Exploration of serial structure procedural learning in children with language impairment. doi: 10.1177/0956797610362646. B. For example, learners with elevated depressive symptoms, which are associated with suppressed declarative memory, show better information-integration learning (Maddox et al., 2014). Explicit memory is the conscious and intentional recall of factual information, previous experiences, and knowledge. Neurosci., 1997, 9: 534–547. It is, of course, impossible to equate the real-world language-learning context across infant and adult learners. Behav. The options for letters were listed at the top of the dialog box, with participants entering “NA” if they had forgotten one of the letters. This supports a model of category learning that argues that implicit skills predict cue integration (COVIS; Ashby et al., 1998). Strings had the form aXd, bXe, and cXf, with ending non-words (d, e, f) dependent on beginning non-words (a, b, c). Incidental learning of sound categories is impaired in developmental dyslexia. Effects of early and late nocturnal sleep on declarative and procedural memory. The editor and reviewers' affiliations are the latest provided on their Loop research profiles and may not reflect their situation at the time of review. Sci. doi: 10.1016/j.jneumeth.2006.11.017. This constant set size contrasts with prior work in which set sizes typically vary between two and five (or six) sentence-letter combinations (e.g., Daneman and Carpenter, 1980; Kane et al., 2004). Analysis, synthesis, and perception of voice quality variations among female and male talkers. Learn. Neurosci. In the statistical analyses reported in the Results, we used letter-recall accuracy as the working-memory predictor. Implicit learning of sequential regularities has been linked to an individual’s ability to use contextual and lexically predictive information when comprehending spoken language (Misyak et al., 2010a). Comparing decision bound and exemplar models of categorization. doi: 10.1016/S0022-5371(80)90312-6, DeCaro, M. S., Thomas, R. D., and Beilock, S. L. (2008). Infants rely more heavily on implicit/procedural learning than explicit/declarative learning, because the neural structures that support implicit learning mature relatively early in typical development, while those that sustain explicit learning are slower to develop, undergoing significant maturation through 10 months of age (Jones and Herbert, 2006; Richmond and Nelson, 2007). Number of Linear Blocks ranged from 0 to 7 instead of from 0 to 6, because of the inclusion of block 0 (as in Experiment 1, a score of 7 represents never using a linear strategy). Pediatric traumatic brain injury and procedural memory. Following the completion of the immediate paragraph-recall task, participants completed the working-memory assessment, which took 20–30 min, depending on the participant’s speed.2 Participants next completed the declarative delayed paragraph-recall task: they were asked to recall the same stories again and enter their responses into dialog boxes without any reminder cues. Individ. doi: 10.1176/appi.ajp.2008.07040574, Goudbeek, M., Swingley, D., and Smits, R. (2009). We intentionally included a native-language dimension (F2, used to differentiate the /i/ vs. /u/ vowels in English) and a non-native dimension (F0, which is not phonologically contrastive in English), to simulate L2 learning, in which some L2 dimensions might overlap with L1 and others will not. Training Japanese listeners to identify English /r/ and /l/. Soc. (2002). The model overall explained a significant proportion of variance in accuracy scores [R2 = 0.148, F(3,37) = 3.32, p = 0.030]. Thus, it could be that our results reflect the fact that learners with stronger procedural-memory skills are more successful at integrating multiple dimensions in category learning, but strong declarative- and working-memory skills are also beneficial in that they enable learners to efficiently shift over to an optimal cue-integration strategy. doi: 10.1037/a0034969, Maddox, W. T., Chandrasekaran, B., Smayda, K., Yi, H.-G., Koslov, S., and Beevers, C. G. (2014). In a regression analysis that also included declarative-memory skills and working-memory skills as predictors, procedural-memory skills were the only significant predictor. Figure 2 indicates the 2 sets of 6 “boundary” stimuli with solid and dashed circles, respectively. Rev. Ann. The design of the working-memory task appears to have contributed to the ceiling effects we found, as only a set size of three sentence-letter combinations was used. Sequential expectations: the role of prediction-based learning in language. Figure 5 depicts a scatterplot, with a best-fit line, for Number of Linear Blocks as a function of declarative-memory skills. J. Acoust. In a recent paper, Morgan-Short et al. Carpenter, K.

Two different approaches aimed at understanding learning and memory were introduced in this symposium. Following each response, participants were provided with either positive or negative feedback, based on their answers. 119, 3059–3071. In a regression analysis that also included procedural-memory skills and working-memory skills as predictors, declarative-memory skills were the only significant predictor. Twenty-nine undergraduates from the University of Arizona who were native speakers of English and over the age of 18 were recruited from the Psychology participant pool and participated for course credit in one 2-h session. A., and Ashby, F. G. (2014). We used smiley and frowny faces so that the same feedback could be used with preschool children in related studies (Quam et al., 2015, unpublished). 1:31. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2010.00031, Misyak, J. doi: 10.1177/0956797613509112, Spiering, B.

The leftmost column of the grid contained only the beginning non-word items of the string (sampled from the set [a, b, c]), the center column contained the middle X tokens (sampled from the set [X1…X24]), and the rightmost column contained only the ending non-word items of the string (sampled from the set [d, e, f]). Soc. 4, pp. Optimal learning required integrating information from both cues. Psychol. In a regression analysis that also included declarative-memory skills and working-memory skills as predictors, procedural-memory skills were the only significant predictor. doi: 10.1207/S15327078IN0201_5, Namy, L.

The two sessions were typically scheduled 2 days apart (due to scheduling constraints, two participants’ sessions were 3 days apart, and two participants’ sessions were 6 days apart). Beginning training with difficult training items that straddle the category boundary has been shown to improve learning of information-integration categories (Spiering and Ashby, 2008). Res. Van Gorp, W. G., Altshuler, L., Theberge, D. C., & Mintz, J. Best, C. T., and Tyler, M. T. (2007). Even within the COVIS framework, more recent discussions have focused on system-level interaction, including the possibility that on some tasks it might be beneficial to flexibly switch between category-learning strategies trial-by-trial (Erickson, 2008; Ashby and Maddox, 2011). (2011). Nat. On day 1, the second task was the procedural-memory task. On Day 2, procedural memory significantly predicted the number of linear blocks, while working-memory significantly predicted accuracy. Finally, the fifth model assumed that the participant used the optimal, diagonal linear boundary (OPT). Grammar predicts procedural learning and consolidation deficits in children with specific language impairment. 68, 1176–1190. 54, Issue.

Deferred feedback sharply dissociates implicit and explicit category learning. The neural basis of implicit learning and memory: a review of neuropsychological and neuroimaging research. They then answered “yes” or “no” to a series of questions assessing their memory for the content of each story. doi: 10.1017/S0142716415000600, McCandliss, B. D., Fiez, J. Based on the COVIS model of category learning (Ashby et al., 1998) and the Procedural Deficit Hypothesis for language learning (Ullman and Pierpont, 2005; Kemény and Lukács, 2010; Hedenius et al., 2011; Lum et al., 2012), we had predicted that procedural skills would best predict learning outcomes for categories that require integrating two dimensions using a non-verbalizable strategy. The multiple linear regression model including procedural prediction accuracy, declarative recall, and working-memory letter recall as predictors showed no significant effects (see Table 2 for standardized coefficients betas for all regression models predicting Block 6 Accuracy across Experiments 1 and 2). The procedural-memory, declarative-memory, and working-memory assessments were identical to Experiment 1. Exploring memory in infancy: deferred imitation and the development of declarative memory. 52, 321–335. Neurobiol Learn Mem 86: 241–247. Across two experiments, we taught healthy adults an information-integration sound-category structure and then related category-learning outcomes to individual differences in memory skills. 17-month-olds’ mapping of nonverbal symbols to object categories.

Below, we provide specific details on the modeling procedures (additional details are available in several previous papers, e.g., Maddox and Ashby, 1993; Maddox, 1999; Maddox et al., 2016; Noh et al., 2016). In certain memory disorders like Alzheimer's disease, procedural memory is known to function better than the declarative memory. 1, 237–264. FIGURE 5. Long-term memory is divided into many subtypes of memory, and procedural memory is one of these. Praat: Doing Phonetics by Computer (Version 5.0. doi: 10.1017/S1366728913000783, Maddox, W. T., Chandrasekaran, B., Smayda, K., and Yi, H.-G. (2013). Sci. However, the fact that effects of declarative memory went away in Experiment 2 suggests that, when provided with enough time and support, participants shifted to greater use of implicit-learning strategies. Letter-recall accuracy was computed within each trial (i.e., a trial was correct only if all three letters were entered in the correct order). There have been several recent extensions of approaches from the visual category-learning literature (in particular, rule-based vs. information-integration category paradigms) to speech-sound-category learning (Wade and Holt, 2005; Goudbeek et al., 2009; Maddox et al., 2013; Maddox and Chandrasekaran, 2014; see also Moreton et al., 2015), but none have linked category learning to individual differences in memory skills. doi: 10.1044/1058-0360(2010/09-0096), Filoteo, J.

The experiment and all three memory assessments were programmed in the PsychoPy software program (version 1.79.00; Peirce, 2007) and administered on Mac Mini computers running Yosemite. Beaunieux, H., Hubert, V., Witkowski, T., Pitel, A. L., Rossi, S., Danion J. M., et al. Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. We also included participants with exposure to other languages as long as they were native speakers of English. Conversely, implicit, or so called procedural, memory refers to unconscious and unintentional memory, such as skilful performances, including learning to play a musical instrument or to ride a bicycle [1,2,3]. 37, 3557–3574. Procedural and declarative memory in children with and without specific language impairment. Across experiments, 27/70 participants (39%) scored at or below chance overall (50%). Psychol. First, twice the training was given over the course of two different sessions. Child Dev. We employed an auditory version of a reading-span test of working memory (Kane et al., 2004), designed to quantitatively measure working memory (Daneman and Carpenter, 1980) by engaging participants in two concurrent tasks: semantic plausibility judgments and letter recall. Res. Craig and Lewandowsky (2012) found that working-memory capacity predicted category-learning speed but not the particular strategy participants used. While learning through the declarative-memory system is primarily explicit, learning through the procedural-memory system is primarily implicit. We relate individual differences in these memory-skill domains to sound-category learning, one crucial aspect of L2 learning that exhibits wide individual variation for adult learners. This project focuses on two major factors that may account for variation in adult L2-learning outcomes: native-language (L1) biases and reliance on declarative vs. procedural memory systems. doi: 10.1002/hbm.23259, Craig, S., and Lewandowsky, S. (2012). These novel findings suggest that procedural memory may have a role to play in the development of some numeracy skills. Participants next completed the working-memory assessment, which took on average 16 min, and then completed the delayed recall portion of the declarative-memory assessment (the entire declarative-memory assessment took approximately 15 min). You don't have to consciously think or actively recall the information in your procedural memory. J. Exp. FIGURE 9. Disabil. 17, 336–343.
