Discourse Prosody and Sentence Processing in Prelingually Deaf Teenagers with Cochlear Implants by Katherine Demuth

Salle de conférences 5 avenue Pasteur, Aix-en-Provence

Discourse Prosody and Sentence Processing in Prelingually Deaf Teenagers with Cochlear Implants by Katherine Demuth 17h30 LPL, The past few years has seen major improvements in the early diagnosis of hearing loss, early intervention, and device improvements. Much of the assessment of language development has focussed on the early years, with assessment of hearing levels, […]

Deep learning models of perception and cognition by Marco Zorzi

Salle des voûtes, St Charles 3 place Victor Hugo, Marseille

Deep learning models of perception and cognition by Marco Zorzi (University of Padova, Italy) Deep learning in stochastic recurrent neural networks with many layers of neurons (“deep networks”) is a recent breakthrough in neural computation research. These networks build a hierarchy of progressively more complex representations of the sensory data through unsupervised learning. Using examples […]

Parallel orthographic processing and reading

CIRM - Luminy 163 avenuede Luminy, Case 916, Marseille

Parallel orthographic processing and reading Jonathan Grainger (Laboratoire de Psychologie Cognitive, CNRS & Aix-Marseille University Marseille) In written languages that use an alphabetic script, orthographic processing lies at the heart of the reading process, enabling visual information to make contact with linguistic information. Indeed, reading can be viewed as a bi-directional interaction between the processing […]

Understanding covert verbal actions as simulated verbal actions : Ladislas Nalborczyk , ILCB

Mental imagery of actions or “motor imagery” is accompanied by subjective multisensory (e.g., auditory, visual, kinaesthetic) experience. For instance, while reading these words, you may experience the auditory sensation of an “inner voice” accompanying your reading. Since the first explorations of the phenomenological and psychophysiological properties of such imagined actions, there has been considerable efforts […]

Interpreting machine learning in hearing, communication and language sciences: why, how, and the current challenges

Here is the link to the event : https://univ-amu-fr.zoom.us/j/99484117315?pwd=d3gyYmlDa2QycUpET3pxZ2x0LzNVQT09 "Interpreting machine learning ? Why and how ? " In the context of a cycle of talks organized by the ILCB post-docs, we are organising February, 11th (online) a talk/round table on interpretability. This event is dedicated to be informal and aims to be a place […]

Comparing brains across individuals and species via cortical folding patterns

KepKee and Olivier Coulon Abstract: A prominent feature of the human cerebral cortex is the presence of folds, or sulci. Even though cortical sulci look very different from one person to another, sulcal organisation is not at all random: it follows a topography that is highly conserved across human and nonhuman primates. Robust sulci-function relationships have mostly […]
