      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 ...

      How are visual words represented? Insights from EEG-based visual word decoding, feature derivation and image reconstruction 

      Ling, Shouyu; Lee, Andy C. H.; Armstrong, Blair C.; Nestor, Adrian (Human Brain Mapping, 2019)
      Investigations into the neural basis of reading have shed light on the cortical locus and the functional role of visual-orthographic processing. Yet, the fine-grained structure of neural representations subserving reading ...

      How do bilinguals switch between languages in different interactional contexts? A comparison between voluntary and mandatory language switching 

      Jevtović, Mina; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni; de Bruin, Angela (Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2020)
      How bilinguals switch between languages depends on the context. In a voluntary context, bilinguals are free to decide when to switch, whereas in a cued context they are instructed when to switch. While using two languages ...

      How Do We Keep Information ‘Online’? 

      Soto, David (Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 2017)
      New magnetoencephalography (MEG) results indicate that a putative marker of conscious processes – namely, the global broadcasting of information across large-scale cortical networks – can also operate during the maintenance ...

      How much do visual cues help listeners in perceiving accented speech? 

      Zheng, Yi; Samuel, Arthur G. (Applied Psycholinguistics, 2019)
      It has been documented that lipreading facilitates the understanding of difficult speech, such as noisy speech and time-compressed speech. However, relatively little work has addressed the role of visual information in ...

      How the human brain introspects about one's own episodes of cognitive control 

      Soto, David; Theodoraki, Mona; Paz-Alonso, Pedro M. (cortex, 2018)
      Metacognition refers to our capacity to reflect upon our experiences, thoughts and actions. Metacognition processes are linked to cognitive control functions that allow keeping our actions on-task. But it is unclear how ...

      Imageability ratings across languages 

      Rofes, Adrià; Zakariás, Lilla; Ceder, Klaudia; Lind, Marianne; Johansson, Monica Blom; Bjekié, Jovana; Fyndanis, Valantis; Gavarró, Anna; Simonsen, Hanne Gram; Hernández Sacristán, Carlos; Kambanaros, Maria; Kuvač Kraljević, Jelena; Martínez-Ferreiro, Silvia; Mavis, İlknur; Méndez Orellana, Carolina; Sör, Ingrid; Lukács, Ágnes; Tunçer, Müge; Vuksanović, Jasmina; Munarriz Ibarrola, Amaia; Pourquie, Marie; Varlokosta, Spyridoula; Howard, David (Behavior Research Methods, 2018)
      Imageability is a psycholinguistic variable that indicates how well a word gives rise to a mental image or sensory experience. Imageability ratings are used extensively in psycholinguistic, neuropsychological, and ...

      Implementing EEG hyperscanning setups 

      Barraza, Paulo; Dumas, Guillaume; Liu, Huanhuan; Blanco-Gomez, Gabriel; van den Heuvel, Marion I.; Baart, Martijn; Pérez, Alejandro (MethodsX, 2019)
      Hyperscanning refers to obtaining simultaneous neural recordings from more than one person (Montage et al., 2002 [1]), that can be used to study interactive situations. In particular, hyperscanning with Electroencephalography ...

      Improved memory for information learnt before alcohol use in social drinkers tested in a naturalistic setting 

      Carlyle, Molly; Dumay, Nicolas; Roberts, Karen; McAndrew, Amy; Tobias, Stevens; Lawn, Will; Morgan, Celia J. A. (Scientific Reports, 2017)
      Alcohol is known to facilitate memory if given after learning information in the laboratory; we aimed to investigate whether this effect can be found when alcohol is consumed in a naturalistic setting. Eighty-eight social ...

      Improving the signal detection accuracy of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging 

      Janssen, Niels; Hernández-Cabrera, Juan A.; Ezama Foronda, Laura (NeuroImage, 2018)
      A major drawback of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) concerns the lack of detection accuracy of the measured signal. Although this limitation stems in part from the neuro-vascular nature of the fMRI signal, it ...

      Infants use phonetic detail in speech perception and word learning when detail is easy to perceive 

      Escudero, Paola; Kalashnikova, Marina (Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 2020)
      Infants successfully discriminate speech sound contrasts that belong to their native language’s phonemic inventory in auditory-only paradigms, but they encounter difficulties in distinguishing the same contrasts in the ...

      Infant‐directed speech to infants at risk for dyslexia: A novel cross‐dyad design 

      Kalashnikova, Marina; Goswami, Usha; Burnham, Denis (Infancy, 2020)
      When mothers speak to infants at risk for developmental dyslexia, they do not hyperarticulate vowels in their infant‐directed speech (IDS). Here, we used an innovative cross‐dyad design to investigate whether the absence ...

      Inhibitory Control for Emotional and Neutral Scenes in Competition: An Eye-Tracking Study in Bipolar Disorder 

      García-Blanco, Ana; Salmerón, Ladislao; Perea, Manuel (Biological Psychology, 2017)
      This study examined the inhibitory control of attention to social scenes in manic, depressive, and euthymic episodes of bipolar disorder (BD). Two scenes were simultaneously presented (happy/threatening/neutral [target] ...

      Integrating Bilingualism, Verbal Fluency, and Executive Functioning across the Lifespan 

      Zeng, Zhen; Kalashnikova, Marina; Antoniou, Mark (Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019)
      Bilingual experience has an impact on an individual’s linguistic processing and general cognitive abilities. The relation between these linguistic and non-linguistic domains, in turn, is mediated by individual linguistic ...
