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 ...
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 ...
Functional Dynamics of Dorsal and Ventral Reading Networks in Bilinguals
(Cerebral Cortex, 2017)
In today’s world, bilingualism is increasingly common. However, it is still unclear how left-lateralized dorsal and ventral reading networks are tuned to reading in proficient second-language learners. Here, we investigated ...
Cross-modal noise compensation in audiovisual words
(Scientific Reports, 2017)
Perceiving linguistic input is vital for human functioning, but the process is complicated by the fact that the incoming signal is often degraded. However, humans can compensate for unimodal noise by relying on simultaneous ...
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 ...

The BEST Dataset of Language Proficiency
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2017)
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 ...
