    Erin E Hannon
    Department of Psychology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
    J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 30:956-74. 2004

  2. ncbi request reprint Metrical categories in infancy and adulthood
    Erin E Hannon
    Cornell University
    Psychol Sci 16:48-55. 2005
    ..These findings imply that the metrical biases of North American adults reflect enculturation processes rather than processing predispositions for simple meters...

    Erin E Hannon
    Department of Psychology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
    Cogn Psychol 50:354-77. 2005

    Department of Psychology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Nevada 89154, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1252:92-9. 2012
