Brain functional connectivity in individuals with callosotomy and agenesis of the corpus callosum: a systematic review
Publication date: Available online 11 August 2019Source: Neuroscience & Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Lorenzo Mancuso, Lucina Q. Uddin, Andrea Nani, Tommaso Costa, Franco CaudaAbstractIn the absence of the corpus callosum due to either surgical transection or congenital agenesis, the interhemispheric exchange of information is disrupted, as emphasized by several clinical studies. In such cases, a reduction of interhemispheric functional connectivity, that is, an increased independence of the functional signals of the two disconnected hemispheres, is expected to occur. A growing literature has investigated this hypoth...

Implicit guidance of attention in contextual cueing: Neuropsychological and developmental evidence
Publication date: Available online 7 August 2019Source: Neuroscience & Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Yuhong V. Jiang, Caitlin A. Sisk, Yi Ni TohAbstractWhen searching for an object in a familiar environment, we may automatically orient to locations where this object was often placed previously. Contextual cueing refers to the guidance of attention by repeated search context. As an implicit mechanism with high capacity, contextual cueing may be important for people whose cognitive function is compromised, immature, or in decline. Here we review and synthesize the last two decades of research on contextual cueing, focu...

Reframing schizophrenia and autism as bodily self-consciousness disorders leading to a deficit of theory of mind and empathy with social communication impairments
In conclusion, a new model is proposed integrating results of studies presented here and stating the existence of bodily self-consciousness disorders in schizophrenia and autism associated with altered/absent intermodal sensory integration (especially visual-kinesthetic-tactile integration). This would result in problems of self-other differentiation, leading in turn to a deficit of theory of mind and empathy as well as social communication impairments. This model opens new perspectives to understand better self-consciousness disorders and social communication impairments in schizophrenia and ASD and to develop therapeutic...
