Inferring Phylogenetic Trees Using Answer Set Programming
TLDR
We describe the reconstruction of a phylogeny for a set of taxa, with a character-based cladistics approach, in a declarative knowledge representation formalism, and show how to use computational methods of answer set programming to generate conjectures about the evolution of the given taxa. Expand

Modelling endangered languages: The effects of bilingualism and social structure
TLDR
The mathematical model for language competition developed by Abrams and Strogatz allows the evolution of the numbers of monolingual speakers of two competing languages to be estimated. Expand

Delta, theta, beta, and gamma brain oscillations index levels of auditory sentence processing
TLDR
A growing number of studies indicate that multiple ranges of brain oscillations, especially the delta (δ, <4Hz), theta (θ, 4-8Hz), beta (β, 13-30Hz), and gamma (γ, 30-50Hz) bands, are engaged in speech and language processing. Expand

Optimizing the P300-based brain-computer interface: current status, limitations and future directions.
TLDR
This paper summarizes the presentations and discussions at a workshop held during the Fourth International BCI Meeting charged with reviewing and evaluating the current state, limitations and future development of P300-based brain-computer interface (P300-BCI) systems. Expand

Self-organization and selection in the emergence of vocabulary
TLDR
We use simulation models and mathematical analysis to explore the process of how convention is achieved to form a coherent naming system—which we may refer to as a vocabulary. Expand

A Chinese Text Input Brain–Computer Interface Based on the P300 Speller
TLDR
A visual speller is a brain–computer interface that empowers users with limited motor functionality to input text into a computer using electroencephalographic responses to visual stimuli. Expand

The impact of tone systems on the categorical perception of lexical tones: An event-related potentials study
This study investigates the categorical perception (CP) of pitch contours (level and rising) by native listeners of two tone languages, Mandarin and Cantonese, for both speech and nonspeech. LanguageExpand
