The combined use of virtual reality and EEG to study language processing in naturalistic environments

When we comprehend language, we often do this in rich settings where we can use many cues to understand what someone is saying. However, it has traditionally been difficult to design experiments with rich three-dimensional contexts that resemble our everyday environments, while maintaining control over the linguistic and nonlinguistic information that is available. Here we test the ...

Prediction and Production of Simple Mathematical Equations: Evidence from Visual World Eye-Tracking

The relationship between the production and the comprehension systems has recently become a topic of interest for many psycholinguists. It has been argued that these systems are tightly linked and in particular that listeners use the production system to predict upcoming content. In this study, we tested how similar production and prediction processes are in a novel version of the ...

The Role of Sustained Attention in the Production of Conjoined Noun Phrases: An Individual Differences Study

It has previously been shown that language production, performed simultaneously with a nonlinguistic task, involves sustained attention. Sustained attention concerns the ability to maintain alertness over time. Here, we aimed to replicate the previous finding by showing that individuals call upon sustained attention when they plan single noun phrases (e.g., "the carrot") and ...

Selective and nonselective inhibition of competitors in picture naming

Zeshu Shao Antje S. Meyer Ardi Roelofs The present study examined the relation between nonselective inhibition and selective inhibition in picture naming performance. Nonselective inhibition refers

Is it a letter? Is it a number? Processing of numbers within SMS shortcuts

Activation of distractor names in the picture-picture interference paradigm

In four experiments, participants named target pictures that were accompanied by distractor pictures with phonologically related or unrelated names. Across experiments, the type of phonological relationship between the targets and the related distractors was varied: They were homophones (e.g.,bat [animal/baseball]), or they shared word-initial segments (e.g.,dog-doll) or word-final ...

Extrafoveal processing of objects in a naming task: Evidence from word probe experiments

ANTJE S. MEYER 0 0 University of Birmingham , Birmingham, England In two experiments, we investigated the processing of extrafoveal objects in a double-object naming task. On most trials

Top-down effects of semantic knowledge in visual search are modulated by cognitive but not perceptual load

Early activation of object names in visual search

In a visual search experiment, participants had to decide whether or not a target object was present in a fourobject search array. One of these objects could be a semantically related competitor (e.g.,shirt for the targettrousers) or a conceptually unrelated object with the same name as the target—for example,bat (baseball) for the targetbat (animal). In the control condition, the ...

Phonological priming effects on speech onset latencies and viewing times in object naming

An earlier experiment (Meyer, Sleiderink, & Levelt, 1998) had shown that speakers naming object pairs usually inspected the objects in the required order of mention (left object first) and that the viewing time for the left object depended on the word frequency of its name. In the present experiment, object pairs were presented simultaneously with auditory distractor words that ...

Eye movements during the production of nouns and pronouns

Earlier research has established that speakers usually fixate the objects they name and that the viewing time for an object depends on the time necessary for object recognition and for the retrieval of its name. In three experiments, speakers produced pronouns and noun phrases to refer to new objects and to objects already known. Speakers looked less frequently and for shorter ...
