    Background Evidence from previous studies suggests that bilingualism contributes to cognitive reserve because bilinguals manifest the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) up to 5 years later than monolinguals. Other ...
  • Ressel, Volker; Pallier, Christophe; Ventura-Campos, Noelia; Díaz, Begoña; Roessler, Abeba; Ávila, César; Sebastián Gallés, Núria (Society for Neuroscience, 2012)
    Two studies (Golestani et al., 2007; Wong et al., 2008) have reported a positive correlation between the ability to perceive foreign speech sounds and the volume of Heschl's gyrus (HG), the structure that houses the auditory ...
  • Burgaleta Díaz, Miguel, 1981-; Sanjuán, Ana; Ventura Campos, Noelia; Sebastián Gallés, Núria; Ávila, César (Elsevier, 2016)
    Naturally acquiring a language shapes the human brain through a long-lasting learning and practice process. This is supported by previous studies showing that managing more than one language from early childhood has an ...
  • Rodríguez Pujadas, Aina; Sanjuán, Ana; Ventura Campos, Noelia; Román, Patricia; Martin, Clara D.; Barceló-Arroyo, Francisco; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Ávila, César (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    We tested the hypothesis that early bilinguals use language-control brain areas more than monolinguals when performing/nnon-linguistic executive control tasks. We do so by exploring the brain activity of early bilinguals ...
  • Costumero, Víctor; Uquillas, Federico d'Oleire; Díez, Ibai; Andorrà, Magí; Basaia, Silvia; Bueichekú, Elisenda; Ortiz Terán, Laura; Belloch, Vicente; Escudero Torrella, Joaquin; Ávila, César; Sepulcre, Jorge (Elsevier, 2020)
    Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with brain network dysfunction. Network-based investigations of brain connectivity have mainly focused on alterations in the strength of connectivity; however, the network breakdown ...
  • Biau, Emmanuel, 1985-; Morís Fernández, Luis, 1982-; Holle, Henning; Ávila, César; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2016)
    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 ...
  • Parcet, Maria-Antònia; Adrián Ventura, Jesús; Costumero, Víctor; Ávila, César (Frontiers, 2020)
    Sensitivity to reward is a personality trait that predisposes a person to several addictive behaviors, including the presence of different risky behaviors that facilitates uncontrolled eating. However, the multifactorial ...
  • Barrós Loscertales, Alfonso; Ventura Campos, Noelia; Visser, Maya; Alsius, Agnès; Pallier, Christophe; Ávila, César; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2013)
    Neuroimaging studies of audiovisual speech processing have exclusively addressed listeners’ native language (L1). Yet, several behavioural studies now show that AV processing plays an important role in non-native (L2) ...
  • Costumero, Víctor; Bueichekú, Elisenda; Adrián Ventura, Jesús; Ávila, César (Springer, 2020)
    Current evidence suggests that volitional opening or closing of the eyes modulates brain activity and connectivity. However, how the eye state influences the functional connectivity of the primary visual cortex has been ...
  • Ventura Campos, Noelia; Sanjuán, Ana; González, Julio; Palomar García, María Ángeles; Rodríguez Pujadas, Aina; Sebastián Gallés, Núria; Deco, Gustavo; Ávila, César (Society for Neuroscience, 2013)
    Can learning capacity of the human brain be predicted from initial spontaneous functional connectivity (FC) between brain areas involved in a task? We combined task-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and ...
  • Morís Fernández, Luis, 1982-; Visser, Maya; Ventura Campos, Noelia; Ávila, César; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2015)
    The interplay between attention and multisensory integration has proven to be a difficult question to tackle./nThere are almost as many studies showing that multisensory integration occurs independently from the focus/nof ...
