Infants' unitary perception of their multisensory world, including learning from people (faces and speech), hinges on temporal synchrony. Despite its importance, relatively little work has investigated the brain processes involved in infants' perception of temporal synchrony. In two experiments, we examined event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to(More)
Behavioral work demonstrates human infants are sensitive to a host of intersensory properties and this sensitivity promotes early learning and memory. However, little is known regarding the neural basis of this ability in infants. Using event-related potentials (ERPs) with infants and adults, we show that during passive viewing auditory evoked brain(More)
Mental representations of space, time, and number are fundamental to our understanding of the world around us. It should come as no surprise that representations of each are functional early in human development, appear to share a common format, and may be maintained by overlapping cortical structures. The consequences of these similarities for early(More)
There are few reports of the application of antibiosis as a possible means of controlling Verticillium alboatrum Reinke and Berthold. Most of these publications are concerned with in vitro studies which report the effects of various organisms or their products on V. albo-atrum (Ark and Hunt, 1941; Arnstein et al., 1948; Smith, 1947).

a r t i c l e i n f o Available research indicates a link between marital conflict and youth outcomes; however, relatively few studies examine these relationships in Latinos, the largest U.S. ethnic group. The present study examines this relationship in both Latino and European American families. Self-report data measuring externalizing and internalizing(More)
Competition among members of the microflora leads the investigator into many strange and diverse by-paths. Microorganisms in their metabolism give off by-products, many of which are inhibitory in nature; some have stimulatory effects. These products and activities properly controlled will give us much insight into the proper care of cultures, a natural and(More)
