    • Long-distance neural synchrony correlates with processing strategies to compare fractions 

      Barraza, Paulo; Gómez, David M.; Oyarzún Ampuero, Felipe; Dartnell Roy, Pablo (Elsevier, 2014)
      Adults use different processing strategies to work with fractions. Depending on task requirements, theymay analyze the fraction components separately (componential processing strategy, CPS) or consider thefraction as a ...
    • Memory in the neonate brain 

      Benavides-Varela, Silvia; Gómez, David M.; Macagno, Francesco; Bion, Ricardo A H; Peretz, Isabelle; Mehler, Jacques (2011)
      Background: The capacity to memorize speech sounds is crucial for language acquisition. Newborn human infants can discriminate phonetic contrasts and extract rhythm, prosodic information, and simple regularities from speech. ...
    • Statistical speech segmentation in tone languages: the role of lexical tones 

      Gómez, David M.; Mok, Peggy; Ordin, Mikhail; Mehler, Jacques; Nespor, Marina (Sage Publications, 2018)
      Research has demonstrated distinct roles for consonants and vowels in speech processing. For example, consonants have been shown to support lexical processes, such as the segmentation of speech based on transitional ...
    • Studying neonates' language and memory capacities with functional near-infrared spectroscopy 

      Benavides-Varela, Silvia; Gómez, David M.; Mehler, Jacques (2011)
      The measurement of newborns' brain hemodynamic activity has improved our understanding of early cognitive processes, in particular of language acquisition. In this paper, we describe two experimental protocols adapted to ...
