How Do We Keep Information ‘Online’?
(Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 2017)
New magnetoencephalography (MEG) results indicate that a putative marker of conscious processes – namely, the global broadcasting of information across large-scale cortical networks – can also operate during the maintenance ...
Cross-Linguistic Differences in Bilinguals’ Fundamental Frequency Ranges
(Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research, 2017)
Purpose We investigated cross-linguistic differences in fundamental frequency range (FFR) in Welsh-English bilingual speech. This is the first study that reports gender-specific behavior in switching FFRs across languages ...
MEG Insight into the Spectral Dynamics Underlying Steady Isometric Muscle Contraction
(The Journal of Neuroscience, 2017)
To gain fundamental knowledge on how the brain controls motor actions, we studied in detail the interplay between MEG signals from the primary sensorimotor (SM1) cortex and the contraction force of 17 healthy adult humans ...
Morphological Variability in Second Language Learners: An Examination of Electrophysiological and Production Data
(Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2017)
We examined sources of morphological variability in second language (L2) learners of Spanish whose native language (L1) is English, with a focus on L1-L2 similarity, morphological markedness, and knowledge type (receptive ...
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 ...
Progression from selective to general involvement of hippocampal subfields in schizophrenia
(Molecular Psychiatry, 2017)
Volume deficits of the hippocampus in schizophrenia have been consistently reported. However, the hippocampus is anatomically heterogeneous; it remains unclear whether certain portions of the hippocampus are affected more ...
Hierarchical levels of representation in language prediction: The influence of first language acquisition in highly proficient bilinguals
Language comprehension is largely supported by predictive mechanisms that account for the ease and speed with which communication unfolds. Both native and proficient non-native speakers can efficiently handle contextual ...
Evidence for a bimodal bilingual disadvantage in letter fluency
(Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2017)
Many bimodal bilinguals are immersed in a spoken language-dominant environment from an early age and, unlike unimodal bilinguals, do not necessarily divide their language use between languages. Nonetheless, early ASL–English ...
The BEST dataset of language proficiency
Towards a theory of individual differences in statistical learning
(Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences, 2017)
In recent years, statistical learning (SL) research has seen a growing interest in tracking individual performance in SL tasks, mainly as a predictor of linguistic abilities. We review studies from this line of research ...
