  1. 1. Qualitative differences in L3 learners' neurophysiological response to L1 versus L2 transfer

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Alejandra Keidel Fernández; [2016]
    Keywords : EEG; Language acquisition; Morphosyntax; TLA; grammar; P300;

    Abstract : In the present study, the influence of morphosyntactic aspects of L1 and L2 on L3 comprehension is investigated using ERP (Event-Related Brain Potentials). The study examines the processing of verb and gender agreement incongruences in Spanish by native Swedish speakers that are fluent in English and learning Spanish, in comparison to a control group of native Spanish speakers.

  2. 2. Volitional and strategic retrieval-orientation adoption in reality monitoring: an ERP study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Author : Nils Nyberg; [2016]
    Keywords : recognition memory; retrieval orientation; reality monitoring; event-related potentials; multinomial processing tree models; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Retrieval orientations refer to cognitive states that, if adopted, tonically orients episodic retrieval attempts towards the sought-after type of information. Such orientations can enhance episodic retrieval by modulating the processing and effectiveness of retrieval cues. READ MORE

  3. 3. Is Visual Stimuli Neighboring Attended Stimuli Suppressedin High Perceptual Load? : A Steady State Evoked Potential Study

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Linn Bergström; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Perceptual load theory, together with the surround-suppression model suggest that stimulus surrounding attended stimuli is suppressed, especially if perceptual load is high. This study attempts to map surround-suppression using electroencephalography to measure neural activity related to suppression at four surrounding locations (2°, 3°, 4° and 6° from fixation).

  4. 4. Content dependence of the neural correlates of recollection: ERP old/new effects for faces, objects and words

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

    Author : Emma De Graaf; Anna Karlsson; [2014]
    Keywords : recollection; old new effects; material specificity; event-related potentials; Recognition memory; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : As previous research on content-specificity of the neural correlates of recollection is inconclusive, event-related potentials were used to assess old/new effects for faces, objects and words. The data demonstrate temporal differences in ERP old/new effects as a function of item type, supporting the notion that material-dependent processes underlie recollection-related neural activity.

  5. 5. Processing filler-gap dependencies in an L2: An Event-Related Potential study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Masterprogram: Språk och språkvetenskap

    Author : Andrea Schremm; [2012]
    Keywords : Languages and Literatures;

    Abstract : The present study investigated second language (L2) learners’ processing of filler-gap dependencies and tested the implications of Clahsen and Felser’s (2006) shallow structure hypothesis according to which L2 learners underuse syntactic information during the processing of these sentence types. Advanced L2 learners of English (native Swedish speakers) listened to English sentences with object-relative, subject-relative and finite complement clauses. READ MORE
