I’m Doing Better on My Own: Social Inhibition in Vocabulary Learning in Adults
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2019)
Vocabulary learning is better achieved by children facing a teacher than when presented to the same teacher through video (so-called “video deficit” effect), which has significant implications for toddlers’ education. Since ...
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…”) ...
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 ...
