Immediately after a stimulus appears in the visual field, there is often a short period of facilitated processing of stimuli at or near this location. This period is followed by one in whichExpand
Adaptation is automatic
Two experiments were used to test whether selective adaptation for speech occurs automatically or instead requires attentional resources. A control condition demonstrated the usual largeExpand

Three experiments tested Samuel and Newport's (1979) hypothesis that the perceptual system sorts its input on the basis of its spectral quality (periodic vs. aperiodic). In Experiment 1, repeatedExpand
Perception of intervocalic stop consonants: the contributions of closure duration and formant transitions.
Acoustic analyses of vowel-consonant-vowel (VCV) utterances indicate that they generally include formant transitions from the first vowel into a period of closure (VC transitions), and transitionsExpand
Which syllable does an intervocalic stop belong to? A selective adaptation study.
Three selective adaptation experiments were conducted to investigate whether intervocalic stops are perceived as the end of the preceding syllable or as the beginning of the following one. TheExpand
Reflections on and of the syllable: Does a medial consonant in a VCV belong to the first or second syllable?
Previous research has shown that adaptation effects in speech are position specific: consonant‐vowel (CV) syllables do not affect labeling of vowel‐consonant (VC} syllables, and vice versa. TheExpand
Are selective adaptation effects independent of cognitive load
Selective adaptation occurs through the repeated presentation of a sound (the ‘‘adaptor’’), and leads to a reduction in the perception of similar sounds. Adaptation has been used to investigate theExpand
Using reaction times to explore the mechanisms of selective adaptation
Previous research has demonstrated that the identification shifts induced by selective adaptation are accompanied by reliable reaction time changes. For example, if a /ba/‐/da/ test series is used,Expand
To /b/ or not to /b/: The interaction of intervocalic silence and consonantal transitions
The acoustic realization of a consonant depends upon its position in the syllable. For example in /bɑ/, there are rising transitions; in /ɑb/, there are falling transitions, and in/ɑbɑ/there may beExpand
