How are visemes and graphemes integrated with speech sounds during spoken word recognition? ERP evidence for supra-additive responses during audiovisual compared to auditory speech processing

Chotiga Pattamadilok & Marc Sato Brain and Language, 225, February 2022, 105058, @HAL Abstract : Articulatory gestures and orthography are connected with speech through a natural and an artificial association, respectively. This EEG study investigated whether the integrations between speech and these two visual inputs rely on the same mechanism, despite their different characteristics. A […]

Avoiding gender ambiguous pronouns in French

Kumiko Fukumura, Céline Pozniak, & F.-Xavier Alario Cognition, 218, January 2022, 104909, @HAL Abstract : Across many languages, pronouns are the most frequently produced referring expressions. We examined whether and how speakers avoid referential ambiguity that arises when the gender of a pronoun is compatible with more than one entity in the context in French. […]

Brain Activity During Antisaccades to Faces in Adolescence

Alia Afyouni, Franziska Geringswald, Bruno Nazarian, & Marie-Hélène Grosbras. Cerebral Cortex Communications, 2(4), 2021, tgab057 Full text @ HAL Abstract : Cognitive control and social perception both change during adolescence, but little is known of the interaction of these 2 processes.We aimed to characterize developmental changes in brain activity related to the influence of a […]

Temporal integration of short-duration pulse trains in cochlear implant listeners: Psychophysical and electrophysiological measurements

Olivier Macherey, Pierre Stahl, Bastien Intartaglia, Sabine Meunier, Stéphane Roman, & Daniele Schön Hearing Research, 403, April 2021, 108176 Full text @ HAL While electrically-evoked auditory brainstem response (eABR) thresholds for low-rate pulse 35 trains correlate well with behavioral thresholds measured at the same rate, the correlation is 36 much weaker with behavioral thresholds measured […]

Can we use the internet to study speech production? Yes we can! Evidence contrasting online versus laboratory naming latencies and errors

Amie Fairs & Kristof Strijkers PLoS ONE 16(10): e0258908 Full text @ HAL The closure of cognitive psychology labs around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented in-person testing. This has caused a particular challenge for speech production researchers, as before the pandemic there were no studies demonstrating that reliable overt speech production […]

Extracting seizure onset from surface EEG with Independent Component Analysis: Insights from simultaneous scalp and intracerebral EEG

Andrei Barborica, Ioana Mindruta, Laurent Sheybani, Laurent Spinelli, Irina Oane, Constantin Pistol, Cristian Donos, Victor J López-Madrona, Serge Vulliemoz & Christian-George Bénar Neuroimage-Clinical, Elsevier, 2021, 32, pp.102838 Full text @ HAL Abstract : The success of stereoelectroencephalographic (SEEG) investigations depends crucially on the hypotheses on the putative location of the seizure onset zone. This information […]

Frequency Selectivity of Persistent Cortical Oscillatory Responses to Auditory Rhythmic Stimulation

Jacques Pesnot Lerousseau, Agnès Trébuchon, Benjamin Morillon, & Daniele Schön https://www.jneurosci.org/content/41/38/7991 Cortical oscillations have been proposed to play a functional role in speech and music perception, attentional selection, and working memory, via the mechanism of neural entrainment. One of the properties of neural entrainment that is often taken for granted is that its modulatory effect […]

Overpressure on fingertips prevents state estimation of the pen grip force and movement accuracy

Jérémy Danna, Mathilde Nordlund, Didier Louber, Simon Moré, & Laurence Mouchnino Experimental Brain Research (in press) Full text on Hal   We tested the hypothesis that the inability to move a pen accurately in a graphic task is partly due to a decrease of afferent somatosensory information resulting from overpressure on the tactile receptors of […]

The dynamics of reading complex words: evidence from steady-state visual evoked potentials

Elisabeth Beyersmann, Veronica Montani, Johannes C Ziegler, Jonathan Grainger, & Ivilin Peev Stoianov Scientific Reports 11, 15919 (2021) The present study used steady-state visual evoked potentials (SSVEPs) to examine the spatio-temporal dynamics of reading morphologically complex words and test the neurophysiological activation pattern elicited by stems and suffixes. Three different types of target words were […]

The Same Ultra-Rapid Parallel Brain Dynamics Underpin the Production and Perception of Speech

Amie Fairs, Amandine Michelas, Sophie Dufour, & Kristof Strijkers Cerebral Cortex Communications, Volume 2, Issue 3, 2021, tgab040 The temporal dynamics by which linguistic information becomes available is one of the key properties to understand how language is organized in the brain. An unresolved debate between different brain language models is whether words, the building […]
