New paper out: Tune & Asari­dou, Jour­nal of Neuroscience

Our newest mem­ber of the lab, post-­doc Sarah Tune, just pub­lished a review arti­cle in the Jour­nal of Neu­ro­science. The arti­cle appeared in the “Jour­nal Club” sec­tion, where grad­u­ate stu­dents or post-docs are giv­en the chance to write short review pieces.

Stim­u­lat­ing the Seman­tic Net­work: What Can TMS Tell Us about the Roles of the Pos­te­ri­or Mid­dle Tem­po­ral Gyrus and Angu­lar Gyrus?

Sarah and for­mer UCI Brain Cir­cuits col­league Salo­mi Asari­dou com­ment on a recent TMS study by Dav­ey et al. (2015) who inves­ti­gat­ed the role(s) of the mid­dle tem­po­ral gyrus and angu­lar gyrus in the encod­ing and retrieval of seman­tic infor­ma­tion. Sarah and Salo­mi review and dis­cuss some of the fac­tors that lim­it the inter­pre­ta­tion of rTMS-induced behav­ioral changes in seman­tic judge­ment tasks. Con­clud­ing, they argue that a focus on neur­al net­works and mech­a­nis­tic prin­ci­ples is key to under­stand­ing the neur­al imple­men­ta­tion of seman­tic cognition.
