  • Costumero, Víctor; Marin-Marin, Lidon; Calabria, Marco; Belloch, Vicente; Escudero, Joaquín; Baquero, Miguel; Hernández Pardo, Mireia; Ruiz de Miras, Juan; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Parcet, Maria-Antònia; Ávila, César (BioMed Central, 2020)
    Background Evidence from previous studies suggests that bilingualism contributes to cognitive reserve because bilinguals manifest the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) up to 5 years later than monolinguals. Other ...
  • Albantakis, Larissa; Branzi, Francesca Martina, 1984-; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Deco, Gustavo (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    The role of changes of mind and multiple choices has recently received increased attention in the study of perceptual/ndecision-making. Previously, these extensions to standard two-alternative tasks have been studied ...
  • Calabria, Marco; Hernández Pardo, Mireia; Cattaneo, Gabriele, 1984-; Serras Robert, Mariona; Juncadella, Montserrat; Reñé, Ramón; Sala, Isabel; Lleó, Alberto; Ortiz-Gil, Jordi; Ugas, Lidia; Ávila, Asunción; Gómez Ruiz, Isabel; Ávila, César; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2020)
    Lifelong bilingualism may contribute to cognitive reserve (CR) in neurodegenerative diseases as shown by a delay of the age at symptom onset in bilinguals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). ...
  • Foucart, Alice; Ruiz Tada, Elisa, 1984-; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Cambridge University Press, 2016)
    The present study investigated anticipation processes in L2 speech comprehension. French–Spanish late bilinguals were presented with high-constrained Spanish sentences. ERPs were time-locked on the article preceding the ...
  • Rodríguez Pujadas, Aina; Sanjuán, Ana; Ventura Campos, Noelia; Román, Patricia; Martin, Clara D.; Barceló-Arroyo, Francisco; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Ávila, César (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    We tested the hypothesis that early bilinguals use language-control brain areas more than monolinguals when performing/nnon-linguistic executive control tasks. We do so by exploring the brain activity of early bilinguals ...
  • Sadat Schaffai, Jasmin, 1982-; Martin, Clara D.; Magnuson, James S.; Alario, F.-Xavier (François -Xavier); Costa, Albert, 1970- (Wiley, 2016)
    Bilinguals have been shown to perform worse than monolinguals in a variety of verbal tasks. This study investigated this bilingual verbal cost in a large‐scale picture‐naming study conducted in Spanish. We explored how ...
  • Woumans, Evy; Martin, Clara D.; Vanden Bulcke, Charlotte; Van Assche, Eva; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Hartsuiker, Robert J.; Duyck, Wouter (SAGE Publications, 2015)
    Bilinguals have two languages that are activated in parallel. During speech production, one of these languages must be selected on the basis of some cue. The present study investigated whether the face of an interlocutor ...
  • Strijkers, Kristof; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
    A central question in the cognitive neuroscience of language production concerns the cortical activation time-course by which different word production components become available to the speaker. According to the dominant ...
  • Foucart, Alice; Romero Rivas, Carlos, 1986-; Gort, Bernharda Lottie; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2016)
    Using ERPs, we tested whether L2 speakers can integrate multiple sources of information (e.g., semantic, pragmatic information) during discourse comprehension. We presented native speakers and L2 speakers with three-sentence ...
  • Ivanova, Iva; Branigan, Holly P.; McLean, Janet; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Pickering, Martin J. (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
    We frequently experience and successfully process anomalous utterances. Here we examine whether people do this by “correcting” syntactic anomalies to yield well-formed representations. In two structural priming experiments, ...
  • Vives, Marc-Lluís, 1991-; Repke, Lydia; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Cambridge University Press, 2018)
    Ikizer and Ramirez-Esparza (2017) reported a study suggesting that bilingualism may have a positive impact on people's social skills. They found that a) bilinguals scored higher on a scale that is supposed to reveal social ...
  • Foucart, Alice; García, Xavier, 1967-; Ayguasanosa, Meritxell; Thierry, Guillaume; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2015)
    The present study investigated how pragmatic information is integrated during L2 sentence comprehension. We put forward that the differences often observed between L1 and L2 sentence processing may reflect differences on ...
  • Baus, Cristina; Ruiz Tada, Elisa, 1984-; Escera, Carles; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Nature Research, 2021)
    Does language categorization influence face identification? The present study addressed this question by means of two experiments. First, to establish language categorization of faces, the memory confusion paradigm was ...
  • Corey, Joanna Darrow, 1986-; Costa, Albert, 1970- (CienciaCognitiva.org, 2015)
    Puede parecer razonable pensar que nuestras decisiones morales (y naturalezas morales) no dependen de la lengua que usemos (nativa o extranjera). Sin embargo, estudios recientes sugieren que la lengua en la que se presenta ...
  • Runnqvist, Elin; Strijkers, Kristof; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2019)
    We tested whether learning associated to lexical selection is error-based, and whether lexical selection is competitive by assessing the after-effects of producing words on subsequent production of semantic competitors ...
  • Romero Rivas, Carlos, 1986-; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2016)
    Listeners are able to anticipate upcoming words during sentence comprehension, and, as a result, they also pre-activate semantically related words. In the present study, we aim at exploring whether these anticipatory ...
  • Rodriguez-Cuadrado, Sara; Baus, Cristina; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Cambridge University Press, 2018)
    We explore the properties of foreigner talk through word reduction. Word reduction signals that the speaker is referring to the same entity as previously and should be preserved for foreigner talk. However, it leads to ...
  • Baus, Cristina; McAleer, Phil; Marcoux, Katherine; Belin, Pascal; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Nature Research, 2019)
    We form very rapid personality impressions about speakers on hearing a single word. This implies that the acoustical properties of the voice (e.g., pitch) are very powerful cues when forming social impressions. Here, we ...
  • Martin, Clara D.; García, Xavier, 1967-; Breton, Audrey; Thierry, Guillaume; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Frontiers Media, 2014)
    Do the integration of semantic information and that of world knowledge occur simultaneously or in sequence during sentence processing? To address this question, we investigated event-related brain potentials elicited by ...
  • Voits, Toms; Rothman, Jason; Calabria, Marco; Robson, Holly; Aguirre, Naiara; Cattaneo, Gabriele, 1984-; Costumero, Víctor; Hernández Pardo, Mireia; Juncadella, Montserrat; Marín-Marín, Lidón; Suades, Anna; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Pliatsikas, Christos (Cambridge University Press, 2023)
    Bilingualism has been shown to contribute to increased resilience against cognitive aging. One of the key brain structures linked to memory and dementia symptom onset, the hippocampus, has been observed to adapt in response ...
