Stimulus and response conflict from a second language: Stroop interference in weakly-bilingual and recently-trained languages

Iva Šaban, James R. Schmidt
2021 Acta Psychologica  
In both studies, participants performed a bilingual version of a colour-word Stroop task.  ...  According to some models of early language learning, only one of these two types of conflict should emerge for non-fluent languages.  ...  The presence of response conflict for the newly learned foreign colour words also argues against a model assuming exclusively semantic learning in early language acquisition.  ...

Towards language acquisition in autonomous robots

Vadim Tikhanoff, Angelo Cangelosi, Jun Tani, Giorgio Metta
2008 Workshop on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems  
In this paper we present a novel cognitive robotic model to study language acquisition in autonomous robots through the grounding of words in sensorimotor representations.  ...  The vision acquisition module takes input from the robot's cameras and applies approximation techniques for the purpose of detecting shapes, size and colour features of individual objects.  ...

Achieving colour-accurate data from images: challenges and solutions

Adolfo Molada-Tebar, Geert Julien Verhoeven
2022 Zenodo  
The problem with colour is that it is a matter of perception. In other words: colour is subjective.  ...  As such, the acquisition of colour-accurate digital images is one of the primary research topics in the international graffiti project INDIGO.  ...  This methodology can be used in combination with other techniques for the proper documentation of colour.  ...

Time course of colour-word contingency learning: Practice curves, pre-exposure benefits, unlearning, and relearning

James R. Schmidt, Jan De Houwer
2016 Learning and Motivation  
In a second experiment, words were pre-exposed in a neutral hue before being coloured. This increased the magnitude of the learning effect, suggesting a preparation time benefit.  ...  In the current report with the colour-word contingency learning paradigm, participants were given an extended practice phase before introducing predictive stimuli (words).  ...  Nonwords were predictive of colour word targets, much in the same way that neutral words were predictive of print colour targets in the present investigation.  ...

Chromatic transitions in the emergence of syntax networks

Bernat Corominas-Murtra, Martí Sànchez Fibla, Sergi Valverde, Ricard Solé
2018 Royal Society Open Science  
In particular, rapid transitions seem to occur as children reach the age of two, which seems to separate a two-word, tree-like network of syntactic relations among words from the scale-free graphs associated  ...  The data analysis is compared to a null model of network growth dynamics which is shown to display non-trivial and sensible differences.  ...  A data-driven, syntax-free model that generates random child's utterances having the same statistics of word production as Peter and Carl datasets is used as a null model [7] .  ...

Beyond perception: synaesthesia as a psycholinguistic phenomenon

Interference in Dutch–French Bilinguals

James R. Schmidt, Robert J. Hartsuiker, Jan De Houwer
2018 Experimental Psychology  
In the present manuscript, we investigate the source of congruency effects in a group of Dutch-French bilinguals.  ...  The typical finding is impaired responding when the word and colour are incongruent (e.g., "red" in blue) relative to congruent (e.g., "red" in red).  ...  In the Stroop task (Stroop, 1935 ; for a review, see MacLeod, 1991) , participants are tasked with the goal of identifying the print colour of a colour word, while ignoring the meaning of the word itself  ...

A Novel Approach to EEG Speech Activity Detection with Visual Stimuli and Mobile BCI

Marianna Koctúrová, Jozef Juhár
2021 Applied Sciences  
The novel approach used in this research involved the use visual stimuli, such as reading and colour naming, and signals of speech activity detectable by EEG technology.  ...  Our experimental results demonstrated F1 score of 86.80% and 83.69% speech detection accuracy based on the analysis of EEG signal from single subject and cross-subject models respectively.  ...  The pronunciation of individual words was alternated by longer pauses of inactivity.  ...
