Hemispheric asymmetries in the threshold for eliciting motor evoked potentials (MEPs) with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are associated with hand preference. We posited that hemispheric asymmetries in TMS thresholds may be strongly correlated with some hand-differences in motor performance. MEPs result from the activation of neuronal networks(More)
Handedness may be defined as preference or hand-differences in task performance. The strength and significance of the relationship between hand preference and hand performance asymmetries have been contested. To evaluate this relationship, we administered the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory and measured asymmetries in finger tapping, Purdue Pegboard, and(More)
— We are building a new corpus of deceptive and non-deceptive speech, using American English and Mandarin Chinese adult native speakers, to investigate individual and cultural differences in acoustic, prosodic, and lexical cues to deception. Here, we report on the role of personality factors using the NEO-FFI (Neuroticism-Extraversion-Openness Five Factor(More)
When automatically detecting deception, it is important to model individual differences across speakers. We explore the automatic identification of individual traits such as gender , native language, and personality, using acoustic-prosodic and lexical features from an initial non-deceptive dialogue. We also explore predicting success at deception and at(More)
Automatic personality recognition is useful for many computational applications, including recommendation systems, dating websites, and adaptive dialogue systems. There have been numerous successful approaches to classify the " Big Five " personality traits from a speaker's utterance, but these have largely relied on judgments of personality obtained from(More)
