A typical N400 event-related potential (ERP) component occurs when the brain detects a semantic contradiction and can be elicited by the canonical experiment where the final word of a sentence contradicts what a listener is expecting to hear. In the absence of an N400 elicitation paradigm in...
Contextually predictable, high frequency, competitor-dense words are often produced with less phonetically contrastive categories in spontaneous speech, often manifested with shorter durations. The present study investigates the role of temporal variation in the recognition of isolated words...
Synthesis of a homologous series of galactofuranose-containing mycobacterial arabinogalactan fragmentsDownload
Mycobacteria, including the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis the causative agent of tuberculosis, produce a complex cell wall structure made of carbohydrates and lipids. The major structural element of the mycobacterial cell wall is a glycoconjugate called the mycolic...
We report results from two experiments in which the effects of rhyme prime (RP) are investigated by manipulating the properties of the interveners between prime and target. Studies of visual priming report that interveners have differing effects depending on the types of processing they require;...
In this study we address whether contextual constraints can override bottom-up phonological information during auditory word recognition. Standard models of word recognition assume that cohort competition arises when auditory input increases the activation of word-forms with matching phonological...
In a self-paced reading study, we investigated the extent to which non-native speakers use biasing context in idiom processing, and whether idiom literality limits these effects as it does in native speakers. Idioms with a high potential for literal interpretations (e.g., break the ice) and a low...
I bet I’ll remember “biochemistry” – Meta-memory as a function of lexical features and language backgroundDownload
Previous research has shown that people are more likely to remember positive and negative words compared to neutral words. The present study investigates whether participants with varying language backgrounds would differentially remember words based on the words’ lexical feature of valence. In a...
Indonesian has two prefixes which express a range of semantic functions (e.g. agent, instrument, patient). One prefix, PEN-, has six allomorphs (peng-, peny-, pe-, pen-, pem-, penge-). A second prefix, PE-, is described as having similar form and meaning as pe-. In this study, we used...
A Route to Polyprenol Pyrophosphate-Based Probes of O- Polysaccharide Biosynthesis in Klebsiella pneumoniae O2aDownload
An approach for the assembly of polyprenol pyrophosphate-based probes of O-polysaccharide biosynthesis in Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype O2a is described. This convergent route features high yielding, diastereoselective glycosylations and the late stage installation of the polyprenol...
Synthetic Polyprenol-Pyrophosphate Linked Oligosaccharides Are Efficient Substrates for Mycobacterial Galactan Biosynthetic EnzymesDownload
Mycobacteria, including the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis, produce a complex cell wall that is critical for their survival. The largest structural component of the cell wall, the mycolylarabinogalactanpeptidoglycan complex, has at its core a galactan domain composed of...
