日常のコミュニケーションにおいて,わたしたちは,言語のみならず身振りや視線,表情,姿勢など,複数のモダリティー(様式)を用いて情報のやり取りをしています。わたしの研究室では,こうしたマルチモーダルコミュニケーションの様相とその産出ー理解のメカニズムを研究しています。特に身振りと言語との関係に焦点を当て,それらの産出や理解の過程や発達的変化の解明に取り組んでいます。現在は,主に以下の3つのテーマの研究を行っています。

【発話と身振りの統合的理解】
子どもは,マルチモーダルな環境のなかで言語や社会性,コミュニケーション能力を発達させていきます。子どもの周囲にいる大人は,発話に表情や身振り,視線など視覚的な情報を付随させ,子どもと関わっています。そうした大人からの働きかけを,子どもはいつ頃から,どのように理解していくのでしょうか。こうした問いのもと,子どもにおける身振りと発話の統合的理解の処理過程と発達を,行動指標や生理的指標(脳波)を使い,実験的に明らかにしています。

【身振りと言語の発達経路に及ぼす文化的な影響】
子どもは周りの大人や他の子どもとの相互作用を通じて,コミュニケーションのスキルを発達させていきます。この過程において,子どもは表現の内容(何を伝えるか)だけでなく,表現の様式(どのように伝えるか)も学習していきます。そうしたスキルの学習過程は一様ではなく,その過程に影響を及ぼす周囲の働きかけや相互作用のあり方,表現様式の伝達的価値は,文化ごとに異なっていると考えられます。そこで,日本の子どもを対象に,コミュニケーションで使用される身体的動作(うなづき,否定,姿勢,身振りなど)が,どのように獲得・学習されているか,ということを様々な場面で観察しています。将来的には,観察結果を日本以外の文化圏とで比較し,日本独自のコミュニケーションの発達経路を明らかにしたいと考えています。

【失語症と身振りとの関係】
失語症者におけるコミュケーションのあり方と,様々なモダリティーを用いた言語治療・評価について研究してます。話す,聞くなど,音声言語機能の一部に困難をきたしているものの,コミュニケーションや認知能力は損なわれていない失語症者の方も多く,身振りは比較的容易に産出できる重要な情報伝達媒体となります。そこで,言語聴覚士の先生方と一緒に,失語症の症状と身振りパタンとの関係や,マルチモーダルな手がかりを使用した言語治療・評価の開発に取り組んでいます。

上記のテーマのほかに,応用的研究として,スポーツや音楽活動における身体動作の役割に関する研究も行っています。

  • Lending a hand to storytelling: Gesture's effects on narrative comprehension moderated by task difficulty and cognitive ability.

    Quarterly journal of experimental psychology    2021.06  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    Compelling evidence suggests observing iconic gestures benefits learning. While emerging evidence suggests typical iconic gestures benefit comprehension to a greater extent than atypical iconic gestures, it is unclear precisely when and for whom these gestures will be most helpful. The current study investigated factors that may moderate when and for whom gesture benefits narrative comprehension most, including the type of gesture, task difficulty, and individual differences in cognitive ability. Participants were shown a video narrative in which they observed either typical gestures (commonly produced gestures, highly semantically related to accompanying speech), atypical gestures (gestures that are seldom produced), or no gestures. The video narrative was either viewed with interference (background noise to increase task difficulty) or no interference (no background noise). To determine whether the effects of gesture observation and externally imposed task difficulty on narrative comprehension further depend on an individual's cognitive abilities, participants completed four measures of cognitive abilities (immediate and delayed non-verbal memory, attention, and intellectual ability). Observing typical gestures significantly benefitted narrative comprehension compared with atypical and no gestures combined, which did not differ significantly. Participants with below average and average levels of delayed non-verbal memory benefitted more from typical gestures than atypical or no gestures compared with those with an above average level of delayed non-verbal memory. However, this interaction was only significant when the task was difficult (i.e., with interference) but not when the task was simple (i.e., no interference). This finding suggests that the type of iconic gesture observed may affect gesture's beneficial effect on narrative comprehension, and that such gestures may be more beneficial in difficult tasks, but only for certain individuals.

    Authorship:Last author

     View Summary

    An emerging perspective on human cognition and performance sees it as a kind of self-organizing phenomenon involving dynamic coordination across the body, brain and environment. Measuring this coordination faces a major challenge. Time series obtained from such cognitive, behavioral, and physiological coordination are often complicated in terms of non-stationarity and non-linearity, and in terms of continuous vs. categorical scales. Researchers have proposed several analytical tools and frameworks. One method designed to overcome these complexities is recurrence quantification analysis, developed in the study of non-linear dynamics. It has been applied in various domains, including linguistic (categorical) data or motion (continuous) data. However, most previous studies have applied recurrence methods individually to categorical or continuous data. To understand how complex coordination works, an integration of these types of behavior is needed. We aimed to integrate these methods to investigate the relationship between language (categorical) and motion (continuous) directly. To do so, we added temporal information (a time stamp) to categorical data (i.e., language), and applied joint recurrence analysis methods to visualize and quantify speech-motion coordination coupling during a rap performance. We illustrate how new dynamic methods may capture this coordination in a small case-study design on this expert rap performance. We describe a case study suggesting this kind of dynamic analysis holds promise, and end by discussing the theoretical implications of studying complex performances of this kind as a dynamic, coordinated phenomenon.

  • Evidence for children's online integration of simultaneous information from speech and iconic gestures: an ERP study

    LANGUAGE COGNITION AND NEUROSCIENCE   35 ( 10 ) 1283 - 1294  2020.12  [Refereed]  [International journal]

    Authorship:Lead author

     View Summary

    Children perceive iconic gestures, along with speech they hear. Previous studies have shown that children integrate information from both modalities. Yet it is not known whether children can integrate both types of information simultaneously as soon as they are available (as adults do) or whether they initially process them separately and integrate them later. Using electrophysiological measures, we examined the online neurocognitive processing of gesture-speech integration in 6- to 7-year-old children. We focused on the N400 event-related potential component which is modulated by semantic integration load. Children watched video clips of matching or mismatching gesture-speech combinations, which varied the semantic integration load. The ERPs showed that the amplitude of the N400 was larger in the mismatching condition than in the matching condition. This finding provides the first neural evidence that by the ages of 6 or 7, children integrate multimodal semantic information in an online fashion comparable to that of adults.

  • Comparing signers and speakers: building a directly comparable corpus of Auslan and Australian English

    Gabrielle Hodge, Kazuki Sekine, Adam Schembri, Trevor Johnston

    CORPORA   14 ( 1 ) 63 - 76  2019.04  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    The Auslan and Australian English archive and corpus is the first bilingual, multi-modal documentation of a deaf signed language (Auslan, the language of the Australian deaf community) and its ambient spoken language (Australian English). It aims to facilitate the direct comparison of face-to-face, multi-modal talk produced by deaf signers and hearing speakers from the same city. Here, we describe the documentation of the bilingual, multi-modal archive and outline its development pathway into a directly comparable corpus of a signed language and spoken language. We differentiate it from existing bilingual corpora and offer some research questions which the resulting corpus may be best placed to answer. The Auslan and Australian English corpus has the potential to redress several significant misunderstandings in the comparison of signed and spoken languages, especially those that follow from misapplications of the paradigm that multi-modal signed languages are used and structured in ways that are parallel to the uni-modal spoken or written conventions of spoken languages.

  • The listener automatically uses spatial story representations from the speaker's cohesive gestures when processing subsequent sentences without gestures

    Kazuki Sekine, Sotaro Kita

    ACTA PSYCHOLOGICA   179   89 - 95  2017.09  [Refereed]  [International journal]

    Authorship:Lead author

     View Summary

    This study examined spatial story representations created by speaker's cohesive gestures. Participants were presented with three-sentence discourse with two protagonists. In the first and second sentences, gestures consistently located the two protagonists in the gesture space: one to the right and the other to the left. The third sentence (without gestures) referred to one of the protagonists, and the participants responded with one of the two keys to indicate the relevant protagonist. The response keys were either spatially congruent or incongruent with the gesturally established locations for the two participants. Though the cohesive gestures did not provide any clue for the correct response, they influenced performance: the reaction time in the congruent condition was faster than that in the incongruent condition. Thus, cohesive gestures automatically establish spatial story representations and the spatial story representations remain activated in a subsequent sentence without any gesture.

  • Communicative effectiveness of pantomime gesture in people with aphasia

    Miranda L. Rose, Zaneta Mok, Kazuki Sekine

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LANGUAGE & COMMUNICATION DISORDERS   52 ( 2 ) 227 - 237  2017.03  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background: Human communication occurs through both verbal and visual/motoric modalities. Simultaneous conversational speech and gesture occurs across all cultures and age groups. When verbal communication is compromised, more of the communicative load can be transferred to the gesture modality. Although people with aphasia produce meaning-laden gestures, the communicative value of these has not been adequately investigated.Aims: To investigate the communicative effectiveness of pantomime gesture produced spontaneously by individuals with aphasia during conversational discourse.Methods & Procedures: Sixty-seven undergraduate students wrote down the messages conveyed by 11 people with aphasia that produced pantomime while engaged in conversational discourse. Students were presented with a speech-only, a gesture-only and a combined speech and gesture condition and guessed messages in both a free description and a multiple-choice task.Outcomes & Results: As hypothesized, listener comprehension was more accurate in the combined pantomime gesture and speech condition as compared with the gesture-or speech-only conditions. Participants achieved greater accuracy in the multiple-choice task as compared with the free-description task, but only in the gestureonly condition. The communicative effectiveness of the pantomime gestures increased as the fluency of the participants with aphasia decreased.Conclusions & Implications: These results indicate that when pantomime gesture was presented with aphasic speech, the combination had strong communicative effectiveness. Future studies could investigate how pantomimes can be integrated into interventions for people with aphasia, particularly emphasizing elicitation of pantomimes in as natural a context as possible and highlighting the opportunity for efficient message repair.

  • Part of the message comes in gesture: how people with aphasia convey information in different gesture types as compared with information in their speech

    Karin van Nispen, Mieke van de Sandt-Koenderman, Kazuki Sekine, Emiel Krahmer, Miranda L. Rose

    APHASIOLOGY   31 ( 9 ) 1078 - 1103  2017  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    Background: Studies have shown that the gestures produced by people with aphasia (PWA) can convey information useful for their communication. However, the exact significance of the contribution to message communication via gesture remains unclear. Furthermore, it remains unclear how different gesture types and representation techniques impact message conveyance.Aims: The present study aimed to investigate the contribution of gesture to PWA's communication. We specifically focussed on the degree to which different gesture types and representation techniques convey information absent in the speech of PWA.Methods & Procedure: We studied the gestures produced by 46 PWA and nine non-brain-damaged participants (NBDP) during semi-structured conversation. For each of the different types of gestures and representation techniques we identified whether these conveyed essential information, that is information that was absent in speech. Rather than looking at information that was either similar to information in speech or additional to information in speech, we focused on the essential gestures only.Outcomes & Results: For PWA, a fifth of their gestures were Essential. Despite individual differences between PWA, the majority produced more Essential gestures than NBDP, who produced limited amounts of Essential gestures. Essential information was mostly conveyed by specific gesture types: Pointing, Emblems and Iconic gesture. Within the group of iconic gestures, not only Handling and Enact but also Object and Shape gestures, were often Essential.Conclusions: Our findings suggest that a great proportion of gestures produced by most PWA convey information essential for understanding their communication. In their communication advice, speech language therapists could draw attention to specific gesture types to make sure that interlocutors pay more attention to these gestures when communicating with PWA.

  • Development of multimodal discourse comprehension: cohesive use of space by gestures

    Kazuki Sekine, Sotaro Kita

    LANGUAGE COGNITION AND NEUROSCIENCE   30 ( 10 ) 1245 - 1258  2015.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This study examined how well 5-, 6-, 10-year-olds and adults integrated information from spoken discourse with cohesive use of space in gesture, in comprehension. In Experiment 1, participants were presented with a combination of spoken discourse and a sequence of cohesive gestures, which consistently located each of the two protagonists in two distinct locations in gesture space. Participants were asked to select an interpretation of the final sentence that best matched the preceding spoken and gestural contexts. Adults and 10-year-olds performed better than 5-year-olds, who were at chance level. In Experiment 2, another group of 5-year-olds was presented with the same stimuli as in Experiment 1, except that the actor showed hand-held pictures, instead of producing cohesive gestures. Unlike cohesive gestures, one set of pictures was self-explanatory and did not require integration with the concurrent speech to derive the referent. With these pictures, 5-year-olds performed nearly perfectly and their performance in the identifiable pictures was significantly better than those in the unidentifiable pictures. These results suggest that young children failed to integrate spoken discourse and cohesive use of space in gestures, because they cannot derive a referent of cohesive gestures from the local speech context.

  • Cross-linguistic Views of Gesture Usage

    Kazuki Sekine, Gale Stam, Keiko Yoshioka, Marion Tellier, Olga Capirci

    VIAL-VIGO INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF APPLIED LINGUISTICS   12   91 - 105  2015  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    People have stereotypes about gesture usage. For instance, speakers in East Asia are not supposed to gesticulate, and it is believed that Italians gesticulate more than the British. Despite the prevalence of such views, studies that investigate these stereotypes are scarce. The present study examined people's views on spontaneous gestures by collecting data from five different countries. A total of 363 undergraduate students from five countries (France, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and USA) participated in this study. Data were collected through a two-part questionnaire. Part 1 asked participants to rate two characteristics of gesture: frequency and size of gesture for 13 different languages. Part 2 asked them about their views on factors that might affect the production of gestures. The results showed that most participants in this study believe that Italian, Spanish, and American English speakers produce larger gestures more frequently than other language speakers. They also showed that each culture group, even within Europe, put weight on a slightly different aspect of gestures.

  • The parallel development of the form and meaning of two-handed gestures and linguistic information packaging within a clause in narrative

    Kazuki Sekine, Sotaro Kita

    OPEN LINGUISTICS   1 ( 1 ) 490 - 502  2015.01  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    We examined how two-handed gestures and speech with equivalent contents that are used in narrative develop during childhood. The participants were 40 native speakers of English consisting of four different age groups: 3-, 5-, 9-year-olds, and adults. A set of 10 video clips depicting motion events were used to elicit speech and gesture. There are two findings. First, two types of two-handed gestures showed different developmental changes: those with a single-handed stroke with a simultaneous hold increased with age, while those with a two handed-stroke decreased with age. Second, representational gesture and speech developed in parallel at the discourse level. More specifically, the ways in which information is packaged in a gesture and in a clause are similar for a given age group; that is, gesture and speech develop hand-in-hand.

  • The Development of the Ability to Semantically Integrate Information in Speech and Iconic Gesture in Comprehension.

    Kazuki Sekine, Hannah Sowden, Sotaro Kita

    Cogn. Sci.   39 ( 8 ) 1855 - 1880  2015  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    We examined whether children's ability to integrate speech and gesture follows the pattern of a broader developmental shift between 3- and 5-year-old children (Ramscar & Gitcho, 2007) regarding the ability to process two pieces of information simultaneously. In Experiment 1, 3-year-olds, 5-year-olds, and adults were presented with either an iconic gesture or a spoken sentence or a combination of the two on a computer screen, and they were instructed to select a photograph that best matched the message. The 3-year-olds did not integrate information in speech and gesture, but 5-year-olds and adults did. In Experiment 2, 3-year-old children were presented with the same speech and gesture as in Experiment 1 that were produced live by an experimenter. When presented live, 3-year-olds could integrate speech and gesture. We concluded that development of the integration ability is a part of the broader developmental shift; however, live-presentation facilitates the nascent integration ability in 3-year-olds.

  • The Relationship of Aphasia Type and Gesture Production in People With Aphasia

    Kazuki Sekine, Miranda L. Rose

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY   22 ( 4 ) 662 - 672  2013.11  [Refereed]  [International journal]

    Authorship:Lead author

     View Summary

    Purpose: For many individuals with aphasia, gestures form a vital component of message transfer and are the target of speech-language pathology intervention. What remains unclear are the participant variables that predict successful outcomes from gesture treatments. The authors examined the gesture production of a large number of individuals with aphasia-in a consistent discourse sampling condition and with a detailed gesture coding system-to determine patterns of gesture production associated with specific types of aphasia.Method: The authors analyzed story retell samples from AphasiaBank (TalkBank, n.d.), gathered from 98 individuals with aphasia resulting from stroke and 64 typical controls. Twelve gesture types were coded. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the patterns of gesture production. Possible significant differences in production patterns according to aphasia type were examined using a series of chi-square, Fisher exact, and logistic regression statistics.Results: A significantly higher proportion of individuals with aphasia gestured as compared to typical controls, and for many individuals with aphasia, this gesture was iconic and was capable of communicative load. Aphasia type impacted significantly on gesture type in specific identified patterns, detailed here.Conclusion: These type-specific patterns suggest the opportunity for gestures as targets of aphasia therapy.

    APHASIOLOGY   27 ( 9 ) 1031 - 1049  2013.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Background: Gesture frequently accompanies speech in healthy speakers. For many individuals with aphasia, gestures are a target of speech-language pathology intervention, either as an alternative form of communication or as a facilitative device for language restoration. The patterns of gesture production for people with aphasia and the participant variables that predict these patterns remain unclear.Aims: We aimed to examine gesture production during conversational discourse in a large sample of individuals with aphasia. We used a detailed gesture coding system to determine patterns of gesture production associated with specific aphasia types and severities.Methods & Procedures: We analysed conversation samples from AphasiaBank, gathered from 46 people with post-stroke aphasia and 10 healthy matched controls all of whom had gestured at least once during a story re-tell task. Twelve gesture types were coded. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the patterns of gesture production. Possible significant differences in production patterns according to aphasia type and severity were examined with a series of analyses of variance (ANOVA) statistics, and multiple regression analysis was used to examine these potential predictors of gesture production patterns.Outcomes & Results: Individuals with aphasia gestured significantly more frequently than healthy controls. Aphasia type and severity impacted significantly on gesture type in specific identified patterns detailed here, especially on the production of meaning-laden gestures.Conclusions: These patterns suggest the opportunity for gestures as targets of aphasia therapy. Aphasia fluency accounted for a greater degree of data variability than aphasia severity or naming skills. More work is required to delineate predictive factors.

    JOURNAL OF NONVERBAL BEHAVIOR   36 ( 2 ) 149 - 164  2012.06  [Refereed]  [International journal]

     View Summary

    This study compares words and gestures produced in a controlled experimental setting by children raised in different linguistic/cultural environments to examine the robustness of gesture use at an early stage of lexical development. Twenty-two Italian and twenty-two Japanese toddlers (age range 25-37 months) performed the same picture-naming task. Italians produced more spoken correct labels than Japanese but a similar amount of representational gestures temporally matched with words. However, Japanese gestures reproduced more closely the action represented in the picture. Results confirm that gestures are linked to motor actions similarly for all children, suggesting a common developmental stage, only minimally influenced by culture.

  • The role of gesture in the language production of preschool children

    GESTURE   11 ( 2 ) 148 - 173  2011  [Refereed]  [International journal]

    Authorship:Lead author

     View Summary

    The present study investigates the functions of gestures in preschoolers' descriptions of activities. Specifically, utilizing McNeill's growth point theory (1992), I examine how gestures contribute to the creation of contrast from the immediate context in the spoken discourse of children. When preschool children describe an activity consisting of multiple actions, like playing on a slide, they often begin with the central action (e.g., sliding-down) instead of with the beginning of the activity sequence (e.g., climbing-up). This study indicates that, in descriptions of activities, gestures may be among the cues the speaker uses for forming a next idea or for repairing the temporal order of the activities described. Gestures may function for the speaker as visual feedback and contribute to the process of utterance formation and provide an index for assessing language development.

     View Summary

    The present study investigated the function of gestures in the descriptions of events by preschoolers. Specifically,utilizing McNeill's "Growth Point" theory (2005), I examined how these children's gestures contributed to the creationof contrasts in their spoken discourse. When preschool children describe an event consisting of multiple activities(like playing on a slide), they often make unintended erroneous expressions. Frequently, they begin with the centralactivity of a sequence of events instead of describing it in chronological order. This study indicates that indescriptions of events, gestures provide the speaker cue(s) for forming their next idea or serve as a resource for speechrepair. The results suggest that gestures have at least two functions: 1) a visual-feedback function and 2) a contextcreation function, both of which have been largely overlooked so far. These gestural functions are considered tocontribute to the process of utterance formation and can provide an index for assessing the ontogenetic development oflanguage construction.

     View Summary

    This study longitudinally investigated developmental changes in the frame of reference used by children in their gestures and speech. Fifteen children, between 4 and 6 years of age, were asked once a year to describe their route home from their nursery school. When the children were 4 years old, they tended to produce gestures that directly and continuously indicated their actual route in a large gesture space. In contrast, as 6-year-olds, their gestures were segmented and did not match the actual route. Instead, at age 6, the children seemed to create a virtual space in front of themselves to symbolically describe their route. These results indicate that the use of frames of reference develops across the preschool years, shifting from an actual environmental to an abstract environmental frame of reference. Factors underlying the development of frame of reference, including verbal encoding skills and experience, are discussed.

    SEKINE KAZUKI

    The Japanese Journal of Educational Psychology   56 ( 3 ) 440 - 453  2008  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Previous studies of the development of gestures have examined gestures in infants. In recent years, together with the rise of interest in spontaneous gestures accompanied by speech, research on spontaneous gestures in preschool-age children has increased. But little has been reported in terms of systematic developmental changes in children's spontaneous gestures, especially with respect to preschool-age children. The present paper surveys domestic and international research on the development of spontaneous gestures in preschoolers. When gestures seen in infants and preschool-age and older children were categorized, it was found that spontaneous gestures begin to appear together with speech semantically and temporarily by the end of the one-word period; during this same period, gestures that were seen earlier gradually decrease. It is suggested that the development of spontaneous gestures relates to a sentence level, not to a vocabulary level. Based on growth point theory (McNeill, 1992), it is also argued that spontaneous gestures develop with “thinking for speaking” and symbol ability.

     View Summary

    Applying big data collection and analysis system for measuring human body movement rhythms and face-to-face behaviors, we aimed two goals. One was development and establishment of measurement technique for participants' attitudes for classroom lessons, and the other was designing quick feedback system between the researchers and the teachers in order to improve the lesson practices. Analysis using body movement rhythms showed certain usefulness as an index to detect the difference between children's grade levels. Based on these results, we examined relationships between nonverbal behaviors of children and degree of understanding of academic contents or degree of attention to speakers. Furthermore, in the reviewing session about some aspects on the classroom communication captured by the system, it was confirmed that a new awareness for the children were emerged in the teacher.

    本研究の目的は,身振りは幼児期から発話生成に影響を及ぼしているのか,また,身振りの使用が言語発達と共にどのように変化するのか,ということを実証的に検討することである。この目的を遂行するため,最終年度では,以下の4点の研究活動を行った
    1.平成21年度に行った研究1「談話構築における身振りの使用とその変化」と平成22年度に行った研究2「児童期における空間利用の変化」の結果から,児童期における身振りと空間利用の発達段階を提案した。また,自然状況下での談話場面のデータを収集・分析した。その結果,実験的場面から得られたデータを支持するものとなった。
    2.本研究の理論的貢献となる"身振りと発話の変化に関する説明理論"と,"発達段階ごとの身振りの産出モデル"を構築した。
    3教育心理学会や,データ収集を行った小学校で研究成果を報告し,現場の教師からフォードベックをいただいた。それをもとに,実践的貢献となる研究結果の教育場面への応用を提案した。身振りの空間利用の仕方が談話発達の予測することから,身振りが指標となるという提案である。
    4.最後に,本研究の問題点や限界点を総括し,今後の課題や研究の方向性を検討した。
    以上の研究活動から,児童期後半から,談話知識とともに人物参照のための身振りが出現することが明らかになった。この現象は,教室場面や自然会話場面など,幅広い文脈でみられるものであった。これらの知見は,談話構築がマルチモーダルに達成されていることを明らかにするデータであり,これまで言語を中心に分析してきた談話研究に対して,新たな理論的・実践的観点を提供するものである。

Specific Research

  • フリースタイルラップにおけるストレス耐性についての調査

    2021  

     View Summary

    本研究では,フリースタイルラップに注目し,プロとアマチュアラッパーのストレス耐性の相違を検討した。本調査には2名のプロラッパー(ラップ経験15年以上)と2名のアマチュアラッパーが参加した。プロ同士,アマチュア同士,プロとアマという組み合わせを作り,二人一組でラップバトルを行った。ストレス評価として,唾液中のコルチゾールをCube Reader法によって計測した。唾液の採取はラップバトル前,バトル直後,バトル終了から10分後の3時点で行った。結果として,バトル後のプロのコルチゾールレベル (nM/L) はアマチュアよりも低かった。このことから,プロラッパーはアマチュアラッパーと比べて,ストレス耐性が高いことが明らかになった。

  • 音楽活動における身体活動が音響特性に与える影響

    2020  

     View Summary

     本研究ではプロとアマチュアラッパーの言語能力の相違を検討した。本調査には,1名のプロのラッパー(ラップ経験20年)と5名のアマチュアラッパー(ラップ経験平均5年)が参加した。参加者は文字流暢性課題,カテゴリー流暢性課題,脚韻課題,文構成課題,聴覚言語記憶課題(有意味語,無意味語),作業記憶課題に取り組んだ。結果として,文字流暢性課題,脚韻課題,文構成課題,聴覚言語記憶課題の無意味語においてプロの成績がアマチュアラッパーよりも有意に高かった。以上のことより,プロラッパーはアマチュアよりも言語能力が全体的に高く,特に意味的側面よりも音韻的側面においてその能力が顕著に高いことが明らかにされた。
