The roles of tonal and segmental information in Mandarin spoken word recognition: An eyetracking study
Abstract We used eyetracking to examine how tonal versus segmental information influence spoken word recognition in Mandarin Chinese. Participants heard an auditory word and were required to identifyExpand

Setting the tone: An ERP investigation of the influences of phonological similarity on spoken word recognition in Mandarin Chinese
We investigated the influences of phonological similarity on the time course of spoken word processing in Mandarin Chinese. Event related potentials were recorded while adult native speakers ofExpand

ERPs reveal the temporal dynamics of auditory word recognition in specific language impairment
We used event-related potentials (ERPs) to compare auditory word recognition in children with specific language impairment (SLI group; N=14) to a group of typically developing children (TD group;Expand

Common Neural Basis of Motor Sequence Learning and Word Recognition and Its Relation With Individual Differences in Reading Skill
ABSTRACT To investigate the neural basis of a common statistical learning mechanism involved in motor sequence learning and decoding, we recorded brain activation from participants during a serialExpand

Neural representations for newly learned words are modulated by overnight consolidation, reading skill, and age
ABSTRACT Word learning depends not only on efficient online binding of phonological, orthographic and lexical information, but also on consolidation of new word representations into permanent lexicalExpand

Towards a Model of Tonal Processing During Mandarin Spoken Word Recognition
Despite the prevalence of tonal languages in the world, current models of spoken word recognition do not account for tonal processing. In this review, we consider how current models might be modifiedExpand

Individual Differences in Reading Skill Are Related to Trial-by-Trial Neural Activation Variability in the Reading Network
Recent work has suggested that variability in levels of neural activation may be related to behavioral and cognitive performance across a number of domains and may offer information that is notExpand

Encoding lexical tones in jTRACE: a simulation of monosyllabic spoken word recognition in Mandarin Chinese
Despite its prevalence as one of the most highly influential models of spoken word recognition, the TRACE model has yet to be extended to consider tonal languages such as Mandarin Chinese. A keyExpand

Dough, tough, cough, rough: A “fast” fMRI localizer of component processes in reading
In the current study, we present a novel fMRI protocol in which words, pseudowords, and other word-like stimuli are passively presented in a rapid, sequential fashion. In this "fast" localizerExpand
