    Do Children With Developmental Language Disorder Activate Scene Knowledge to Guide Visual Attention? Effect of Object-Scene Inconsistencies on Gaze Allocation.Andrea Helo, Ernesto Guerra, Carmen Julia Coloma, Paulina Aravena-Bravo & Pia Rämä - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    Our visual environment is highly predictable in terms of where and in which locations objects can be found. Based on visual experience, children extract rules about visual scene configurations, allowing them to generate scene knowledge. Similarly, children extract the linguistic rules from relatively predictable linguistic contexts. It has been proposed that the capacity of extracting rules from both domains might share some underlying cognitive mechanisms. In the present study, we investigated the link between language and scene knowledge development. To do (...)

    Processing Speaker-Specific Information in Two Stages During the Interpretation of Referential Precedents.Edmundo Kronmüller & Ernesto Guerra - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    To reduce ambiguity across a conversation, interlocutors reach temporary conventions or referential precedents on how to refer to an entity. Despite their central role in communication, the cognitive underpinnings of the interpretation of precedents remain unclear, specifically the role and mechanisms by which information related to the speaker is integrated. We contrast predictions of one-stage, original two-stage, and extended two-stage models for the processing of speaker information and provide evidence favoring the latter: we show that both stages are sensitive to (...)

    The Role of Literal Features During Processing of Novel Verbal Metaphors.Camilo R. Ronderos, Ernesto Guerra & Pia Knoeferle - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    When a word is used metaphorically (for example “walrus” in the sentence “The president is a walrus”), some features of that word's meaning (“very fat,” “slow-moving”) are carried across to the metaphoric interpretation while other features (“has large tusks,” “lives near the north pole”) are not. What happens to these features that relate only to the literal meaning during processing of novel metaphors? In four experiments, the present study examined the role of the feature of physical containment during processing of (...)
