Lexical Information Guides Retuning of Neural Patterns in Perceptual Learning for Speech
(Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2020)
A listener's interpretation of a given speech sound can vary probabilistically from moment to moment. Previous experience (i.e., the contexts in which one has encountered an ambiguous sound) can further influence the ...
Quality and denoising in real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging neurofeedback: A methods review
(Human Brain Mapping, 2020)
Neurofeedback training using real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (rtfMRI-NF) allows subjects voluntary control of localised and distributed brain activity. It has sparked increased interest as a promising ...
Cortical tracking of speech in noise accounts for reading strategies in children
(PLOS BIOLOGY, 2020)
Humans’ propensity to acquire literacy relates to several factors, including the ability to understand speech in noise (SiN). Still, the nature of the relation between reading and SiN perception abilities remains poorly ...
Phonemic contrasts under construction? Evidence from Basque
Attunement theories of speech perception development suggest that native-language exposure is one of the main factors shaping infants' phonemic discrimination capacity within the second half of their first year. Here, ...
“Words and emotions in sentence context”: a commentary on Hinojosa, Moreno and Ferré (2019)
(Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, 2020)
Coupling between human brain activity and body movements: Insights from non-invasive electromagnetic recordings
Electroencephalographic and magnetoencephalographic data have characterized two types of brain–body interactions observed during various types of motor actions, “corticokinematic” and “corticomuscular” coupling. Here, we ...
Task switching and bilingualism in young and older adults: A behavioral and electrophysiological investigation
The current study investigated behavioral and electrophysiological (event-related potential; ERP) differences associated with task switching in a sample of young and older monolingual and bilingual adults. ERPs associated ...
Speaker matters: Natural inter-speaker variation affects 4-month-olds’ perception of audio-visual speech
(First Language, 2020)
In the language development literature, studies often make inferences about infants’ speech perception abilities based on their responses to a single speaker. However, there can be significant natural variability across ...
Speech rhythm as naturally occurring and culturally transmitted behavioral patterns
(Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 2019)
Rhythm is fundamental to every motor activity. Neural and physiological mechanisms that underlie rhythmic cognition, in general, and rhythmic pattern generation, in particular, are evolutionarily ancient. As speech production ...
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 ...
