      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 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 ...

      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 ...
