As part of the AMPIRIC project, the selection committee selected five new projects whose common objective is to co-produce and experiment with innovative educational resources to improve fundamental learning. Among the laureates is the HIBOU Lecture Adaptée project which is coordinated by several members of the LPC, the ISI company and Núria Gala of the LPL.
Marie Vernet, doctoral student at the LPL and at the Toulouse NeuroImaging Center (ToNIC), is the first author of an article published in the journal Applied Neuropsychology: Child entitled "Predicting future poor readers from pre-reading visual skills". She carried out the study in collaboration with Stéphanie Ducrot (LPL) and Yves Chaix (ToNIC) as well as Stéphanie Bellocchi (EPSYLON Montpellier) and Laurie Leibnitz (CMPP Fort-de-France), two former members of the LPL.

Phonological codes play a key role in learning to read. In this article, published in July in the journal Annals of Dyslexia, Ambre Denis-Noël (PhD) and Chotiga Pattamadilok (CNRS researcher) - in collaboration with two colleagues from the LPC Marseille - study the activation of these codes in typical readers and dyslexic readers, by tracing their eye movements when reading.

The corpus database of the Alector project is now available for consultation on the following website: https://corpusalector.huma-num.fr
It was created as part of the ANR Alector project https://alectorsite.wordpress.com/corpus/ and offers reading assistance mainly for children who are weak readers and have dyslexia.

Núria Gala (LPL) organized the Workshop 'Tools and Resources to Empower People with REAding DIfficulties' (READI, May 11th in Marseille) within the next Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC 2020).
This event is cancelled due to the current situation but the proceedings will be published in May.

The LPL is pleased to announce that the project "From lip- to script-reading: An integrative view of audio-visual associations in language processing" (AVA), submitted by Chotiga Pattamadilok, LPL researcher, was validated in the framework of the last ANR PRC selection.
The early exposure to speech and speakers’ articulatory gestures is the basis of language acquisition and is a fingerprint of audiovisual association learning. Is this initial ability to associate speech sounds and visual inputs a precursor of infants’ reading ability? Answering this question requires a good understanding of the cognitive/neural bases of both language abilities and whether they interact within the language system. Studies comparing task performance and spatio-temporal dynamics of brain activity associated with these abilities will be conducted. At the theoretical level, the outcome should lead to an elaboration of a unified framework explaining how multi-modal inputs jointly contribute to form a coherent language representation. At the practical level, the new perspective of a link between the developmental trajectories of “lip-reading” and “script-reading” should contribute to language learning and facilitate early detection and remediation of reading deficits.
