A new test of action verb naming: Normative data from 290 Italian adults

Journal: 

Neurological Sciences

Date: 

November, 2019

In this paper, we provide normative values for the action verb naming test used in Crepaldi et al. (2006, Neuropsychologia, 44, 73-89). This work makes the test, whose material is available upon request to the authors, effectively usable in day-to-day clinical activity.

Long term follow-up of neuropsychological functions in patients with high grade gliomas: can cognitive status predict patients' outcome after surgery?

Journal: 

Acta Neurochirurgica

Date: 

September, 2019

Here we tested whether the neuropsychological profile of High-Grade Glioma patients can predict tumour relapse, on an unselected sample of 102 patients. It turns out that this is indeed the case. We also developed and validated a wide-spectrum neuropsychological battery for HGG. [Click on the title to read more.] 

Masked morphological priming tracks the development of a fully mature lexical system in L2

Journal:

Date: 

June, 2019

This paper investigates masked orthographic and morphological priming in L1 Italian, L2 English readers, whose L2 proficiency profile was assessed with a wide battery of tests. Read more by clicking on the title or, to see what we found, check out our pre-print here

 

Orthographic consistency influences morphological processing in reading aloud: Evidence from a cross-linguistic study

Journal: 

Developmental Science

Date: 

November, 2018

This is a cross-linguistic experiment that we were involved in by Betty Mousikou and Sascha Schroeder. We test children's reading of morphologically structured words and nonwords in English, German, Italian and French, and find that orthographic consistency modulates the role of morphemes in reading aloud.

Consistency measures individuate dissociating semantic activation networks in priming paradigms: A new look on semantics in the processing of (complex) words

Journal: 

Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology

Date: 

June, 2018

Here we show (again, see Marelli et al., QJEP 2015, Marelli and Amenta, in press at BRM, and Amenta et al., PBR 2017) how the reading/language system is sensitive to islands of (probabilistic) regularity in the mapping between form and language. In particular, we show how this qualifies priming patterns, both morphological and semantic, masked and overt. [Read more by clicking on the title.]
