  1. ncbi Mismatch negativity and late discriminative negativity in investigating speech perception and learning in children and infants
    M Cheour
    Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Turku, Finland
    Audiol Neurootol 6:2-11. 2001
    ..New data suggest that both of these responses have a special role in language processing, although both of them can also be elicited by nonspeech stimuli...
  2. ncbi Speech sounds learned by sleeping newborns
    M Cheour
    Language and the Developing Brain Laboratory, Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, and Department of Psychology, University of Turku, 20100 Turku, Finland
    Nature 415:599-600. 2002
    ..It is possible that such sleep training soon after birth could find application in clinical or educational situations...
  3. ncbi The auditory sensory memory trace decays rapidly in newborns
    Marie Cheour
    Language and the Developing Brain Laboratory, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Turku, Finland
    Scand J Psychol 43:33-9. 2002
    ..In view of the fact that in adults MMN is elicited even with a 10s SOA, these results imply that the time span of auditory memory is considerably shorter in neonates than in adults and 8-12-year-old children...
  4. ncbi Mismatch negativity shows that 3-6-year-old children can learn to discriminate non-native speech sounds within two months
    Marie Cheour
    Language and the Developing Brain Laboratory, Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Turku, Turku, Finland
    Neurosci Lett 325:187-90. 2002
    ..Accordingly, these data herald the vast potential MMN may entail for studying language learning, especially in situations where behavioral responses cannot be readily elicited...
  5. ncbi Event-related potentials associated with second language learning in children
    Anna Shestakova
    Cognitive Brain Research Unit, Department of Psychology, P O Box 9, University of Helsinki, Helsinki FIN 00014, Finland
    Clin Neurophysiol 114:1507-12. 2003
    ..In this study, we investigated learning-related changes in auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) of Finnish-speaking 3-6-year-old children caused by learning French language...
  6. ncbi Mismatch negativity and late discriminative negativity in sleeping human newborns
    Olga Martynova
    Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, University of Turku, Assistentinkatu 7, 20014 Turku, Finland
    Neurosci Lett 340:75-8. 2003
    ..These results suggest functional differences between infant and adult sleep...
  7. ncbi Electric brain responses obtained from newborn infants to changes in duration in complex harmonic tones
    Marie Cheour
    Department of Psychology, University of Miami, P O Box 248185, Coral Gables, FL 33124, USA
    Dev Neuropsychol 22:471-9. 2002
    ..This result is consistent with previous findings. The MMN amplitude, however, was surprisingly large in infants compared to older children...
  8. ncbi Magnetoencephalography is feasible for infant assessment of auditory discrimination
    Marie Cheour
    Department of Psychology, University of Miami, Coral Gables, FL 33124 0751, USA
    Exp Neurol 190:S44-51. 2004
    ..Our findings indicate that with the use of these new analysis routines, MEG will prove to be a very useful and more accessible experimental technique among pediatric populations...
  9. ncbi Infant speech perception activates Broca's area: a developmental magnetoencephalography study
    Toshiaki Imada
    Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Neuroreport 17:957-62. 2006
    ..The activation patterns observed in the superior temporal and inferior frontal regions provide initial evidence for the developmental emergence early in life of a perceptual-motor link for speech perception that may depend on experience...
  10. ncbi Wiener filter deconvolution of overlapping evoked potentials
    Tao Wang
    Department of Psychology, University of Miami, FL 33124, United States
    J Neurosci Methods 158:260-70. 2006
    ..The results are comparable to responses obtained by conventional and Maximum Length Sequence (MLS) methods...
