  • Phonological Memory and L2 Vocabulary Learning in a Narrated Story Task. [Journal Article]
    J Psycholinguist Res. 2020 Jul 04 [Online ahead of print]Hummel KM
  • The objective of this study was to explore the role played by phonological memory (PM) in the learning of new second language (L2) vocabulary presented in a narrated story. The proposal was that individuals with a strong PM would do better on this largely auditory task than those with poor PM capacity, since fewer visual/written cues could make remembering vocabulary a more challenging task. Part…

    Brain Lang. 2020 Jun 23; 208:104826.Santesteban M, Zawiszewski A, Hatzidaki A
  • Successful subject-verb agreement production requires retrieving the verbal forms that agree with the features of the subject head noun and not of other nouns in the sentence. We investigate, for the first time, the electrophysiological indexes of number attraction and word order during agreement production. Twenty-four Basque native speakers were tested while producing auxiliary verbs during sen…
  • Answering the Call for Standardized Reporting of Clinical Ethics Consultation Data. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Ethics. 2020 Summer; 31(2):173-177.Feldman SL, Rias SH, … Ford PJ
  • Benchmarks against which healthcare ethics consultation (HCEC) services can assess their performance are needed. As first-generation benchmarks continue to be developed, it is the obligation of the field to continually evaluate how these measures reflect the performance of any single HCEC service. This will be possible only with widespread reporting of standardized data points. In their article i…
  • Unconscious and Distinctive Control of Vocal Pitch and Timbre During Altered Auditory Feedback. [Journal Article]
    Front Psychol. 2020; 11:1224.Xu M, Tachibana RO, … Homae F
  • Vocal control plays a critical role in smooth social communication. Speakers constantly monitor auditory feedback (AF) and make adjustments when their voices deviate from their intentions. Previous studies have shown that when certain acoustic features of the AF are artificially altered, speakers compensate for this alteration in the opposite direction. However, little is known about how the voca…

  • Long-Acting Reversible Contraception Free-of-Charge: Two-year Discontinuation, its Risk Factors and Reasons. [Journal Article]
    Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]H ST, K GF, … Oskari H
  • CONCLUSIONS: At two years, the use of implant and copper intrauterine-device was more likely to be discontinued than that of levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system. Women younger than 30 years and those that gave birth in the preceding year, spoke another native language than Finnish/Swedish, or had a history of sexually transmitted infection were more likely to discontinue. Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system was least likely to be removed due to bleeding disturbances.
  • What Are We Missing? How Language Impacts Trauma Narratives. [Journal Article]
    J Child Adolesc Trauma. 2020 Jun; 13(2):153-161.Bailey C, McIntyre E, … Venta A
  • The potential for the development of psychopathology in aolescent refugees and asylees is high due to the trauma inherent in their experience. Yet, psychopathology rooted in trauma has proven amenable to treatment. Nonetheless, as most clinicians are monolingual, the language difference between clinician and client may be a barrier of desensitization and processing typically characteristic of tra…
  • Exchange of medicinal plant information in California missions. [Journal Article]
    J Ethnobiol Ethnomed. 2020 Jun 15; 16(1):35.McBride JR, Cavero RY, … McBride DL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Sharing of information concerning medicinal plants did occur during the Mission period, but the number of documented species was limited. A number of possible factors discouraged this exchange. These include (1) imbalance of power between the priests and the Native Americans, (2) suppression of indigenous knowledge and medical practices by the Mission priests, (3) language barriers, (4) reduction of availability of medicinal herbs around the Mission due to introduced agricultural practices, (5) desire to protect knowledge of medicinal herbs by Native American shaman, (6) administrative structure at the Missions which left little time for direct interaction between the priests and individual Native Americans, (7) loss of knowledge of herbal medicine by the Native Americans over time at the Missions, and (8) limited transportation opportunities for reciprocal the shipment of medicinal plants between California and Spain. Three possible factors were identified that contributed to a greater sharing of information between the Native Americans and the Californios in the post-Mission period. These were (1) more one-to-one interactions between the Californios and the Native Americans, (2) many of the Californios were mestizos whose mothers or grandmothers were Native Americans, and (3) lack of pressure on the part of the Californios to suppress Native American beliefs and medicinal practices.
