  • Díaz, Begoña; Mitterer, Holger; Broersm, Mirjam; Escera, Carles; Sebastián Gallés, Núria (Cambridge University Press, 2015)
    People differ in their ability to perceive second language (L2) sounds. In early bilinguals the variability in learning L2 phonemes stems from speech-specific capabilities (Díaz, Baus, Escera, Costa & Sebastián-Gallés, ...
  • Mathews, Zenon; Cetnarski, Ryszard; Verschure, Paul F. M. J. (Frontiers Media, 2015)
    Prediction plays a key role in control of attention but it is not clear which aspects of prediction are most prominent in conscious experience. An evolving view on the brain is that it can be seen as a prediction machine ...
  • Brunellière, Angèle; Sánchez García, Carolina, 1984-; Ikumi, Nara; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2013)
    Audiovisual speech perception has been frequently studied considering phoneme, syllable and word processing levels. Here, we examined the constraints that visual speech information might exert during the recognition of ...
  • Oubel, E.; Cebral, J.R.; De Craene, Mathieu; Blanc, R.; Blasco, Jordi; Macho, Juan M.; Putman, C.M.; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2010)
    The quantification of wall motion in cerebral aneurysms is becoming important owing to its potential connection to rupture, and as a way to incorporate the effects of vascular compliance in computational fluid dynamics ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Scarano, Leandro; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Society for Neuroscience, 2007)
    Recent single-cell studies in monkeys (Romo et al., 2004) show that the activity of neurons in the ventral premotor cortex covaries with the animal's decisions in a perceptual comparison task regarding the frequency of ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Kreuz, Thomas; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (Elsevier, 2011)
    Time scale parametric spike train distances like the Victor and the van Rossum distances are often applied to study the neural code based on neural stimuli discrimination. Different neural coding hypotheses, such as rate ...
  • Andrews, Jeffrey G.; Buzzi, Stefano; Choi, Wan; Hanly, Stephen; Lozano Solsona, Angel; Soong, Anthony C.K.; Zhang, Jianzhong Charlie (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    What will 5G be? What it will not be is an incremental advance on 4G. The previous four generations of cellular technology have each been a major paradigm shift that has broken backwards compatibility. And indeed, 5G ...
  • Baus, Cristina; Strijkers, Kristof; Costa, Albert (Frontiers Media, 2013)
    The aim of the present study was to explore the central (e.g., lexical processing) and peripheral processes (motor preparation and execution) underlying word production during typewriting. To do so, we tested non-professional ...
  • Calabria, Marco; Hernández, Mireia; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert (Frontiers Media, 2011)
    Several studies have documented the advantage of bilingualism with respect to the development of the executive control (EC) system. Two effects of bilingualism have been described in conflict resolution tasks: (a) bilinguals ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Ledberg, Anders (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    Biological systems often consist of multiple interacting subsystems, the brain being a prominent example. To understand the functions of such systems it is important to analyze if and how the subsystems interact and to ...
  • Gervain, Judit; Sebastián Gallés, Núria; Díaz, Begoña; Laka, Itziar; Mazuka, Reiko; Yamane, Naoto; Nespor, Marina; Mehler, Jacques (Frontiers Media, 2013)
    One universal feature of human languages is the division between grammatical functors and content words. From a learnability point of view, functors might provide entry points or anchors into the syntactic structure of ...
  • Costa, Albert; Foucart, Alice; Hayakawa, Sayuri; Aparici Aznar, Melina; Apesteguia, Jose; Heafner, Joy; Keysar, Boaz (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Should you sacrifice one man to save five? Whatever your answer, it should not depend on whether you were asked the question in your native language or a foreign tongue so long as you understood the problem. And yet here ...
