Language Switching Across Modalities: Evidence From Bimodal Bilinguals.
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, & Cognition, 2017)
This study investigated whether language control during language production in bilinguals generalizes across modalities, and to what extent the language control system is shaped by competition for the same articulators. ...
Brain-to-brain entrainment: EEG interbrain synchronization while speaking and listening
(Scientific Reports, 2017)
Electroencephalographic hyperscanning was used to investigate interbrain synchronization patterns in dyads of participants interacting through speech. Results show that brain oscillations are synchronized between listener ...
Disentangling meaning in the brain: Left temporal involvement in agreement processing
Sentence comprehension is successfully accomplished by means of a form-to-meaning mapping procedure that relies on the extraction of morphosyntactic information from the input and its mapping to higher-level semantic–discourse ...
Why space is not one-dimensional: Location may be categorical and imagistic
(Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 2017)
In our commentary, we raise concerns with the idea that location should be considered a gestural component of sign languages. We argue that psycholinguistic studies provide evidence for location as a “categorical” element ...
Enhancing reading performance through action video games: the role of visual attention span
(Scientific Reports, 2017)
Recent studies reported that Action Video Game-AVG training improves not only certain attentional components, but also reading fluency in children with dyslexia. We aimed to investigate the shared attentional components ...
Phonological and orthographic coding in deaf skilled readers
Written language is very important in daily life. However, most deaf people do not achieve good reading levels compared to their hearing peers. Previous research has mainly focused on their difficulties when reading in a ...
Reading comprehension and immersion schooling: evidence from component skills
(Developmental Science, 2017)
The present research aims to assess literacy acquisition in children becoming bilingual via second language immersion in school. We adopt a cognitive components approach, assessing text-level reading comprehension, a ...
When the end matters: influence of gender cues during agreement computation in bilinguals
(Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2017)
The present event-related potential (ERP) study was aimed at testing whether form-function mappings can differently affect sentence comprehension in early bilinguals with a range of linguistic profiles. Basque–Spanish ...
Chronset: An automated tool for detecting speech onset
(Behavior Research Methods, 2017)
The analysis of speech onset times has a longstanding tradition in experimental psychology as a measure of how a stimulus influences a spoken response. Yet the lack of accurate automatic methods to measure such ...
The BEST Dataset of Language Proficiency
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2017)
