Correction of Fat-Water Swaps in Dixon MRI
(Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention − MICCAI 2016. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2016)
The Dixon method is a popular and widely used technique for fat-water separation in magnetic resonance imaging, and today, nearly all scanner manufacturers are offering a Dixon-type pulse sequence that produces scans with ...
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 ...
Blue-Enriched Light Enhances Alertness but Impairs Accurate Performance in Evening Chronotypes Driving in the Morning
(Frontiers Psychology, 2018)
Attention maintenance is highly demanding and typically leads to vigilance decrement along time on task. Therefore, performance in tasks involving vigilance maintenance for long periods, such as driving, tends to deteriorate ...
Relative Salience of Speech Rhythm and Speech Rate on Perceived Foreign Accent in a Second Language
(Language and Speech, 2017)
We investigated the independent contribution of speech rate and speech rhythm to perceived foreign accent. To address this issue we used a resynthesis technique that allows neutralizing segmental and tonal idiosyncrasies ...
Prediction of Agreement and Phonetic Overlap Shape Sublexical Identification
(Language and Speech, 2017)
The mapping between the physical speech signal and our internal representations is rarely straightforward. When faced with uncertainty, higher-order information is used to parse the signal and because of this, the lexicon ...
World knowledge and novel information integration during L2 speech comprehension
(Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2017)
In this study we explore whether world knowledge (WK) processing differs between individuals listening to their native (L1) or their non-native (L2) language. We recorded event-related brain potentials in L1 and L2 speakers ...
The long road of statistical learning research: past, present and future
(Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences, 2017)
The ERP signature of the contextual diversity effect in visual word recognition
(Cognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, 2017)
Behavioral experiments have revealed that words appearing in many different contexts are responded to faster than words that appear in few contexts. Although this contextual diversity (CD) effect has been found to be ...
Location of navigation menus in websites: an experimental study with Arabic users
(Universal Access in the Information Society, 2017)
While Arabic users represent by far the fastest growing language population on the Internet, research about how the peculiarities of Arabic language may shape users’ web interactions is still scarce. The preferences of ...
The Development of Spontaneous Sound-Shape Matching in Monolingual and Bilingual Infants During the First Year
(Developmental Psychology, 2017)
Recently it has been proposed that sensitivity to nonarbitrary relationships between speech sounds and objects potentially bootstraps lexical acquisition. However, it is currently unclear whether preverbal infants (e.g., ...
