      Foreign-accented speech modulates linguistic anticipatory processes 

      Romero-Rivas, Carlos; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert (Neuropsychologia, 2016)
      Listeners are able to anticipate upcoming words during sentence comprehension, and, as a result, they also pre-activate semantically related words. In the present study, we aim at exploring whether these anticipatory ...

      The effects of motivational reward on the pathological attentional blink following right hemisphere stroke 

      Li, Korina; Russell, Charlotte; Balaji, Nikita; Saleh, Youssuf; Soto, David; Malhotra, Paresh A. (Neuropsychologia, 2016)
      Recent work has shown that attentional deficits following stroke can be modulated by motivational stimulation, particularly anticipated monetary reward. Here we examined the effects of anticipated reward on the pathological ...

      Semantic Integration and Age of Acquisition Effects in Code-Blend Comprehension 

      Giezen, Marcel R.; Emmorey, Karen (Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016)
      Semantic and lexical decision tasks were used to investigate the mechanisms underlying code-blend facilitation: the finding that hearing bimodal bilinguals comprehend signs in American Sign Language (ASL) and spoken ...

      Physiology of Language 

      Mancini, Simona (Encyclopedia of Evolutionary Psychological Science, 2016)
      Comprehending and producing linguistic utterances relies on complex phonological, syntactic, and semantic representations that we incrementally and unconsciously build as the message unfolds in time. Behind these cognitive ...

      Biomarkers for Dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson’s Disease 

      Delgado-Alvarado, Manuel; Gago, Belén; Navalpotro-Gomez, Irene; Jiménez-Urbieta, Haritz; Rodríguez-Oroz, María C. (Movement Disorders, 2016)
      Cognitive decline is one of the most frequent and disabling nonmotor features of Parkinson's disease. Around 30% of patients with Parkinson's disease experience mild cognitive impairment, a well-established risk factor for ...

      Stimulation sites in the subthalamic nucleus and clinical improvement in Parkinson's disease: a new approach for active contact localization 

      Garcia-Garcia, David; Guridi, Jorge; Toledo, Jon B.; Alegre, Manuel; Obeso, José A.; Rodríguez-Oroz, María C. (Journal of Neurosurgery, 2016)
      OBJECTIVE Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is widely used in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, which target area of this region results in the highest antiparkinsonian efficacy ...

      Heritability and reliability of automatically segmented human hippocampal formation subregions 

      Whelan, Christopher D.; Hibar, Derrek P.; van Velzen, Laura S.; Zannas, Anthony S.; Carrillo-Roa, Tania; McMahon, Katie; Prasad, Gautam; Kelly, Sinéad; Faskowitz, Joshua; deZubiracay, Greig; Iglesias, Juan E.; van Erp, Theo G.M.; Frodl, Thomas; Martin, Nicholas G.; Wright, Margaret J.; Jahanshad, Neda; Schmaal, Lianne; Sämann, Philipp G.; Thompson, Paul M.; for the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (NeuroImage, 2016)
      The human hippocampal formation can be divided into a set of cytoarchitecturally and functionally distinct subregions, involved in different aspects of memory formation. Neuroanatomical disruptions within these subregions ...

      Agreement attraction in Serbian: decomposing markedness 

      Ristić, Bojana; Molinaro, Nicola; Mancini, Simona (The Mental Lexicon, 2016)
      Asymmetric number attraction effects have been typically explained via a privative markedness account: plural nouns are more marked than singular ones and thus stronger attractors. However, this account does not explain ...

      Native Language Influence in the Segmentation of a Novel Language 

      Ordin, Mikhail; Nespor, Marina (Language Learning and Development, 2016)
      A major problem in second language acquisition (SLA) is the segmentation of fluent speech in the target language, i.e., detecting the boundaries of phonological constituents like words and phrases in the speech stream. ...

      Splitting the variance of statistical learning performance: A parametric investigation of exposure duration and transitional probabilities 

      Bogaerts, Louisa; Siegelman, Noam; Frost, Ram (Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 2016)
      What determines individuals’ efficacy in detecting regularities in visual statistical learning? Our theoretical starting point assumes that the variance in performance of statistical learning (SL) can be split into the ...
