Categorization of vocal and nonvocal stimuli in Guinea baboons (Papio papio)

Fatima‐Ezzahra Ennaji, Joël Fagot, & Pascal Belin American Journal of Primatology (in press) — @HAL Categorization of vocal sounds apart from other sounds is one of the key abilities in human voice processing, but whether this ability is present in other animals, particularly nonhuman primates, remains unclear. In the present study, 25 socially housed Guinea […]

Going beyond the ‘synthetic method’: New paradigms cross-fertilizing robotics and cognitive neuroscience

Edoardo Datteri, Thierry Chaminade, & Donato Romano Frontiers in Psychology, 13:819042  — @HAL In so-called ethorobotics and robot-supported social cognitive neurosciences, robots are used as scientific tools to study animal behavior and cognition. Building on previous epistemological analyses of biorobotics, in this article it is argued that these two research fields, widely differing from one […]

Multimodal behavioral cues analysis of the sense of presence and co-presence during a social interaction with a virtual patient

Magalie Ochs, Jérémie Bousquet, Jean-Marie Pergandi, & Philippe Blache Frontiers in Computer Science, 2022, 4:746804  @HAL User’s experience evaluation is a key challenge when studying human-agent interaction. Besides user’s satisfaction, this question is addressed in virtual reality through the sense of presence and social presence, generally assessed thanks to subjective post-experience questionnaires. We propose in […]

Associative symmetry: a divide between humans and nonhumans?

Thomas Chartier & Joël Fagot Trends in Cognitive Sciences (2022) Volume 26, issue 4, 286-289  @HAL Anthropocentrism can bias scientific conclusions. As a case study, we challenge the 40-year-old associative symmetry dogma, supposed to cognitively set apart humans from other species. Out of 37 human studies surveyed, only three truly demonstrate symmetry, of which only […]

Learning Higher‐Order Transitional Probabilities in Nonhuman Primates

Arnaud Rey, Joël Fagot, Fabien Mathy, Laura Lazartigues, Laure Tosatto, Guillem Bonafos, Jean‐Marc Freyermuth, & Frédéric Lavigne Cognitive Science, 46 (4), 2022, e13121  @HAL The extraction of cooccurrences between two events, A and B, is a central learning mechanism shared by all species capable of associative learning. Formally, the co-occurrence of events A and B […]

Interaction between orthographic and graphomotor constraints in learning to write

Jérémy Danna, Marieke Longcamp, Ladislas Nalborczyk, Jean-Luc Velay, Claire Commengé, & Marianne Jover Learning and Instruction (80), August 2022, 101622  @HAL We investigated the combined effects of orthographic and graphomotor constraints as a function of handwriting proficiency in children. Twenty-four first graders, 20 third graders, and 21 fifth graders wrote single five-letter words in cursive […]

Rhythm perception is shared between audio and haptics

Corentin Bernard, Jocelyn Monnoyer, Michaël Wiertlewski, & Sølvi Ystad Scientific Reports, Nature Publishing Group, 2022, 12. A surface texture is perceived through both the sound and vibrations produced while being explored by our fingers. Because of their common origin, both modalities have a strong influence on each other, particularly at above 60 Hz for which […]

Testing the Effects of GraphoGame Against a Computer-Assisted Math Intervention in Primary School

Julie Lassault, Liliane Sprenger-Charolles, Jean-Patrice Albrand, Edouard Alavoine, Ulla Richardson, Heikki Lyytinen, & Johannes C. Ziegler Scientific Studies of Reading, 2022, pp.1 – 20. @HAL This study was designed to assess the efficiency of a French version of GraphoGame (GG) against an equally engaging math intervention (Fiete Math, FM) in a large school sample of […]

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. […]
