Individual differences in cue weights are correlated across contrasts

How systematic are ID in cue weights across contrasts? Do ID in cue weights relate to other aspects of speech perception?

Inhibition predicts lexical competition in older adults’ spoken word recognition

Do older and younger adults differ in their sensitivity to VOT? How does lexical competition affect older adults’ word recognition? Do individual differences in inhibition modulate lexical competition?

Lexical effects in older adults’ sensorimotor adaptation for speech

What is the nature of the lexical bias in older adults? Is the increased lexical effect in older adults implicit or a post-hoc decision bias?

Lexically-guided and distributional learning for speech in younger and older adults

Do older adults remain perceptually flexible when lexical context is not available? Does performance in one perceptual learning task predict learning in the other? What cognitive factors influence perceptual flexibility? Are they different across age groups?
