- How speakers interrupt themselves in managing problems in speaking: evidence from self-repairsMandana Seyfeddinipur
Department of Psychology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 2130, USA
Cognition 108:837-42. 2008..The results showed that speakers interrupted themselves not at the moment they detected the problem but at the moment they were ready to produce the repair. Speakers preferred fluency over accuracy...
- Metaphor explanation attenuates the right-hand preference for depictive co-speech gestures that imitate actionsSotaro Kita
School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham B15 2TT, UK
Brain Lang 101:185-97. 2007..Findings suggest that the activation of the right hemisphere in the metaphor condition reduces the likelihood of left hemisphere generation of gestures that imitate action, thus attenuating the right-hand preference...
- Generation of co-speech gestures based on spatial imagery from the right-hemisphere: evidence from split-brain patientsSotaro Kita
University of Bristol, Department of Experimental Psychology, Bristol, UK
Cortex 44:131-9. 2008..It is concluded that the linguistically non-dominant (right) hemisphere alone can generate co-speech gestures based on spatial imagery, just as the left-hemisphere can...
- The nature of gestures' beneficial role in spatial problem solvingMingyuan Chu
School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, England
J Exp Psychol Gen 140:102-16. 2011..We concluded that gestures enhance performance on spatial visualization tasks by improving the internal computation of spatial transformations. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)...
- Spontaneous gestures during mental rotation tasks: insights into the microdevelopment of the motor strategyMingyuan Chu
School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
J Exp Psychol Gen 137:706-23. 2008..When solving a problem regarding the physical world, adults go through developmental processes similar to internalization and symbolic distancing in young children, albeit within a much shorter time span....
- Split-brain patients neglect left personal space during right-handed gesturesHedda Lausberg
Department of Neurology, Free University of Berlin, Hindenburgdamm 30, D 12200, Berlin, Germany
Neuropsychologia 41:1317-29. 2003..Rather, the results provide support for theoretical models that consider the left hemisphere as specialised for processing the right half of space during the execution of descriptive gestures...
- Pantomime to visual presentation of objects: left hand dyspraxia in patients with complete callosotomyHedda Lausberg
Department of Neurology, Free University of Berlin, Germany
Brain 126:343-60. 2003....
- The content of the message influences the hand choice in co-speech gestures and in gesturing without speakingHedda Lausberg
Department of Neurology, Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany
Brain Lang 86:57-69. 2003..The influence of hemispheric language lateralization on the hand choice in co-speech gestures appeared to be minor. Instead, speaking seemed to induce a sequential organization of the iconic gestures...
- Development of cross-linguistic variation in speech and gesture: motion events in English and TurkishAsli Ozyürek
Center for Language Studies, Department of Linguistics, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Dev Psychol 44:1040-54. 2008....
- On-line integration of semantic information from speech and gesture: insights from event-related brain potentialsAsli Ozyürek
F C Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
J Cogn Neurosci 19:605-16. 2007..The neural evidence for similar integration of information from speech and gesture emphasizes the tight interconnection between speech and co-speech gestures...
- Language-specific and universal influences in children's syntactic packaging of Manner and Path: a comparison of English, Japanese, and TurkishShanley Allen
School of Education, Boston University, 2 Sherborn Street, Boston, MA 02215, USA
Cognition 102:16-48. 2007..Thus, both language-specific and universal tendencies guide the development of complex spatial expressions...
- Children creating core properties of language: evidence from an emerging sign language in NicaraguaAnn Senghas
Department of Psychology, Barnard College of Columbia University, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027, USA
Science 305:1779-82. 2004..Thus, children naturally possess learning abilities capable of giving language its fundamental structure...
- Can language restructure cognition? The case for spaceAsifa Majid
Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Postbus 310, 6500 AH Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Trends Cogn Sci 8:108-14. 2004....
- Returning the tables: language affects spatial reasoningStephen C Levinson
Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, PO Box 310, NL 6500 AH Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Cognition 84:155-88. 2002..We further try to discern exactly what theory drives their presumption that language can have no cognitive efficacy, and conclude that their position is undermined by a wide range of considerations...
