      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 ...

      Does consonant–vowel skeletal structure play a role early in lexical processing? Evidence from masked priming 

      Perea, Manuel; Marcet, Ana; Acha, Joana (Applied Psycholinguistics, 2018)
      Is the specific consonant–vowel (CV) letter combination of a word a basic source of information for lexical access in the early stages of processing? We designed two masked priming lexical decision experiments to respond ...

      Does incidental sequence learning allow us to better manage upcoming conflicting events? 

      Jiménez, Luis; Abrahamse, Elger; Méndez, Cástor; Braem, Senne (Psychological Research, 2020)
      Recent proposals emphasize the role of learning in empirical markers of conflict adaptation. Some of these proposals are rooted in the assumption that contingency learning works not only on stimulus–response events but ...

      Does learning a language in the elderly enhance switching ability? 

      Ramos, Sara; Fernández García, Yuriem; Antón Ustaritz, Eneko; Casaponsa, Aina; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni (Journal of Neurolinguistics, 2017)
      The bilingual advantage has been subject of research repeatedly over the last decade. Many studies have supported the idea of the existence of a higher functioning in domain general cognitive abilities among bilingual ...

      Does letter rotation slow down orthographic processing in word recognition? 

      Perea, Manuel; Marcet, Ana; Fernández-López, María (Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 2018)
      Leading neural models of visual word recognition assume that letter rotation slows down the conversion of the visual input to a stable orthographic representation (e.g., local detectors combination model; Dehaene, Cohen, ...

      Does Location Uncertainty in Letter Position Coding Emerge Because of Literacy Training? 

      Perea, Manuel; Jiménez, María; Gómez, Pablo (Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016)
      In the quest to unveil the nature of the orthographic code, a useful strategy is to examine the transposed-letter effect (e.g., JUGDE is more confusable with its base word, JUDGE, than the replacement-letter nonword ...

      Does seeing an Asian face make speech sound more accented? 

      Zheng, Yi; Samuel, Arthur G. (Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics, 2017)
      Prior studies have reported that seeing an Asian face makes American English sound more accented. The current study investigates whether this effect is perceptual, or if it instead occurs at a later decision stage. We ...

      Does the Visual Attention Span Play a Role in Reading in Arabic? 

      Lallier, Marie; Abu Mallouh, Reem; Mohammed, Ahmed M.; Khalifa, Batoul; Perea, Manuel; Carreiras, Manuel (Scientific Studies of Reading, 2018)
      It is unclear whether the association between the visual attention (VA) span and reading differs across languages. Here we studied this relationship in Arabic, where the use of specific reading strategies depends on the ...

      Does the visual attention span play a role in the morphological processing of orthographic stimuli? 

      Antzaka, Alexia; Acha, Joana; Carreiras, Manuel; Lallier, Marie (Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 2019)
      We investigated whether the link between visual attention (VA) span and reading is modulated by the presence of morphemes. Second and fourth grade children, with Basque as their first language, named morphologically complex ...

      Does visual letter similarity modulate masked form priming in young readers of Arabic? 

      Perea, Manuel; Abu Mallouh, Reem; Mohammed, Ahmed; Khalifa, Batoul; Carreiras, Manuel (Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 2018)
      We carried out a masked priming lexical decision experiment to study whether visual letter similarity plays a role during the initial phases of word processing in young readers of Arabic (fifth graders). Arabic is ideally ...

      Domain-general and domain-specific computations in single word processing 

      Klimovich-Gray, Anastasia; Bozic, Mirjana (NeuroImage, 2019)
      Language comprehension relies on a multitude of domain-general and domain-specific cognitive operations. This study asks whether the domain-specific grammatical computations are obligatorily invoked whenever we ...

      Dorsal anterior cingulate-brainstem ensemble as a reinforcement meta-learner 

      Silvetti, Massimo; Vassena, Eliana; Abrahamse, Elger L.; Verguts, Tom (PLOS Computational Biology, 2018)
      Optimal decision-making is based on integrating information from several dimensions of decisional space (e.g., reward expectation, cost estimation, effort exertion). Despite considerable empirical and theoretical efforts, ...

      Dynamic EEG analysis during language comprehension reveals interactive cascades between perceptual processing and sentential expectations 

      Sarrett, McCall E.; McMurray, Bob; Kapnoula, Efthymia C. (Brain and Language, 2020)
      Understanding spoken language requires analysis of the rapidly unfolding speech signal at multiple levels: acoustic, phonological, and semantic. However, there is not yet a comprehensive picture of how these levels relate. ...

      Early and late indications of item-specific control in a Stroop mouse tracking study 

      Bundt, Carsten; Ruitenberg, Marit F. L.; Abrahamse, Elger L.; Notebaert, Wim (PLoS ONE, 2018)
      Previous studies indicated that cognitive conflict continues to bias actions even after a movement has been initiated. The present paper examined whether cognitive control also biases actions after movement initiation. ...

      Early dissociation of numbers and letters in the human brain 

      Aurtenetxe, Sara; Molinaro, Nicola; Davidson, Doug; Carreiras, Manuel (Cortex, 2020)
      Numbers and letters are culturally created symbols which are learned through repeated training. This experience leads to a functional specialization of the perceptual system of our brain. Recent evidence suggests a neural ...

      Effect of deep brain stimulation on vocal motor control mechanisms in Parkinson's disease 

      Behroozmand, Roozbeh; Johari, Karim; Kelley, Ryan M.; Kapnoula, Efthymia C.; Narayanan, Nandakumar S.; Greenleef, Jeremy D.W. (Parkinsonism and Related Disorders, 2019)

      Effect of interstimulus interval on cortical proprioceptive responses to passive finger movements 

      Smeds, Eero; Piitulainen, Harri; Bourguignon, Mathieu; Jousm€ak, Veikko; Har, Riitta (European Journal of Neuroscience, 2017)
      Shortening of the interstimulus interval (ISI) generally leads to attenuation of cortical sensory responses. For proprioception, however, this ISI effect is still poorly known. Our aim was to characterize the ISI dependence ...

      Blanco, Borja; Molnar, Monika; Caballero Gaudes, César (Neurophotonics, 2018)
      Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) offers the potential to characterize resting-state functional connectivity (RSFC) in populations that are not easily assessed otherwise, such as young infants. In addition to the advantages ...

      Effects of age on inhibitory control are affected by task-specific features 

      de Bruin, Angela; Della Sala, Sergio (Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 2018)
      Older adults have been argued to have impoverished inhibitory control compared to younger adults. However, these effects of age may depend on processing speed and their manifestation may furthermore depend on the type of ...
