacks-Pants). Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, Institute of Neurology, University College London, 12 Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG, UK. The interaction was driven by a larger semantic priming effect in the high prime validity context (t(21) = −4.254, p < 0.001, Cohen’s d = −0.907, CI = −1.398 −0.400) than in the low prime validity context (t(21) = −2.046, p = 0.054, Cohen’s d = −0.436, CI = −0.869 0.007; Table 2). To determine both the anterior and posterior parts of the LMTG and LSTG, we calculated the center of mass of each AAL region and selected all virtual electrodes that were anterior or posterior to the center of mass. Fig. Before proceeding to group-level analyses, single-subject averages for the ERP analysis were finalized in the following way. During semantic and perceptual decisions, the item above acted as a target that was semantically or physically related to one of the items below. Thus, a two-way repeated-measures ANOVA revealed a main effect of sentence type (jokes vs non-jokes; F (1,11) = 97.75, p < 0.0001). A common spatial filter was then computed on the dataset containing all trials using a linear constraint minimum variance (LCMV) beamformer (Van Drongelen et al., 1996; Van Veen et al., 1997; Robinson and Vrba, 1999). Introduction. First, on the behavioral level, participants of two separate experiments showed evidence of speeded RTs in related trials relative to unrelated trials, consistent with a local expectation generated about target word identity on the basis of the prime identity. Priming is an effect on implicit memory in which the reaction time of a response to a stimulus is faster due to having previous experience of the stimulus. Early functional imaging studies demonstrated AG activation during semantic processing of auditory (Démonet et al., 1992) and visual (Vandenberghe et al., 1996) stimuli and these findings have been replicated with high consistency and reliability across multiple studies with different semantic tasks and stimuli (for meta-analysis reviews, see Cabeza and Nyberg, 2000; Vigneau et al., 2006; Binder et al., 2009). Associated prime-target pairs were selected from the Semantic Priming Project database (Hutchison et al., 2013) and the experimental design was a replication of the paradigm implemented by Hutchison (2007). Future studies are required to look at the timing of activations in these three AG subdivisions and their connectivity, and to further compare the AG subdivisions identified here with AG areas associated with resting-state networks other than the default network (Damoiseaux et al., 2006; van den Heuvel et al., 2008; Smith et al., 2009). These patterns remained significant and robust even after excluding left handed subjects (supplemental Figs. It is usually considered to correspond with BA39 or von Economo and Koskinas' area PG [also defined as area 69 in the unified nomenclature of Triarhou (2007)]. Consistent with prior reports (Binder et al., 1999, 2009), we found that semantic activation and the default network overlapped in left AG (Fig. Here, we investigated the behavioral and electrophysiological correlates of such expectations and their violations at two levels of a semantic expectation hierarchy (local and global). Objective Real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging neurofeedback (rt-fMRI-NF) is a non-invasive MRI procedure allowing examined participants to learn to self-regulate brain activity by performing mental tasks. Our post-target time window therefore continued to 382 ms post-target. Little is known about the processing of non-verbal sounds in the primary progressive aphasias. There was no significant effect of the hand of response used in the matching tasks on activation for semantic relative to perceptual decisions. For example, it is also involved in episodic memory (Mazoyer et al., 2001; Anticevic et al., 2010; Yang et al., 2010) and self-relevant internal cognitive processes (Andrews-Hanna et al., 2010a). Specifically, there were no effects in analysis of the ERPs (smallest cluster p = 0.233), the slow wave linear fit analysis (no clusters formed), or the α-β time-frequency analysis (smallest cluster p = 0.136). Functionally, left AG has shown huge variability across functional neuroimaging studies. Therefore, in a deviation from the preregistered plan, we chose our latest time point of EEG data to analyze as 150 ms before the fastest mean RT across conditions (in this instance, high validity-related = 532 ms; for a similar approach, see Kuperberg et al., 2018). In any case I these points should be addressed in the discussion. This would result in preparatory priming of the same circuits in expectation of the upcoming target item, and therefore equivalent CNVs. To do that, we applied correlation analyses (Pearson correlation coefficient) on continuous variables (age and reaction times) or two-sample t tests on dichotomic variables (gender, handedness and hand of response). Moreover, the present data provides evidence for a successful replication of the behavioral effect elicited by the same paradigm as implemented by Hutchison (2007), who also found that the magnitude of the global facilitatory effect was modulated by the level of attentional control (i.e., weaker effect in individuals with lower attentional control; Hutchison, 2007). Differences in the response properties of the three AG subdivisions are illustrated in Figures 2 and 4 and summarized below. It is also unlikely to reflect visual or perceptual processing per se because dAG activation was not differentially activated by (a) perceptual decisions and saying “1,2,3” or (b) non-objects and Greek letters. Our findings provide a framework for reporting and interpreting AG activations with greater definition. Therefore, all the younger participants were right handed and responded with their right hand. To remove stationary artefacts, such as blinks and eye movements, the pruned EEG data were subjected to an independent component analysis with the runica function of EEGLAB. The clinical presentation of patients with semantic dementia is dominated by anomia and poor verbal comprehension. The target stayed on the screen until the participant pronounced the word; then the word disappeared from the screen, which remained blank for 300 ms. It is unclear how sensory signals are routed to motor behaviour in the experiment. It was also interesting to note that the semantic system did not overlap with the default network in any area other than left AG (Fig. The local-global paradigm (Bekinschtein et al., 2009) elegantly pits local expectation within each trial (i.e., standard vs deviant pitch tones) against a global expectation built from the context across blocks of trials. Non-facial stimuli included 8 random objects (e.g., flowers, clocks) that were cropped to the same oval shape as the above-mentioned faces. Understanding how different parts of AG interact with other regions can also help to refine previous language models; for instance, several recent studies have suggested that the left AG provides top-down “semantic constraints” during language comprehension (Price, 2010), a role that we can now potentially attribute to mAG/vAG rather than dAG. To test for significant differences between conditions we conducted five contrasts as mentioned above; first, an interaction between prime validity (high/low) and relatedness of the target (related/unrelated) in a time window from 316 to 350 ms; next, we tested the early and late main effects of relatedness of the target (related/unrelated) as observed in the sensor analyses results (four main effects), in their respective time windows for the early effect (226–280 and 232–290 ms); and the late effect (306–382 and 316–350 ms). 330. One explanation for this effect is that the semantic knowledge associated with real-world objects makes them easier to maintain in working memory. 3A,B) and the late main effect (Fig. Therefore, in exploratory analyses, we focused the time window of interest for the ERP analysis on the peak of the global field power Skrandies (1990) (530–1240 ms); however, this also revealed no significant difference between the high and low validity contexts (smallest cluster p = 0.139). Therefore, we could post hoc theorize that our late apredictive effect reflects individuals paying greater attention to the high validity trials as they have a high level of predictability and paying greater attention to related targets than unrelated targets, as the former fulfil their expectations.
