      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 ...

      Emmorey, Karen; Giezen, Marcel R.; Gollan, Tamar H. (Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2016)
      The commentaries on our Keynote article “Psycholinguistic, cognitive, and neural implications of bimodal bilingualism” were enthusiastic about what can be learned by studying bilinguals who acquire two languages that are ...

      Interactions between native and non-native vowels in French-Danish contact: production training study 

      Kartushina, Natalia (Romance-Germanic Bilingual Phonology. Equinox eBooks Publishing, United Kingdom., 2017)
      Speakers who acquire a foreign language (L2) in adulthood (and even earlier), often experience major difficulties in producing non-native speech sounds, a phenomenon commonly known as having a foreign accent. These ...

      Interactions between phasic alerting and consciousness in the fronto-striatal network 

      Chica, Ana B.; Bayle, Dimitri J.; Botta, Fabiano; Bartolomeo, Paolo; Paz-Alonso, Pedro M. (Scientific Reports, 2016)
      Only a small fraction of all the information reaching our senses can be the object of conscious report or voluntary action. Although some models propose that different attentional states (top-down amplification and ...

      Interventional programmes to improve cognition during healthy and pathological ageing: Cortical modulations and evidence for brain plasticity 

      Cespón, Jesús; Miniussi, Carlo; Pellicciaria, Maria Concetta (Ageing Research Reviews, 2018)
      A growing body of evidence suggests that healthy elderly individuals and patients with Alzheimer’s disease retain an important potential for neuroplasticity. This review summarizes studies investigating the modulation of ...

      Investigating vulnerabilities in grammatical processing of bilinguals 

      Pourquié, Marie; Lacroix, Hugues; Kartushina, Natalia (Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism, 2019)
      Bilinguals show a large gap in their expressive-receptive abilities, in both languages. To date, most studies have examined lexical processing. The current study aimed to assess comprehension and production of verb ...

      Is Bilingualism Associated With Enhanced Executive Functioning in Adults? A Meta-Analytic Review 

      Lehtonen, Minna; Soveri, Anna; Laine, Aini; Järvenpää, Janica; de Bruin, Angela (Psychological Bulletin, 2018)
      Because of enduring experience of managing two languages, bilinguals have been argued to develop superior executive functioning compared with monolinguals. Despite extensive investigation, there is, however, no consensus ...

      Is conscious awareness needed for all working memory processes? 

      Soto, David; Silvanto, Juha (Neuroscience of Consciousness, 2016)
      Stein and colleagues argue there is no yet conclusive evidence for nonconscious working memory (WM) and that is critical to probeWMwhile ensuring null sensitivity to memory cues. While this stringent approach reduces the ...

      Is speech recognition automatic? Lexical competition, but not initial lexical access, requires cognitive resources 

      Zhang, Xujin; Samuel, Arthur G. (Journal of Memory and Language, 2018)
      Current models of spoken word recognition suggest that multiple lexical candidates are activated in parallel upon hearing an utterance, with these lexical hypotheses competing with each other for recognition. The current ...

      Is the Hebb repetition task a reliable measure of individual differences in sequence learning? 

      Bogaerts, Louisa; Siegelman, Noam; Ben-Porat, Tali; Frost, Ram (QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY, 2018)
      The Hebb repetition task, an operationalization of long-term sequence learning through repetition, is the focus of renewed interest, as it is taken to provide a laboratory analogue for naturalistic vocabulary acquisition. ...

      Is the LAN effect in morphosyntactic processing an ERP artifact? 

      Caffarra, Sendy; Mendoza, Martha; Davidson, Douglas J. (Brain and Language, 2019)
      The left anterior negativity (LAN) is an ERP component that has been often associated with morphosyntactic processing, but recent reports have questioned whether the LAN effect, in fact, exists. The present project examined ...

      Is there a common oscillatory brain mechanism for producing and predicting language? 

      Molinaro, Nicola; Monsalve, Irene F.; Lizarazu, Mikel (Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2016)
      Recent proposals have suggested that language prediction is supported by the neurophysiological mechanisms involved in language production. Both prediction and production in language imply information processing percolating ...

      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 ...

      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 ...
