How contrast situations affect the assignment of causality in symmetric physical settings
In determining the prime cause of a physical event, people often weight one of two entities in a symmetric physical relation as more important for bringing about the causal effect than the other. In a broad survey (Bender ...
Not all synesthetes are alike: Spatial versus visual dimensions of sequence-space synaesthesia
A follow-up study of first episode major depressive disorder. Impairment in inhibition and semantic fluency—potential predictors for relapse?
The present study investigated the Executive Functions (EF) of inhibition, mental flexibility and phonemic and semantic fluency in a 1-year follow-up assessment of patients diagnosed with first episode Major Depressive ...
Functional asymmetry and effective connectivity of the auditory system during speech perception is modulated by the place of articulation of the consonant – A 7 T fMRI study
To differentiate between stop-consonants, the auditory system has to detect subtle place of articulation (PoA) and voice-onset time (VOT) differences between stop-consonants. How this differential processing is represented ...
How brain asymmetry relates to performance – a large-scale dichotic listening study
All major mental functions including language, spatial and emotional processing are lateralized but how strongly and to which hemisphere is subject to inter- and intraindividual variation. Relatively little, however, is ...
Studying Different Tasks of Implicit Learning across Multiple Test Sessions Conducted on the Web
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2016-06-07)
Implicit learning is usually studied through individual performance on a single task, with the most common tasks being the Serial Reaction Time (SRT) task, the Dynamic System Control (DSC) task, and Artificial Grammar ...
Children with dyslexia show cortical hyperactivation in response to increasing literacy processing demands
This fMRI study aimed to examine how differences in literacy processing demands may affect cortical activation patterns in 11- to 12-year-old children with dyslexia as compared to children with typical reading skills. ...
Advancing our understanding of the link between statistical learning and language acquisition: The need for longitudinal data
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-08-31)
Mastery of language can be a struggle for some children. Amongst those that succeed in achieving this feat there is variability in proficiency. Cognitive scientists remain intrigued by this variation. A now substantial ...
