Agreement and illusion of disagreement: An ERP study on Basque
Agreement is a syntactic relation involving a controller (e.g., a noun) and a target with matching inflectional morphology (e.g., a verb). Across languages, electrophysiological studies consistently report that the presence ...
Phase−amplitude coupling between theta and gamma oscillations adapts to speech rate
(Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 2019)
Low- and high-frequency cortical oscillations play an important role in speech processing. Low-frequency neural oscillations in the delta (<4Hz) and theta (4–8 Hz) bands entrain to the prosodic and syllabic rates of speech, ...
Tapping to a beat in synchrony predicts brain print sensitivity in pre-readers
(Brain and Language, 2019)
This longitudinal study was aimed at testing the relation between rhythm sensitivity and behavioural and neural orthographic sensitivity in pre-reading stages. Basque-speaking children performed several behavioural and EEG ...
Any leftovers from a discarded prediction? Evidence from eye-movements during sentence comprehension
(Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2019)
We investigated how listeners use gender-marked adjectives to adjust lexical predictions during sentence comprehension. Participants listened to sentence fragments in Spanish (e.g. “The witch flew to the village on her…”) ...
