The effect of orthographic depth on letter string processing: the case of visual attention span and rapid automatized naming
(Reading and Writing, 2018)
The present study investigated whether orthographic depth can increase the bias towards multi-letter processing in two reading-related skills: visual attention span (VAS) and rapid automatized naming (RAN). VAS (i.e., the ...
Effects of subject-case marking on agreement processing: ERP evidence from Basque
Previous cross-linguistic research has found that comprehenders are immediately sensitive to various kinds of agreement violations across languages. We focused on Basque, a verb-final ergative language with both subjecteverb ...
Tracing the interplay between syntactic and lexical features: fMRI evidence from agreement comprehension
The current fMRI study was designed to investigate whether the processing of different gender-related cues embedded in nouns affects the computation of agreement dependencies and, if so, where this possible interaction ...
The consequences of literacy and schooling for parsing strings
(Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2018)
Word processing initially occurs through letter-by-letter parsing at early stages of reading development. Here we investigated the role of literacy in parsing both linguistic and non-linguistic strings, as well as the ...
Online Adaptation to Altered Auditory Feedback Is Predicted by Auditory Acuity and Not by Domain-General Executive Control Resources
(Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 2018)
When a speaker's auditory feedback is altered, he adapts for the perturbation by altering his own production, which demonstrates the role of auditory feedback in speech motor control. In the present study, we explored the ...
The specificity of the neural response to speech at birth
In this work we ask whether at birth, the human brain responds uniquely to speech, or if similar activation also occurs to a non-speech surrogate ‘language’. We compare neural activation in newborn infants to the language ...
Cross-linguistic transfer in bilinguals reading in two alphabetic orthographies: The grain size accommodation hypothesis
(Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 2018)
Reading acquisition is one of the most complex and demanding learning processes faced by children in their first years of schooling. If reading acquisition is challenging in one language, how is it when reading is acquired ...
Genetic association study of dyslexia and ADHD candidate genes in a Spanish cohort: Implications of comorbid samples
(PLOS ONE, 2018)
Dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are two complex neuro-behaviorally disorders that co-occur more often than expected, so that reading disability has been linked to inattention symptoms. We ...
SPALEX: A Spanish Lexical Decision Database From a Massive Online Data Collection
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2018)
Neural correlates of phonological, orthographic and semantic reading processing in dyslexia
(NeuroImage: Clinical, 2018)
Developmental dyslexia is one of the most prevalent learning disabilities, thought to be associated with dysfunction in the neural systems underlying typical reading acquisition. Neuroimaging research has shown that readers ...
