This experiment investigated age differences in electrophysiological correlates of retrieval success in a word-stem cued recall task. Young adults (M+/-SD: 21.4 years+/-1.9) performed this memory task more accurately than older participants (M+/-SD: 65.1 years+/-3.3). Robust event-related brain potential (ERP) old/new effects were identified in both age(More)
OBJECTIVE Warning signals can induce a paradoxical increase in reaction time (RT) when detecting targets. Top-down inhibitory control intended to prevent undesired responses to non-target stimuli may account for this effect. This hypothesis assumes the existence of a gating mechanism during conditions of uncertainty that locks the initiation of movement(More)
Using 'jet lag' paradigms involving phase shifts in the light-dark (LD) cycle, we studied the effects of S-20098 on the circadian clock of a diurnal rodent. Arvicanthis mordax, entrained to a regular LD cycle, were subjected to advance shifts (i.e. 4, 6 or 8 h) in the LD cycle and injected with vehicle or the melatonin agonist S-20098 (20 mg/kg) the day of(More)
This experiment was designed to explore the impact of age and amount of retrieval support on episodic memory and its electrophysiological correlates. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded while young and older participants performed a word-stem cued-recall task in a low-support condition (LSC) in which the stem was composed of three letters, and a(More)
Ocular torsion is a key problem in the understanding of many visual perceptual effects. However, since it is difficult to record, its integration with other sensorimotor signals is still poorly understood. Unfortunately, eyetracker systems are generally not dedicated to the monitoring of eye torsion. In addition, the classical methods used with video-based(More)
Auditory and somatosensory systems play a key role in speech motor control. In the act of speaking, segmental speech movements are programmed to reach phonemic sensory goals, which in turn are used to estimate actual sensory feedback in order to further control production. The adult's tendency to automatically imitate a number of acoustic-phonetic(More)
The present study examines the effect of language experience on vocal emotion perception in a second language. Native speakers of French with varying levels of self-reported English ability were asked to identify emotions from vocal expressions produced by American actors in a forced-choice task, and to rate their pleasantness, power, alertness and(More)
Study of the coarticulation CV within Italian adult stutterers The coarticulation of the stuttered speech shows distinctive characteristics in its dysfluent aspects as well as in its fluent ones. The present survey is about the coarticulation of fluent sequences tested in Italian adult stutterers. The tested subjects had to repeat CV syllables under two(More)
