Elzinga, Cees H.; Studer, Matthias – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
We explore the relations between the notion of distance and a feature set--based concept of similarity and show that this concept of similarity has a spatial interpretation that is complementary to distance: it is interpreted as "direction." Furthermore, we show how proper normalization leads to distances that can be directly interpreted…

Mersad, Karima; Dehaene-Lambertz, Ghislaine – Developmental Science, 2016
The auditory neural representations of infants can easily be studied with electroencephalography using mismatch experimental designs. We recorded high-density event-related potentials while 3-month-old infants were listening to trials consisting of CV syllables produced with different vowels (/bX/ or /gX/). The consonant remained the same for the…

Jaekel, Brittany N.; Newman, Rochelle S.; Goupell, Matthew J. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2017
Purpose: Normal-hearing (NH) listeners rate normalize, temporarily remapping phonemic category boundaries to account for a talker's speech rate. It is unknown if adults who use auditory prostheses called cochlear implants (CI) can rate normalize, as CIs transmit degraded speech signals to the auditory nerve. Ineffective adjustment to rate…

Introduction: Obtaining higher education increases the amount of stressors physically, mentally, and emotionally. College is more than parties, pledging, and freedom from authoritative figures. For many young adults, it is the time to learn independence, responsibility, and roads to success. Today's students are making life-altering decisions…
