Self-monitoring for speech errors: Two-stage detection and repair with and without auditory feedback

Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Memory and Language, Volume 95 Author(s): Sieb G. Nooteboom, Hugo Quené Two experiments are reported, eliciting segmental speech errors and self-repairs. Error frequencies, detection frequencies, error-to-cutoff times and cutoff-to-repair times were assessed with and without auditory feedback, for errors against four types of segmental oppositions. Main hypotheses are (a) prearticulatory and postarticulatory detection of errors is reflected in a bimodal distribution of error-to-cutoff times; (b) after postarticulatory error detection repairs need to be planned in a time-consuming way, but not after prearticulatory detection; (c) postarticulatory error detection depends on auditory feedback. Results confirm hypotheses (a) and (b) but not (c). Internal and external detection are temporally separated by some 500ms on average, fast and slow repairs by some 700ms. Error detection does not depend on audition. This seems self-evident for prearticulatory but not for postarticulatory error detection. Theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.

Two Canadian government agencies are sponsoring legislation that will prohibit the import, use and sale of asbestos and products containing the cancer-causing mineral. The proposed Prohibition of Asbestos and Asbestos Products Regulations, sponsored by Environment and Climate Change Canada and Health Canada, comes more than a year after the Canadian government promised a comprehensive ban on asbestos by 2018. Additional amendments to the existing Export of Substances on the Export Control List Regulations (ESECLR) would restrict the export of all forms of asbestos, going beyond Canada’s commitment under the Rotterdam...

(Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona)) Published in Nature Cell Biology (NCB), the study shows that the EXD2 protein is critical for the mitochondria, the cell's powerhouses, to produce energy. This protein was previously thought to be located in the cell nucleus and to be involved in DNA repair. The results contribute to our basic understanding of mitochondria and suggest that EXD2 could be important for fertility and represent a potential target for cancer therapy.

One goal of regenerative medicine is to repair damaged tissue. This requires not only generating new cells of the proper phenotype, but also selecting for those that properly integrate into sites of injury. In our laboratory we are using a cell-migration–based in vivo selection system to generate antibodies that induce...

Opinion statementPurpose of reviewEndoscopic therapies for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are minimally invasive techniques which fill the gap between the medical therapy with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and surgical fundoplication. The main endoscopic therapies currently available in the USA are transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) using EsophyX device or less commonly, Medigus Ultrasonic Surgical Endostapler, and radiofrequency energy delivery to lower esophageal sphincter using Stretta device. Our aim was to examine the available evidence for these therapies.Recent findingsConsistent evidence for subjec...

Tissue injury leads to early wound-associated reactive oxygen species (ROS) production that mediate tissue regeneration. To identify mechanisms that function downstream of redox signals that modulate regeneration, avimentin reporter of mesenchymal cells was generated by driving GFP from thevimentin promoter in zebrafish. Early redox signaling mediatedvimentin reporter activity at the wound margin. Moreover, both ROS and vimentin were necessary for collagen production and reorganization into projections at the leading edge of the wound. Second harmonic generation time-lapse imaging revealed that the collagen projections wer...

Jan Rosocha Articular cartilage has limited capacity for natural regeneration and repair. In the present study, we evaluated kartogenin (KGN), a bioactive small heterocyclic molecule, for its effect on in vitro proliferation and chondrogenic differentiation of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (hBMSCs) in monolayer culture and in co-culture models in vitro. OA osteochondral cylinders and hBMSCs were collected during total knee replacement. The effect of KGN on hBMSCs during 21 days of culture was monitored by real-time proliferation assay, immunofluorescence staining, histological assay, scanning elec...
