Differential Sensitivity of Letters, Numbers, and Symbols to Character Transpositions

Jon Andoni Duñabeitia, Maria Dimitropoulou, Jonathan Grainger, Juan Andrés Hernández, Manuel Carreiras
2012 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
■ This study was designed to explore whether the human visual system has different degrees of tolerance to character position changes for letter strings, digit strings, and symbol strings.  ...  An earlier N1 transposition effect was also found for letters but was absent for symbols and digits, whereas a later P3 effect was found for all types of string.  ...  This research has been partially supported by grants PSI2009-08889 and CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 (CSD2008-00048) from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.  ...

Orthographic Coding: Brain Activation for Letters, Symbols, and Digits

Manuel Carreiras, Ileana Quiñones, Juan Andrés Hernández-Cabrera, Jon Andoni Duñabeitia
2014 Cerebral Cortex  
The present experiment investigates the input coding mechanisms of 3 common printed characters: letters, numbers, and symbols.  ...  Here, in an fMRI study, we manipulated character position and character identity through the transposition or substitution of 2 internal elements within strings of 4 elements.  ...  Note Conflict of Interest: None declared.  ...

Lightweight Symmetric Encryption Algorithm for Secure Database

Hanan A., Abeer S., Heba A.
2013 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
Due to the popularity of databases for storing important and critical data, they are becoming subject to an overwhelming range of threats, such as unauthorized access.  ...  This paper proposes enhancing the TSFS algorithm by extending its data set to special characters, as well as correcting its substitution and shifting steps to avoid the errors occurring during the decryption  ...  However, it supports only numbers and alphabetic characters that are not enough to protect different types of sensitive data.  ...

A Novel Approach to Strengthen Additional Layer of Security to Caesar Cipher

Vyshak R, Abdul Shareef Pallivalappil
2022 Sparklinglight Transactions on Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing  
This preserves confidentiality, integrity and availability and also provides security and privacy of data to the users.  ...  We are living in the world of technology where we share our messages to the sender via several messaging applications.  ...  In addition, a new character value table is proposed, which specifies the symbol, character, and digit places in the table.  ...

Orthographic Coding in Illiterates and Literates

Jon Andoni Duñabeitia, Karla Orihuela, Manuel Carreiras
2014 Psychological Science  
Some accounts propose that TL effects reflect domain-general, noisy perceptual mechanisms of the sensitivity of the same groups of participants to transpositions and replacements in nonlinguistic symbol  ...  processing: the transposed-letter (TL) effect (i.e., failing to efficiently differentiate between a known letter-string and another one created by transposing two of its internal elements; e.g., CHOLOCATE  ...  We designed two perceptual matching experiments to examine the sensitivity of literate and illiterate adults to letter and symbol strings that were similar to each other except for the transposition of  ...

Automatic Correction of Arabic Dyslexic Text

Maha Alamri, William Teahan
2019 Computers  
Furthermore, the generated candidate list is based on edit operations (insertion, deletion, substitution and transposition), and the correct alternative for each misspelled word is chosen on the basis  ...  of the compression codelength of the trigram.  ...  Acknowledgments: We deeply thank the teachers, parents and all the children for providing Arabic texts written by dyslexics. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Orthographic processing in pigeons (Columba livia)

Damian Scarf, Karoline Boy, Anelisie Uber Reinert, Jack Devine, Onur Güntürkün, Michael Colombo
2016 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
In addition, the pigeons were sensitive to the bigram frequencies of words (i.e., the common co-occurrence of certain letter pairs), the edit distance between nonwords and words, and the internal structure  ...  Learning to read involves the acquisition of letter-sound relationships (i.e., decoding skills) and the ability to visually recognize words (i.e., orthographic knowledge).  ...  words and nonwords, and the transposition of letters.  ...

Serial position functions for letter identification at brief and extended exposure durations

W. K. Estes, D. H. Allmeyer, S. M. Reder
1976 Perception & Psychophysics  
Further, transposition errors exhibit a pronounced peripheral-to-central drift, possibly reflecting gradients of positional uncertainty.  ...  Four-letter strings of random consonants were presented in varying display loc~ions relative to the fixation point with the observers' eye movements monitored to limit them to a single fixgtion for each  ...  This research was supported in part by Grants MH23878 from the National Institute of Mental Health and GB41176 from the National Science Foundation.

Neural correlates of confusability in recognition of morphologically complex Korean words

Jeahong Kim, JeYoung Jung, Kichun Nam, Manuel Perea
2021 PLoS ONE  
The TCE is known to occur at the very early stages of visual word recognition with such unit exchange as letters or syllables, but little is known about the brain mechanisms of TCE.  ...  When people confuse and reject a non-word that is created by switching two adjacent letters from an actual word, is called the transposition confusability effect (TCE).  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank to all participants.

2015 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
The puzzle of symbol form areas in the brain Written symbols such as letters or numbers are a late but far-reaching addition to the mental toolkit of humanity.  ...  Deep in the occipitotemporal cortex lie two functional regions, the visual word form area (VWFA) and the number form area (NFA), which are thought to play a special role in letter and number recognition  ...  Acknowledgments The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Commission Seventh  ...

Supporting the serial in the SERIOL model

Carol Whitney
2008 Language and Cognitive Processes  
Once the effects of frequency, number of syllables and orthographic-neighborhood size were factored out, RTs actually decreased with increasing length for words of three to five letters (and remained constant  ...  That is, an increased number of letters may reduce the time required for the lexical network to settle after the final letter fires (as compared to shorter words).  ...  The SERIOL account predicts that there should not be an RVF initial-character primacy and LVF final-character primacy for symbols.  ...

SERIOL Reading

Carol Whitney, Piers Cornelissen
2008 Language and Cognitive Processes  
We compare the SERIOL model to parallel models in their ability to explain experimental data at the lexical and sub-lexical levels.  ...  We find that the parallel models have difficulty accounting for position-independent letter priming, letter perceptibility patterns, and temporal effects.  ...  Mason (1982) also showed an external-character advantage for number strings.  ...
