Implicit statistical learning refers to the acquisition of statistical patterns occurring under incidental learning conditions. Although statistical learning is central to the development of many cognitive domains, such as language, its developmental trajectory is largely unspecified. Furthermore, few studies have attempted to examine the underlying neural(More)
Implicit statistical learning (ISL) allows for the learning of environmental patterns and is thought to be important for many aspects of perception, cognition, and language development. However, very little is known about the development of the underlying neural mechanisms that support ISL. To explore the neurodevelopment of ISL, we investigated the(More)
Cortical reorganization of function due to the growth of an adjacent brain tumor has clearly been demonstrated in a number of surgically proven cases. Such cases demonstrate the unmistakable implications for the neurosurgical treatment of brain tumors, as the cortical function may not reside where one may initially suspect based solely on the anatomical(More)
Both the degree to which the left-hemisphere is specialized for language and the relative ability of the right-hemisphere to subserve language function are underspecified. The present study sought to identify whether the right-frontal fMRI activation seen in a number of case studies in patients with left-sided brain lesions exists as a group-level trend in(More)
Statistical learning is a cognitive process that serves as a mechanism of entrenchment across a number of domains, including language. It is a process by which learners implicitly form associations between stimuli by tracking and storing the underlying statistical relationships between such elements. This chapter examines the statistical relationships that(More)
