Basic Composition and Enriched Integration in Idiom Processing: An EEG Study
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2017)
We investigated the extent to which the literal meanings of the words forming literally plausible idioms (e.g., break the ice) are semantically composed and how the idiomatic meaning is integrated in the unfolding sentence ...
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 ...
Amodal Atypical Neural Oscillatory Activity in Dyslexia: A Cross-Linguistic Perspective
(Clinical Psychological Science, 2017)
It has been proposed that atypical neural oscillations in both the auditory and the visual modalities could explain why some individuals fail to learn to read and suffer from developmental dyslexia. However, the role of ...
Hierarchical levels of representation in language prediction: The influence of first language acquisition in highly proficient bilinguals
Language comprehension is largely supported by predictive mechanisms that account for the ease and speed with which communication unfolds. Both native and proficient non-native speakers can efficiently handle contextual ...
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 ...
