Title: "How infants build a semantic system: Lexical-Semantic and Phonological Priming in Early Lexical Development.". by Prof. Kim Plunkett from the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford (UK). Please, see below for the abstract.

Abstract: 

Several decades of research documents that infants as young as 12-months-old understand the meaning of many dozens of words insofar as they are able identify an appropriate referent for a word when give a choice between alternatives. The ability to identify appropriate referents, given a label, develops rapidly during the second year of life, so that by the time an infant reaches her second birthday she may understand many hundreds of words. Although we know a great deal about the types of words that infants understand and produce during their second year – so-called word-world relationships, surprisingly, we know virtually nothing about their appreciation of the meaning relationships between words themselves. These meaning relations lie at the heart of the human semantic system: Part of knowing what the word ‘dog’ means involves knowing, if only implicitly, how it relates to the meaning of ‘cat’ or ‘bone’. A proper understanding of semantic development involves identification of how and when infants begin to link words together in a network of meanings, thereby going beyond word-world associations to achieve a system of meanings that underpins human communication.
The investigation of the structure of the mental lexicon in adults has relied heavily on priming studies: Words which prime each other do so because they are linked together in the lexicon. We adopt a similar strategy for investigating the structure of the infant lexicon using an adaptation of the inter-modal preferential looking task in which levels of lexical activation are indexed by visual preference for a target over a distracter object under linguistically primed versus unprimed conditions. The results of our studies indicate that robust semantic/associative and phonological priming is in place by 21–24 months-old whereas 18-month-olds fail to show clear cut sensitivity to priming. Additional control experiments have revealed that the locus of these priming effects are at the lexical-semantic level, indicating that before infants reach their second birthday they have already started to form semantic/associative links between words in a fashion that begins to resemble the structure of the adult lexicon.

November 19th: Talk by Prof. James T. Enns

 

THIS FRIDAY, November 19th at 12h in room 52.S29 at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.  

Title: "Following the masters: What Rembrandt´s eyes tell us about looking at portraits". by Prof. James T. Enns from the Department of Psychology, University of British Columbia (Canada). Please, see below for the abstract.

If you would like to have a chat with the speaker,  you can contact the Host (Salvador Soto-Faraco).

 

Abstract: 

A painted portrait differs from a photo in that selected regions are often rendered in much sharper detail than other regions. Artists claim these choices guide viewer’ gaze and influence their appreciation of the portrait, but these claims are difficult to test because increased portrait detail is typically typically associated with greater meaning, stronger lighting, and a more central location.  In four experiments we monitored viewer gaze and recorded viewer preferences for portraits rendered with a parameterized non-photorealistic technique to mimic Rembrandt. Results showed that viewers’ gaze is attracted to and held longer by regions of relatively finer detail (Experiments 1, 2), by textural highlighting (Experiment 3), and that artistic appreciation increases when portraits strongly biased gaze (Experiments 1, 2, 4). These findings have implications for understanding both human vision science and visual art.
