Libben and Titone (2009) recently observed that cognate facilitation and interlingual homograph interference were attenuated by increased semantic constraint during bilingual second language (L2) reading, using eye movement measures. We now investigate whether cross-language activation also occurs during first language (L1) reading as a function of age of(More)
Motivated by the demonstration of similarly localized adaptation of the hemodynamic response in a first (L1) and second (L2) language, this study examined event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to spoken words in L1 and L2 in 15 English-French bilinguals. We examined whether the temporal pattern of N400 adaptation due to within-language repetitions (i.e.,(More)
We consider weak solutions of (hyperbolic or hyperbolic-elliptic) systems of conservation laws in one-space dimension and their approximation by finite difference schemes in conservative form. The systems under consideration are endowed with an entropy-entropy flux pair. We introduce a general approach to construct second and third order accurate, fully(More)
Models of bilingual reading such as Bilingual Interactive Activation Plus (Dijkstra & van Heuven, 2002) do not predict a central role for domain-general executive control during bilingual reading, in contrast with bilingual models from other domains, such as production (e.g., the Inhibitory Control Model; Green, 1998). We thus investigated whether(More)
This article reports the first considerations, one dimensional ones, that led us to consider a new to our knowledge class of numerical methods, called " Optimally Transported Schemes ". The name " Optimally Transported Schemes " has been given because this method is designed using mainly Optimal Transport Theory and Optimal Quantization considerations.(More)
This paper reports the factor structure of a 37-item personality questionnaire intended to be predictive of driving performance in elderly persons. Subjects were 191 persons 63 years of age of older, about half of whom also were given perceptual/cognitive tasks and drove on a closed driving course. Although the personality questionnaire did not predict(More)
