Functional parallelism in spoken word-recognition
Two versions of a “cohort”-based model of the process of spoken word-recognition are described, showing how it evolves from a partially interactive model, where access is strictly autonomous but selection is subject to top-down control, to a fully bottom-up model where context plays no role in the processes of form-based access and selection.

A Toolbox for Representational Similarity Analysis
A Matlab toolbox for representational similarity analysis is introduced, designed to help integrate a wide range of computational models into the analysis of multichannel brain-activity measurements as provided by modern functional imaging and neuronal recording techniques. Expand
Morphology and meaning in the English mental lexicon.
The authors investigated the lexical entry for morphologically complex words in English. Six experiments, using a cross-modal repetition priming task, asked whether the lexical entry forExpand
Making Sense of Semantic Ambiguity: Semantic Competition in Lexical Access
There have been several reports in the literature of faster visual lexical decisions to words that are semantically ambiguous. All current models of this ambiguity advantage assume that it is theExpand
Morphological and semantic effects in visual word recognition: A time-course study
Some theories of visual word recognition postulate that there is a level of processing or representation at which morphemes are treated differently fromwhole words. Support for these theories hasExpand
Processing interactions and lexical access during word recognition in continuous speech
An active direct access model is proposed, in which top-down processing constraints interact directly with bottom-up information to produce the primary lexical interpretation of the acoustic-phonetic input. Expand
Accessing Different Types of Lexical Semantic Information: Evidence From Priming
The types of semantic information that are automatically retrieved from the mental lexicon on hearing a word were investigated in 3 semantic priming experiments. The authors probed for activation ofExpand
Integrating Form and Meaning: A Distributed Model of Speech Perception.
The integration of partial cues to phonological identity is examined, and it is argued that the process of competition between word candidates during lexical access can be interpreted in terms of interference between distributed lexical representations. Expand
The time course of visual word recognition as revealed by linear regression analysis of ERP data
Results indicate that information about surface form and meaning of a lexical item is first accessed at different times in different brain systems and then processed simultaneously, thus supporting cascaded interactive processing models. Expand
The temporal structure of spoken language understanding
The combined results provided evidence for an on-line interactive language processing theory, in which lexical, structural, and interpretative knowledge sources communicate and interact during processing in an optimally efficient and accurate manner. Expand
