Azevedo, Nancy, Arielle Crestol, Kathleen Berkun, Alexandra Papathanasopoulos, Leen Yamani, Alexander Rokos, Eva Kehayia and Stefanie Blain-Moraes 2022 A N400 event-related potential elicitation paradigm for Canadian French speakersThe Mental Lexicon 17:1, pp. 104–131 | Article
The N400 event-related brain potential (ERP) can be used to evaluate language comprehension, and may be a particularly powerful tool for the assessment of individuals who are behaviourally unresponsive. This study presents a set of semantic violation sentences developed in Canadian French and… read more
Azevedo, Nancy, Ruth Ann Atchley, N.P. Vasavan Nair and Eva Kehayia 2021 Processing lexicality in healthy aging and Alzheimer’s disease: P3 ERP amplitude as an index of lexical categorizationThe Mental Lexicon 16:2/3, pp. 204–239 | Article
To explore how processing lexicality may change with aging and in the presence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), we conducted two experiments investigating lexicality judgements using an on-line behavioural psycholinguistic methodology and electrophysiological/event-related potential (ERP) methods;… read more
Tsiamas, Athanasios, Gonia Jarema and Eva Kehayia 2020 Does stress matter? An investigation of Greek compound processingThe Mental Lexicon 15:3, pp. 485–507 | Article
This study investigates the effect of stress change during compound processing in Modern Greek. Twenty-five native speakers were tested in a cross-modal lexical decision task and a naming task in order to test for performance differences across stress-change vs. non-stress-change compounds. No… read more
Azevedo, Nancy, Eva Kehayia, Ruth Ann Atchley and N.P. Vasavan Nair 2015 Lexicality judgements in healthy aging and in individuals with Alzheimer's disease: Effect of neighbourhood densityThe Mental Lexicon 10:2, pp. 286–311 | Article
Neighbourhood density (N) has been shown to influence how lexical stimuli are accessed. In young adults, a large N is facilitatory for words but inhibitory for pseudowords in English. While there is a paucity of studies probing N as people age, results to date point towards changes in lexical… read more
Azevedo, Nancy, Ruth Ann Atchley and Eva Kehayia 2015 Electrifying the lexical decision: Examining a P3 ERP component reflecting early lexical categorizationThe Mental Lexicon 10:3, pp. 339–363 | Article
The current research utilizes lexical decision within an oddball ERP paradigm to study early lexical processing. Nineteen undergraduate students completed four blocks of the oddball lexical decision task (Nonword targets among Words, Word targets among Nonwords, Word targets among Pseudowords, and… read more
Mondini, Sara, Eva Kehayia, Brendan Gillon, Giorgio Arcara and Gonia Jarema 2009 Lexical access of mass and count nouns: How word recognition reaction times correlate with lexical and morpho-syntactic processingThe Mental Lexicon 4:3, pp. 354–379 | Article
Two psycholinguistic experiments were carried out in Italian to test the role played by the feature that distinguishes mass nouns from count nouns, as well as by the feature that distinguishes singular nouns from plural nouns. The first experiment, a simple lexical decision task, revealed a… read more
Tsapkini, Kyrana, Gonia Jarema and Eva Kehayia 2002 The role of verbal morphology in aphasia during lexical access: Evidence from GreekClinical Linguistics: Theory and applications in speech pathology and therapy, Fava, Elisabetta (ed.), pp. 315–335 | Article
