      Hierarchical levels of representation in language prediction: The influence of first language acquisition in highly proficient bilinguals 

      Molinaro, Nicola; Giannelli, Francesco; Caffarra, Sendy; Martin, Clara D. (Cognition, 2017)
      Language comprehension is largely supported by predictive mechanisms that account for the ease and speed with which communication unfolds. Both native and proficient non-native speakers can efficiently handle contextual ...

      High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging reveals nuclei of the human amygdala: manual segmentation to automatic atlas 

      Saygin, Z.M.; Kliemann, D.; Iglesias, J.E.; van der Kouwe, A.J.W.; Boyd, E.; Reuter, M.; Stevens, A.; Van Leemput, K.; McKee, A.; Frosch, M.P.; Fischl, B.; Augustinack, J.C.; for the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (NeuroImage, 2017)
      The amygdala is composed of multiple nuclei with unique functions and connections in the limbic system and to the rest of the brain. However, standard in vivo neuroimaging tools to automatically delineate the amygdala into ...

      Holiday or vacation? The processing of variation in vocabulary across dialects 

      Martin, Clara D.; Garcia, Xavier; Potter, Douglas; Melinger, Alissa; Costa, Albert (Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2016)
      Native speakers with different linguistic backgrounds differ in their usage of language, and particularly in their vocabulary. For instance, British natives would use the word "holiday" when American natives would prefer ...

      How ageing changes the mnemonic bias of visual behaviour 

      Wedmore, Florence; Musil, Sofía; Soto, David (Visual Cognition, 2017)
      Ageing is associated with deficits in cognitive control, including attention and working memory processes. However, how ageing influences the interactions between these cognitive systems is not well understood. The present ...

      How and When Does the Second Language Influence the Production of Native Speech Sounds: A Literature Review 

      Kartushina, Natalia; Frauenfelder, Ulrich H.; Golestani, Narly (Language Learning, 2016)
      In bilinguals and second language learners, the native (L1) and nonnative (L2) languages coexist and interact. The L1 influences L2 production via forward transfer, as is seen with foreign accents. However, language ...
