In Serbo-Croat, lexical decision to phonologically bivalent letter strings is slowed relative to their phonologically unique counterparts. This feature was exploited in order to assess the linguistic capacity of the two hemispheres. Lexical decision to laterally presented words and pseudowords revealed a right visual field advantage for both males and(More)
Two experiments examined the effect on lexical decision times for inflected Serbo-Croatian nouns when the nouns were preceded by possessive adjectives (my, your, our). For any given pairing the possessive adjective and the noun agreed always in number (singular) and case (nominative) but only agreed half of the time in gender (masculine or feminine).(More)
We conducted a strong test of the idea that visual word processing and the activation of a printed word's meaning proceeds at a rate scaled by the temporal evolution of a unique and stable phonological code. Using the lexical decision task, and readers fluent in the two alphabets of Serbo-Croatian, we compared the priming of a target word such as automat by(More)
In a naming task conducted with bi-alphabetic readers of Serbo-Croatian. it was shown that letter strings that can be assigned both a Roman and a Cyrillic alphabet reading incur longer latencies than the unique alphabet transcription of the same word. and that the magnitude of the difference depended on the number of ambiguous characters in the ambiguous(More)
Connection between oxidative stress and clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) has been poorly investigated. This study was aimed to assess redox state (through measurement of oxidative stress markers) of patients with acute ischemic stroke during different stages of follow-up period, and to find association between values of mentioned markers and(More)
BACKGROUND Locked-in syndrome (LIS) is a condition characterized by quadriplegia and anarthria. The most common cause is a ventral pontine lesion due to atherosclerotic basilar artery disease. METHODS Cases with LIS were prospectively identified among the patients with acute ischemic stroke over 3 years, between 2009 and 2011. Clinical characteristics,(More)
