The Neural Correlates of Embodied L2 Learning: Does Embodied L2 Verb Learning Affect Representation and Retention?

Ana Zappa, Deirdre Bolger, Jean-Marie Pergandi, Raphael Fargier, Daniel Mestre, and Cheryl Frenck-Mestre. 2024. Neurobiology of Language, January, 1–59. —  @HAL We investigated how naturalistic actions in a highly immersive, multimodal, interactive 3D virtual reality (VR) environment may enhance word encoding by recording EEG in a pre/post-test learning paradigm. While behavior data has shown that […]

Sequence Learning and Chunk Stability in Guinea Baboons (Papio Papio)

Laure Tosatto, Joël Fagot, and Arnaud Rey 2023. Revue de Primatologie, no. 14 (October). —  @HAL Chunking mechanisms, the processes of grouping several items together into a single processing unit, are central to several cognitive processes in human and non-human primates and notably to the acquisition of visuomotor sequences. Individuals segment sequences into chunks to […]

The Dynamics of Multiword Sequence Extraction

Leonardo Pinto Arata, Laura Ordonez Magro, Carlos Ramisch, Jonathan Grainger, and Arnaud Rey. 2024. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, January, 17470218241228548. —  @HAL Being able to process multiword sequences is central for both language comprehension and production. Numerous studies support this claim, but less is known about the way multiword sequences are acquired, and more […]

Towards Formal Models of Inhibitory Mechanisms Involved in Motor Imagery: A Commentary on Bach et al. (2022)

Ladislas Nalborczyk, Marieke Longcamp, Thibault Gajdos, Mathieu Servant, and F.-Xavier Alario. 2024. Psychological Research, January  —  @HAL A vast body of research suggests that the primary motor cortex is involved during motor imagery. This raises the issue of inhibition: Given the role of the motor system in providing the multisensory content of motor imagery, how […]
