This paper describes FTAP, a flexible data collection system for tapping and music experiments. FTAP runs on standard PC hardware with the Linux operating system and can process input keystrokes and auditory output with reliable millisecond resolution. It uses standard MIDI devices for input and output and is particularly flexible in the area of auditory(More)
Research on the effects of context and task on learning and memory has included approaches that emphasize processes during learning (e.g., Craik & Tulving, 1975) and approaches that emphasize a match of conditions during learning with conditions during a later test of memory (e.g., Morris, Bransford, & Franks, 1977; Proteau, 1992; Tulving & Thomson, 1973).(More)
Delayed auditory feedback (DAF) impairs performance in speech, music, and tapping, with maximal impairment in speech occurring at a delay of about 200 msec. This critical interval has played a central role in many explanations of the DAF effect, including both closed-loop feedback explanations and alternative proposals. We investigated the nature of the(More)
Multiuser UNIX-like operating systems such as Linux are often considered unsuitable for real-time data collection because of the potential for indeterminate timing latencies resulting from preemptive scheduling. In this paper, Linux is shown to be fully adequate for precisely controlled programming with millisecond resolution or better. The Linux system(More)
UNLABELLED Study Type--Aetiology (case series) Level of Evidence 4. What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? The factors taken into consideration when determining when and where to void are poorly understood. Studies on bladder sensations, obtained during cystometry of from voiding diaries, are proving difficult to transfer to everyday(More)
We report a series of experiments that demonstrate an effect of syllabic position on reaction time during phoneme monitoring in English. In our stimuli, the third phoneme of each word was the target phoneme, and it belonged either to the coda of the first syllable (coda-type target) or to the onset of the second syllable (onset-type target). By manipulating(More)

This dissertation includes three series of experiments and a review of connectionist models in the area of speech perception. The issues of concern in the experimental sections are (a) the importance of word onsets and stressed syllables for lexical activation, (b) the role of syllabic structure in the online perception of English, and (c) whether(More)
