In another study, the same group explored neural correlates with an explicit morphological judgment task and found specific involvement of the left middle frontal gyrus and inferior parietal gyrus, with increased activation in the morphological conditions relative to semantic relatedness, rhyming, and orthographic by: 6. In particular, the neural correlates of morphological complexity as a process which involves structural analysis have not yet been considered due to a focus on monomorphemic pseudowords. To fill this gap, the present study was designed to test differences in internal structure between superficially similar morphologically complex by: 4. Morphological complexity is a highly debated issue in visual word recognition. Previous neuroimaging studies have shown that speakers are sensitive to degrees of morphological complexity. Two‐step derived complex words (bridging through bridge N > bridge V > bridging) led to more enhanced activation in the left inferior frontal gyrus than Cited by: 4. Increased membrane surface area provides a morphological correlate for this capacity. This electric organ comprises a unique neural system in which axons have evolved so as to generate external signals, an adaptation involving a functionally significant structural differentiation of .

  These findings are extremely relevant to the mPFC dopaminergic activity, involving cognition and motor functions,,. Hippocampus. Hippocampus is a key component of neural circuits and has connections with anterior cingulate cortex, NAcc, amygdala and midbrain raphe nuclei. If the neural language system is differentially sensitive to phonological cues which signal morphological decomposition, then we would expect a different pattern of activation for the regularly inflected sets compared with either the irregularly inflected or the simple sets, neither of which can be decomposed and must be accessed as full forms. If a cognitive activity requires a higher demand (e.g. instruction by an experimenter in a formal experiment), neural activation ‘moves’, metaphorically speaking, towards the target neuronal network to be recruited, whereas at the same time medial frontal and parietal regions as part of the DMN tend to decrease their activity [75,76].

Biochemical methods are comprised of a wide range of procedures that monitor the effects of drugs on behavior and of advanced technologies that are used to assay hormones, neurotransmitters, and biochemical by-products of nervous system activity.   (b) Neural correlates of consciousness. The neural correlates of consciousness (NCC) have been defined as the minimal neural mechanisms that are jointly sufficient for any one conscious percept, thought or memory, under constant background conditions (figure 1b) [1,23,24]. This book presents a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of brain*b1behavior relations as they bear on learning and memory. The structure of memory is investigated from a diversity of approaches, including anatomical, pharmacological, electrophysiological and lesions, and through the use of different populations, such as invertebrate, vertebrate. Neural correlate: brain activity that corresponds with and is necessary to produce a particular experience. For example, the neural correlates of consciousness are the events that must occur in the brain for consciousness to become manifest.
