      Learning and Recognition of a Non-conscious Sequence of Events in Human Primary Visual Cortex 

      Rosenthal, Clive R.; Andrews, Samantha K.; Antoniades, Chrystalina A.; Kennard, Christopher; Soto, David (Current Biology, 2016)
      Human primary visual cortex (V1) has long been associated with learning simple low-level visual discriminations [1] and is classically considered outside of neural systems that support high-level cognitive behavior in ...

      The Anatomy of Non-conscious Recognition Memory 

      Rosenthal, Clive R.; Soto, David (Trends in Neusciences, 2016)
      Cortical regions as early as primary visual cortex have been implicated in recognition memory. Here, we outline the challenges that this presents for neurobiological accounts of recognition memory. We conclude that ...

      Cantero, Jose L.; Iglesias, Juan E.; Van Leemput, Koen; Atienza, Mercedes (The Journals of Gerontology: Series A, 2016)
      Background: Evidence suggests a link between the presence of subjective memory complaints (SMC) and lower volume of the hippocampus, one of the first regions to show neuropathological lesions in Alzheimer’s disease. ...

      Correction of Fat-Water Swaps in Dixon MRI 

      Glocker, Ben; Konukoglu, Ender; Lavdas, Ioannis; Iglesias, Juan Eugenio; Aboagye, Eric O.; Rockall, Andrea G.; Rueckert, Daniel (Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention − MICCAI 2016. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2016)
      The Dixon method is a popular and widely used technique for fat-water separation in magnetic resonance imaging, and today, nearly all scanner manufacturers are offering a Dixon-type pulse sequence that produces scans with ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      Language dominance shapes non-linguistic rhythmic grouping in bilinguals 

      Molnar, Monika; Carreiras, Manuel; Gervain, Judit (Cognition, 2016)
      To what degree non-linguistic auditory rhythm perception is governed by universal biases (e.g., Iambic- Trochaic Law; Hayes, 1995) or shaped by native language experience is debated. It has been proposed that rhythmic ...

      On the nature of consonant/vowel differences in letter position coding: Evidence from developing and adult readers 

      Comesaña, Montserrat; Soares, Ana P.; Marcet, Ana; Perea, Manuel (British Journal of Psychology, 2016)
      In skilled adult readers, transposed-letter effects (jugde-JUDGE) are greater for consonant than for vowel transpositions. These differences are often attributed to phonological rather than orthographic processing. To ...

      Breaking Down the Bilingual Cost in Speech Production 

      Sadat, Jasmin; Martin, Clara D.; Magnuson, James S.; Alario, Françoi-Xabier; Costa, Albert (Cognitive Science, 2016)
      Bilinguals have been shown to perform worse than monolinguals in a variety of verbal tasks. This study investigated this bilingual verbal cost in a large-scale picture-naming study conducted in Spanish. We explored how ...

      Foreign-accented speech modulates linguistic anticipatory processes 

      Romero-Rivas, Carlos; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert (Neuropsychologia, 2016)
      Listeners are able to anticipate upcoming words during sentence comprehension, and, as a result, they also pre-activate semantically related words. In the present study, we aim at exploring whether these anticipatory ...

      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 ...

      Are go/no-go tasks preferable to two-choice tasks in response time experiments with older adults? 

      Perea, Manuel; Devis, Ester; Marcet, Ana; Gomez, Pablo (Journal of Cognitive Psychology, 2016)
      Recent research has shown that, in response time (RT) tasks, the go/no-go response procedure produces faster (and less noisy) RTs and fewer errors than the two-choice response procedure in children, although these ...

      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 ...

      Is VIRTU4L Larger Than VIR7UAL? Automatic Processing of Number Quantity and Lexical Representations in Leet Words 

      García-Orza, Javier; Piñeiro, Ana; Comesaña, Montserrat; Soares, Ana Paula; Perea, Manuel (Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016)
      Recent research has shown that leet words (i.e., words in which some of the letters are replaced by visually similar digits; e.g., VIRTU4L) can be processed as their base words without much cost. However, it remains unclear ...

      When “He” Can Also Be “She”: An ERP Study of Reflexive Pronoun Resolution in Written Mandarin Chinese 

      Su, Jui-Ju; Molinaro, Nicola; Gillon-Dowens, Margaret; Tsai, Pei-Shu; Wu, Denise H.; Carreiras, Manuel (Frontiers in Psychology, 2016)
      The gender information in written Chinese third person pronouns is not symmetrically encoded: the character for “he” (yes, with semantic radical yes, meaning human) is used as a default referring to every individual, while ...

      Altered cross-frequency coupling in resting-state MEG after mild traumatic brain injury 

      Antonakakis, Marios; Dimitriadis, Stavros I.; Zervakis, Michalis; Micheloyannis, Sifis; Rezaie, Roozbeh; Babajani-Ferem, Abbas; Zouridakis, George; Papanicolaou, Andrew C. (International Journal of Psychophysiology, 2016)
      Cross-frequency coupling (CFC) is thought to represent a basic mechanism of functional integration of neural networks across distant brain regions. In this study, we analyzed CFC profiles from resting state Magnetoencephalographic ...

      The neuroanatomy of bilingualism: how to turn a hazy view into the full picture 

      García-Pentón, Lorna; Fernández García, Yuriem; Costello, Brendan; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni; Carreiras, Manuel (Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2016)
      The neuroanatomical bases of bilingualism have recently received intensive attention. However, it is still a matter of debate how the brain structure changes due to bilingual experience since current findings are highly ...

      Stereotypes override grammar: Social knowledge in sentence comprehension 

      Molinaro, Nicola; Su, Jui-Ju; Carreiras, Manuel (Brain & Language, 2016)
      Many studies have provided evidence for the automaticity and immediacy with which stereotypical knowledge affects our behavior. However, less is known about how such social knowledge interacts with linguistic cues during ...
