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)
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)
PURPOSE One possible source of tense and agreement limitations in children with specific language impairment (SLI) is a weakness in appreciating structural dependencies that occur in many sentences in the input. This possibility was tested in the present study. METHOD Children with a history of SLI (H-SLI; n = 12; M = 9;7 [years;months]) and typically(More)
Structured sequence processing (SSP) refers to the neurocognitive mechanisms used to learn sequential patterns in the environment. SSP ability seems to be important for language (Conway, Bauernschmidt, Huang, & Pisoni, 2010); however, there are few neural studies showing an empirical connection between SSP and language. The purpose of this study was to(More)
