Feasibility and initial efficacy of a cognitive-behavioural group programme for managing anger and aggressiveness after traumatic brain injury

Aboulafia-Brakha, T. ; Buschbeck, C. Greber ; Rochat, L. ; Annoni, Jean-Marie

In: Neuropsychological Rehabilitation: An International Journal, 2013, vol. 23, no. 2, p. 216-233

This study assesses the feasibility of a cognitive-behavioural group programme for treating anger and aggressiveness after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Five feasibility criteria were considered: demand, implementation, practicality, acceptability and initial efficacy. A self-report questionnaire of aggressiveness (AQ-12) was administered before the intervention (T1), one week following the...

Neurocognitive aspects of translation

Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Lee-Jahnke, Hannelore ; Sturm, Annegret

In: Meta, 2012, vol. 57, no. 1, p. 96-107

Translation is at the centre of many cognitive domains such as pedagogy, linguistic, pragmatic, neurosciences, and social cognition. This multi-domain aspect is reflected in the current models of translation. Recently, cognitive neurosciences have unraveled some brain mechanisms in the bilingualism domain, and it is quite logical to transfer such knowledge to the field of translation as well as...

Long-term effects of cannabis on brain structure

Battistella, Giovanni ; Fornari, Eleonora ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Chtioui, Haithem ; Dao, Kim ; Fabritius, Marie ; Favrat, Bernard ; Mall, Jean-Frédéric ; Maeder, Philippe ; Giroud, Christian

In: Neuropsychopharmacology, 2014, p. -

The dose-dependent toxicity of the main psychoactive component of cannabis in brain regions rich in cannabinoid CB1 receptors is well known in animal studies. However, research in humans does not show common findings across studies regarding the brain regions that are affected after long-term exposure to cannabis. In the present study, we investigate (using Voxel-based Morphometry) gray matter...

Weed or wheel! FMRI, behavioural, and toxicological investigations of how cannabis smoking affects skills necessary for driving

Battistella, Giovanni ; Fornari, Eleonora ; Thomas, Aurélien ; Mall, Jean-Frédéric ; Chtioui, Haithem ; Appenzeller, Monique ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Favrat, Bernard ; Maeder, Philippe ; Giroud, Christian

In: PLoS ONE, 2013, vol. 8, no. 1, p. e52545

Marijuana is the most widely used illicit drug, however its effects on cognitive functions underling safe driving remain mostly unexplored. Our goal was to evaluate the impact of cannabis on the driving ability of occasional smokers, by investigating changes in the brain network involved in a tracking task. The subject characteristics, the percentage of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in the joint, and...

Investigating post-stroke fatigue: An individual participant data meta-analysis

B.Cumming, Toby ; Yeo, Ai Beng ; Marquez, Jodie ; Churilov, Leonid ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Badaru, Umaru ; Ghotbi, Nastaran ; Harbison, Joe ; Kwakkel, Gert ; Lerdal, Anners ; Mills, Roger ; Naess, Halvor ; Nyland, Harald ; Schmid, Arlene ; Tang, Wai Kwong ; Tseng, Benjamin ; Port, Ingridvan de ; Mead, Gillian ; English, Coralie

In: Journal of Psychosomatic Research, 2018, vol. 113, p. 107–112

The prevalence of post-stroke fatigue differs widely across studies, and reasons for such divergence are unclear. We aimed to collate individual data on post-stroke fatigue from multiple studies to facilitate high-powered meta-analysis, thus increasing our understanding of this complex phenomenon.Methods: We conducted an Individual Participant Data (IPD) meta-analysis on post-stroke fatigue...

Neural correlates of maladaptive pain behavior in chronic neck pain - a single case control fMRI study

Beinert, Konstantin ; Mouthon, Audrey ; Keller, Martin ; Mouthon, Michael ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Taube, Wolfgang

In: Pain Physician, 2017, vol. 20, no. 1, p. E115–E125

Chronic neck pain patients display functional impairments like decreased range of motion, decreased strength, and reduced sensorimotor function. In patients without structural damage, the reason for the persistence of pain is not well understood. Therefore, it is assumed that in chronic pain states, memory processes play an important role. We have now detected and tested a patient that might...

Balanced bilinguals favor lexical processing in their opaque language and conversion system in their shallow language

Buetler, Karin A. ; Rodríguez, Diego de León ; Laganaro, Marina ; Müri, René ; Nyffeler, Thomas ; Spierer, Lucas ; Annoni, Jean-Marie

In: Brain and Language, 2015, vol. 150, p. 166–176

Referred to as orthographic depth, the degree of consistency of grapheme/phoneme correspondences varies across languages from high in shallow orthographies to low in deep orthographies. The present study investigates the impact of orthographic depth on reading route by analyzing evoked potentials to words in a deep (French) and shallow (German) language presented to highly proficient bilinguals....

Language context modulates reading route: an electrical neuroimaging study

Buetler, Karin A. ; Rodríguez, Diego de León ; Laganaro, Marina ; Müri, René ; Spierer, Lucas ; Annoni, Jean-Marie

In: Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 2014, vol. 8, p. article 83

Introduction: The orthographic depth hypothesis (Katz and Feldman, 1983) posits that different reading routes are engaged depending on the type of grapheme/phoneme correspondence of the language being read. Shallow orthographies with consistent grapheme/phoneme correspondences favor encoding via non-lexical pathways, where each grapheme is sequentially mapped to its corresponding phoneme. In...

Experience-based auditory predictions modulate brain activity to silence as do real sounds

Chouiter, Leila ; Tzovara, Athina ; Dieguez, Sebastian ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Magezi, David ; De Lucia, Marzia ; Spierer, Lucas

In: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2015, vol. 27, no. 10, p. 1968–1980

Interactions between stimuli's acoustic features and experience-based internal models of the environment enable listeners to compensate for the disruptions in auditory streams that are regularly encountered in noisy environments. However, whether auditory gaps are filled in predictively or restored a posteriori remains unclear. The current lack of positive statistical evidence that internal...

High and low stimulus-driven conflict engage segregated brain networks, not quantitatively different resources

Chouiter, Leila ; Dieguez, Sebastian ; Annoni, Jean-Marie ; Spierer, Lucas

In: Brain Topography, 2014, vol. 27, no. 2, p. 279–292

Task-irrelevant information is constantly present in our environment and may interfere with the processing of the information necessary to achieve goal-directed behavior. While task goals determine which information must be suppressed, the demand for inhibitory control depends on the strength of the interference induced by incoming, task-irrelevant information. Whether the same or distinct...
