Imagining the collective future: a sociocultural perspective

Zittoun, Tania ; Gillespie, Alex

In: Imagining collective futures : Perspectives from social, cultural and political psychology, 2018, p. 15-37

The present chapter examines how groups imagine their future from a sociocultural perspective. First, we present our sociocultural model of imagination and its three dimensions, before building on it to account for how collectives imagine the future. We maintain that it is a mistake to assume that because imagination is “not real”, it cannot have “real” consequences. Imagination about the...

Memory in life transitions

Zittoun, Tania

In: Handbook of memory and culture, 2018, p. 209-236

This chapter explores the transformation of autobiographical memory in life transitions. To do so, it proposes a model of autobiographical memory as an oriented sociocultural act, whereby the person imaginatively distances herself from past experiences to produce a meaningful discourse on her past. This model is applied to the development of autobiographical memory during adolescence, a crucial...

Working memory and semantic involvement in sentence processing: A case of pure progressive amnesia

Fossard, Marion ; Rigalleau, François ; Puel, Michèle ; Nespoulous, Jean-Luc ; Viallard, Gérard ; Démonet, Jean-François ; Cardebat, Dominique

In: Neuropsychologia, 2006, vol. 44, no. 3, p. 335-338

ED, a 83-year-old woman, meets the criteria of pure progressive amnesia, with gradual impairment of episodic and autobiographical memory, sparing of semantic processing and strong working memory (WM) deficit. The dissociation between disturbed WM and spared semantic processing permitted testing the role of WM in processing anaphors like pronouns or repeated names. Results showed a globally normal...

Indirect anaphora in English and French: A cross-linguistic study of pronoun resolution

Cornish, Francis ; Garnham, Alan ; Cowles, H. Wind ; Fossard, Marion ; Andrée, Virginie

In: Journal of Memory and Language, 2005, vol. 52, no. 3, p. 363-376

There is disagreement within both linguistics and psycholinguistics concerning the use of unaccented third person pronouns to refer to implicit referents. Some researchers (e.g., Erkü & Gundel, 1987) argue that it is impossible or highly marked, while others (e.g., Yule, 1982) maintain that it is not only acceptable but commonly used in normal discourse. However, both sides in the debate may be...

The role of Basal Ganglia in Language Production: evidence from Parkinson's disease

Macoir, Joël ; Fossard, Marion ; Mérette, Chantal ; Langlois, Mélanie ; Chantal, Sophie ; Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie

In: Journal of Parkinson's Disease, 2013, vol. 3, p. 393-397

According to the dominant view in the literature, basal ganglia do not play a direct role in language but are involved in cognitive control required by linguistic and non-linguistic processing. In Parkinson's disease, basal ganglia impairment leads to motor symptoms and language deficits; those affecting the production of verbs have been frequently explored. According to a controversial theory,...

Les troubles morphologiques flexionnels dans la maladie de Parkinson : origine procédurale et/ou exécutive ?

Macoir, Joël ; Fossard, Marion ; Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie

In: Revue Française de Linguistique Appliquée, 2012, vol. 17, no. 2, p. 101-115

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative neurological condition characterized by motor deficits but also by cognitive deficits affecting working memory, declarative memory and attentional capacities. With respect to language, the disease is also marked by the impairment of inflectional morphological processes. In this article, we present and discuss the respective supports to the procedural...
