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 ...
Out-of-Synchrony Speech Entrainment in Developmental Dyslexia
(Human Brain Mapping, 2016)
Developmental dyslexia is a reading disorder often characterized by reduced awareness of speech units. Whether the neural source of this phonological disorder in dyslexic readers results from the malfunctioning of the ...
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 ...
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 ...
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-Language Modulation of Visual Attention Span: An Arabic-French-Spanish Comparison in Skilled Adult Readers
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2016)
In delineating the amount of orthographic information that can be processed in parallel during a single fixation, the visual attention (VA) span acts as a key component of the reading system. Previous studies focused on ...
Do Diacritical Marks Play a Role at the Early Stages of Word Recognition in Arabic?
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2016)
A crucial question in the domain of visual word recognition is whether letter similarity plays a role in the early stages of visual word processing. Here we focused on Arabic because in this language there are various ...
Cross-linguistic interactions influence reading development in bilinguals: a comparison between early balanced French-Basque and Spanish-Basque bilingual children
(Developmental Science, 2016)
This study investigates whether orthographic consistency and transparency of languages have an impact on the development of reading strategies and reading sub-skills (i.e. phonemic awareness and visual attention span) in ...
The proactive bilingual brain: Using interlocutor identity to generate predictions for language processing
(Scientific Reports, 2016)
The present study investigated the proactive nature of the human brain in language perception. Specifically, we examined whether early proficient bilinguals can use interlocutor identity as a cue for language prediction, ...
