  3. Speech Recognition in Adverse Conditions: Explorations in Behaviour and Neuroscience

    Speech recognition in ‘adverse conditions’ has been a familiar area of research in computer science, engineering, and hearing sciences for several decades. In contrast, most psycholinguistic theories of speech recognition are built upon evidence gathered from tasks performed by healthy listeners on carefully recorded speech, in a quiet environment, and under conditions of undivided attention.

  4. Computational Approaches to Reading and Scene Perception

    This special issue of Visual Cognition brings together cutting-edge research from eight research groups around the world whose work is focused on these important topics. The goal of this special issue is to facilitate a constructive convergence of behavioral data and computational modeling to explore the fundamental nature of attention control, and particularly eye movement control, in viewing complex visual input.

  5. Handbook of Vowels and Vowel Disorders

    In the general study of speech and phonetics, vowels have stood in second place to consonants. But what vowels are, how they differ from one another, how they vary among speakers, and how they are subject to disorder, are questions that require a closer examination.

  6. Visual Word Recognition Volume 2: Meaning and Context, Individuals and Development

    Word recognition is the component of reading which involves the identification of individual words. Together the two volumes of Visual Word Recognition offer a state-of-the-art overview of contemporary research from leading figures in the field.

    This second volume examines how research on word recognition has been linked to the study of concepts and meaning, such as how morphemes affect word recognition, how the meaning of words affects their processing and the effect of priming on the processing of words.

  7. Visual Word Recognition Volume 1: Models and Methods, Orthography and Phonology

    Word recognition is the component of reading which involves the identification of individual words. Together the two volumes of Visual Word Recognition offer a state-of-the-art overview of contemporary research from leading figures in the field.

    This first volume outlines established theory, new models and key experimental evidence used to investigate visual word recognition: lexical decision and word naming.

  8. Translation of Thought to Written Text While Composing

    Translation of cognitive representations into written language is one of the most important processes in writing.

    This volume provides a long-awaited updated overview of the field for students, theorists, and empirical researchers in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and education, and teachers and clinicians who can use the research in their work.

  9. Writing

    This book captures the diversity and richness of writing as it relates to different forms of abilities, skills, competencies, and expertise.

    It will be an invaluable resource for researchers interested in language and cognition, and also educators and clinicians.

  10. From Mental Imagery to Spatial Cognition and Language

    Essays in Honour of Michel Denis

    Series: Psychology Press Festschrifts

    The nature of mental images and their relation to language has caused controversy amongst psychologists for years, and the so-called "imagery debate" is still unresolved. Fresh light is now being shed on this topic using recent findings in neuroscience and the development of behavioural studies. Reviewing state-of-the-art research in the field of imagery, visuo-spatial memory, spatial representation and language, with special emphasis on their interactions, the volume shows how, and to what extent, findings from the studies on imagery can positively influence and enrich other psychological areas.
