Call for papers
Studies on units of sound (phonological) production have made great progress in various European languages. Along with these syllable languages, attention is being turned to research on Japanese, a mora language, and Chinese, a syllable language.
In this special issue of Japanese Psychological Research, we invite original research contributions on phonological processing. For more information, please refer to the call for papers announcement.
Cognitive science has focused on various psychological domains such as perception, memory, language, thinking, problem-solving, particularly attention, imagery, working memory, executive function, and other topics. Few cognitive scientists have begun to study impairments in these functions, although considerable efforts have been made to clarify the mechanisms of disorders, such as autism. This special issue presents five original papers and three review papers with a cognitive science or neuroscience approach to developmental dyslexia (DD), attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
