      Who are you talking to? The role of addressee identity in utterance comprehension 

      Caffarra, Sendy; Wolpert, Max; Scarinci, Dana; Mancini, Simona (Psychophysiology, 2020)
      Experimental evidence suggests that speaker and addressee quickly adapt to each other from the earliest moments of sentence processing, and that interlocutor-related information is rapidly integrated with other sources ...

      Why space is not one-dimensional: Location may be categorical and imagistic 

      Giezen, Marcel R.; Costello, Brendan; Carreiras, Manuel (Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 2017)
      In our commentary, we raise concerns with the idea that location should be considered a gestural component of sign languages. We argue that psycholinguistic studies provide evidence for location as a “categorical” element ...

      Widening agreement processing: a matter of time, features and distance 

      Biondo, Nicoletta; Luigi Rizzi, Francesco Vespignani; Mancini, Simona (Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2018)
      Existing psycholinguistic models typically describe agreement relations as monolithic phenomena amounting to mechanisms that check mere feature consistency. This eye-tracking study aimed at widening this perspective by ...

      Word and object recognition during reading acquisition: MEGevidence 

      Caffarra, Sendy; Martin, Clara D.; Lizarazu, Mikel; Lallier, Marie; Zarraga, Asier (Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, 2017)
      Studies on adults suggest that reading-induced brain changes might not be limited to linguistic processes. It is still unclear whether these results can be generalized to reading development. The present study shows to ...

      Working Memory Deficits After Lesions Involving the Supplementary Motor Area. 

      Cañas, Alba; Juncadella, Montserrat; Lau, Ruth; Gabarrós, Andreu; Hernández, Mireia (Frontiers in Psychology, 2018)
      The Supplementary Motor Area (SMA)—located in the superior and medial aspects of the superior frontal gyrus—is a preferential site of certain brain tumors and arteriovenous malformations, which often provoke the so-called ...

      World knowledge and novel information integration during L2 speech comprehension 

      Romero-Rivas, Carlos; Corey, Joanna D.; Garcia, Xavier; Thierry, Guillaume; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert (Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2017)
      In this study we explore whether world knowledge (WK) processing differs between individuals listening to their native (L1) or their non-native (L2) language. We recorded event-related brain potentials in L1 and L2 speakers ...

      World knowledge integration during second language comprehension 

      Martin, Clara D.; Garcia, Xavier; Breton, Audrey; Thierry, Guillaume; Costa, Albert (Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2016)
      In order to study the difficulties experienced during sentence comprehension in a foreign language (L2), we investigated semantic and world knowledge information retrieval in L2 comprehenders. Event-related potentials ...

      Written sentence context effects on acoustic-phonetic perception: fMRI reveals cross-modal semantic-perceptual interactions 

      Guediche, Sara; Zhu, Yuli; Minicucci, Domenic; Blumstein, Sheila E. (Brain and Language, 2019)
      This study examines cross-modality effects of a semantically-biased written sentence context on the perception of an acoustically-ambiguous word target identifying neural areas sensitive to interactions between sentential ...

      Zooming in on zooming out: Partial selectivity and dynamic tuning of bilingual language control during reading 

      Hoversten, Liv J.; Traxler, Matthew J. (Cognition, 2020)
      Prominent models of bilingual visual word recognition posit a bottom-up nonselective view of lexical processing with parallel access to lexical candidates of both languages. However, these accounts do not accommodate recent ...
