Paper accepted! Impaired effective connectivity in patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders during gesture-speech integration. Congratulations Adrian

Wroblewski, A., He, Y., & Straube, B. (accepted). Dynamic Causal Modelling suggests impaired effective connectivity in patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders during gesture-speech integration. Schizophrenia Research IF: 4.569 Abstract Integrating visual and auditory information during gesture-speech integration (GSI) is important for successful social communication, which is often impaired in schizophrenia. Several studies suggested the posterior … More Paper accepted! Impaired effective connectivity in patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorders during gesture-speech integration.

New DFG project: Multi-stage integration during co-speech gesture comprehension: a systematic investigation combining EEG and fMRI! Congratulations Yifei

Gesture is a substantial component of interpersonal communication. The processing of speech-related gestures requires the integration of different sensory modalities, i.e., the meaningful combination of auditory and visual input. However, gesture-speech integration (GSI) is not only multisensory in nature, but at a ‘higher’ semantic level. This unique feature has rendered GSI an emerging topic in … More New DFG project: Multi-stage integration during co-speech gesture comprehension: a systematic investigation combining EEG and fMRI!
