Psycholing/ Compling Seminar: Lindy Comstock (Dept. of Neurosurgery)- Developing the auditory oddball paradigm as a tool for language mapping

May 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Successful language development after cerebral hemispherectomy is a vital concern for the well-being of children affected by intractable seizure disorders. Yet, this area of research is underrepresented in the literature, with only a handful of neuroimaging studies devoted to the reorganization of language areas after hemispherectomy. The goal of this project is to provide clinicians with a measure of neural connectivity to assess which pediatric hemispherectomy patients will ultimately develop language and what language-related impairments may arise. The proposed study…

Psycholing/ Compling Seminar: Claire-Moore Cantwell: Gambler’s Fallacy effects in probabilistic wug-test responses

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Abstract: Participants exhibit the ‘gambler’s fallacy’ in wug-test responses, adjusting their probability of a response based on previous responses. In particular, they avoid giving the same response three times in a row. This effect was strongest when two options were explicitly presented (a 2-alternative forced choice task), and weaker when participants were simply asked to provide a response. The effect weakened further when participants performed the wug-test under cognitive load.

Psycholing/ Compling Seminar: Jesse Harris practice talk “Let alone ellipsis and the case for enduring default focus: A pupillometry study”

April 28 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

In let alone ellipsis, the remnant typically stands in prosodic contrast with its correlate (e.g., John can’t run a MILE, let alone a MARATHON). To interpret the remnant (a marathon), the processor must locate the contrasting correlate phrase (a mile) in the prior clause from among other same-category competitors. Experimental and corpus research finds that the most local possible correlate is vastly preferred (Locality Bias; Harris & Carlson, 2015), a bias that has been observed for other clausal ellipsis structures. This…
