  • 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 ...
  • Barreda Ángeles, Miguel (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2014-06-13)
    El análisis de la atención que prestan los espectadores durante el consumo de contenidos de televisión es un aspecto fundamental para comprender los procesos de recepción de los medios. En esta tesis se realiza una ...
  • Foucart, Alice; Ruiz Tada, Elisa; 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 Cuadrado, Sara, 1984- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2013-12-20)
    The current dissertation deals with how attenuation of information works in relation to non-nativeness. It also deals with the nature of the attenuation of information phenomenon per se. Attenuation of information refers ...
  • Cattaneo, Gabriele, 1984- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2017-01-23)
    How can bilinguals easily and flexibly switch between languages without errors? The aim of this thesis is to advance our knowledge about the control mechanisms involved in bilingual language production. I investigated ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 F.; 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Martin, Clara D.; García, Xavier, 1967-; Potter, Douglas; Melinger, Alissa; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2016)
    Native speakers with different linguistic backgrounds differ in their usage of language, and particularly in their vocabulary. For instance, British natives would use the word "holiday" when American natives would prefer ...
  • Bereby‐Meyer, Yoella; Hayakawa, Sayuri; Shalvi, Shaul; Corey, Joanna Darrow, 1986-; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Keysar, Boaz (Wiley, 2018)
    Theories of dishonest behavior implicitly assume language independence. Here, we investigated this assumption by comparing lying by people using a foreign language versus their native tongue. Participants rolled a die and ...
  • Foucart, Alice; Ruiz Tada, Elisa; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2015)
    Most event-related brain potential (ERP) studies that showed the role of anticipation processes during sentence processing focused on reading. However, in everyday conversation speech unfolds at higher speed; the present ...
  • Sebastián Gallés, Núria; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    The ability to speak two languages often marvels monolinguals, although bilinguals report no difficulties in achieving this feat. Here, we examine how learning and using two languages affect language acquisition and ...
  • Foucart, Alice; Moreno Montes, Eva María; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Elsevier, 2015)
    This study reports an event-related potential (ERP) experiment examining whether valuation (i.e., one's own values) is integrated incrementally and whether it affects L2 speakers' online interpretation of the sentence. We ...
