Distributional learning of novel visual object categories in children with and without developmental language disorder

Posted on 26.10.2021 - 08:46 by I.R.L. Broedelet
We investigated whether children with developmental language disorder (DLD) have a deficit in visual distributional learning compared to typically developing (TD) children and whether this ability is related to different types of vocabulary knowlegde. For this end we adapted the visual distributional learning task of Junge et al. (2018) in which children could learn novel object categories based on distributional information. 50 children (25 DLD, 25 TD) participated in the experiment. In this repository, we provide the data, data-analysis files (Rmarkdown) and output for this project, as well as all the files needed to run the experiment.
