      A genealogical map of the concept of habit 

      Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Di Paolo, Ezequiel (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-21)
      The notion of information processing has dominated the study of the mind for over six decades. However, before the advent of cognitivism, one of the most prominent theoretical ideas was that of Habit. This is a concept ...

      Cross-language and cross-modal activation in hearing bimodal bilinguals 

      Villameriel, Saúl; Dias, Patricia; Costello, Brendan; Carreiras, Manuel (Journal of Memory and Language, 2016)
      This study investigates cross-language and cross-modal activation in bimodal bilinguals. Two groups of hearing bimodal bilinguals, natives (Experiment 1) and late learners (Experiment 2), for whom spoken Spanish is their ...

      Do handwritten words magnify lexical effects in visual word recognition? 

      Perea, Manuel; Gil-López, Cristina; Beléndez, Victoria; Carreiras, Manuel (The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 2016)
      An examination of how the word recognition system is able to process handwritten words is fundamental to formulate a comprehensive model of visual word recognition. Previous research has revealed that the magnitude of ...

      Does bilingualism shape inhibitory control in the elderly? 

      Antón Ustaritz, Eneko; Fernández García, Yuriem; Carreiras, Manuel; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni (Journal of Memory and Language, 2016)
      Bilingualism has been argued to benefit executive functioning. However, recent research suggests that this advantage may stem from uncontrolled factors or incorrectly matched samples. In this study we test the effects of ...

      Increased opioid dependence in a mouse model of panic disorder 

      Gallego, Xabier; Murtra, Patricia; Zamalloa Echevarría, Teresa; Canals, Josep Maria; Pineda Ortíz, Joseba Gotzon; Amador Arjona, Alejandro; Maldonado, Rafael; Dierssen, Mara (Frontiers Research Fundation, 2010-02-22)
      [EN] Panic disorder is a highly prevalent neuropsychiatric disorder that shows co-occurrence with substance abuse. Here, we demonstrate that TrkC, the high-affinity receptor for neurotrophin-3, is a key molecule involved ...

      Learning to perceive in the sensor motor approach: Piaget's theory of equilibration interpreted dynamically 

      Di Paolo, Ezequiel; Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio; Beaton, Michael James Stuart; Buhrmann, Thomas (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-07-30)
      Learning to perceive is faced with a classical paradox: if understanding is required for perception, how can we learn to perceive something new, something we do not yet understand? According to the sensorimotor approach, ...

      Lexical organization of language-ambiguous and language-specific words in bilinguals 

      Casaponsa, Aina; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni (The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 2016)
      Previous research has shown the importance of sublexical orthographic cues in determining the language of a given word when the two languages of a bilingual reader share the same script. In this study, we explored the ...

      Lexical representations are malleable for about one second: Evidence for the non-automaticity of perceptual recalibration 

      Samuel, Arthur G. (Cognitive Psychology, 2016)
      In listening to speech, people have been shown to apply several types of adjustment to their phonemic categories that take into account variations in the prevailing linguistic environment. These adjustments include ...

      Listeners beware: Speech production may be bad for learning speech sounds 

      Baese-Berk, Melissa M.; Samuel, Arthur G. (Journal of Memory and Language, 2016)
      Spoken language requires individuals to both perceive and produce speech. Because both processes access lexical and sublexical representations, it is commonly assumed that perception and production involve cooperative ...

      Modeling habits as self-sustaining patterns of sensorimotor behavior 

      Egbert, Matthew D; Barandiaran Fernández, Xabier Eugenio (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-08-08)
      In the recent history of psychology and cognitive neuroscience, the notion of habit has been reduced to a stimulus-triggered response probability correlation. In this paper we use a computational model to present an ...

      Prosocial behavior and gender 

      Espinosa Alejos, María Paz; Kovarik, Jaromir (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-04-14)
      This study revisits different experimental data sets that explore social behavior in economic games and uncovers that many treatment effects may be gender-specific. In general, men and women do not differ in "neutral" ...

      Quantifying lip-read-induced suppression and facilitation of the auditory N1 and P2 reveals peak enhancements and delays 

      Baart, Martijn (Psychophysiology, 2016)
      Lip-read speech suppresses and speeds up the auditory N1 and P2 peaks, but these effects are not always observed or reported. Here, the robustness of lip-read-induced N1/P2 suppression and facilitation in phonetically ...

      The interactive brain hypothesis 

      Di Paolo, Ezequiel; De Jaegher, Hanneke (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-06)
      Enactive approaches foreground the role of interpersonal interaction in explanations of social understanding. This motivates, in combination with a recent interest in neuroscientific studies involving actual interactions, ...

      The role of acetaldehyde in the increased acceptance of ethanol after prenatal ethanol exposure 

      Gaztañaga Echeverria, Mirari; Angulo-Alcalde, Asier; Spear, Norman E.; Chotro, M. Gabriela (Merce Correa, Jaume I University, Spain, 2017-01-31)
      Recent studies show that acetaldehyde, the first metabolite in the oxidation of ethanol, can be responsible for both, the appetitive and the aversive effects produced by ethanol intoxication. More specifically, it has been ...
