  1. Jose O. Maximo, Christopher L. Keown, Aarti Nair & Ralph-Axel Müller (2013). Approaches to Local Connectivity in Autism Using Resting State Functional Connectivity MRI. Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 7.
    While the literature on aberrant long-distance connectivity in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has grown fast over the past decade, little is know about local connectivity. We used regional homogeneity (ReHo) and local density approaches at different spatial scales to examine local connectivity in 29 children and adolescents with ASD and 29 matched typically developing participants, using resting state functional MRI data. Across a total of 12 analysis pipelines, the gross pattern of between-group findings was overall stable, with local overconnectivity in (...)

  2. Ralph-Axel Müller (2006). Blackboards in the Brain. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (1):81-81.
    Although van der Velde's de Kamps's (vdV&dK) attempt to put syntactic processing into a broader context of combinatorial cognition is promising, their coverage of neuroscientific evidence is disappointing. Neither their case against binding by temporal coherence nor their arguments against recurrent neural networks are compelling. As an alternative, vdV&dK propose a blackboard model that is based on the assumption of special processors (e.g., lexical versus grammatical), but evidence from the cognitive neuroscience of language, which is, overall, less than supportive of (...)

  3. Ralph-Axel Müller (2002). Weak Evidence for a Strong Case Against Modularity in Developmental Disorders. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):764-765.
    Thomas & Karmiloff-Smith (T&K-S) provide evidence from computational modeling against modular assumptions of “Residual Normality” (RN) in developmental disorders. Even though I agree with their criticism, I find their choice of empirical evidence disappointing. Cognitive neuroscience cannot as yet provide a complete understanding of most developmental disorders, but what is known is more than enough to debunk the idea of RN.
