Towards a neural basis of auditory sentence processing
  • A. Friederici
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 1 February 2002
Functional dissociations within the neural basis of auditory sentence processing are difficult to specify because phonological, syntactic and semantic information are all involved when sentences areExpand

The brain basis of language processing: from structure to function.
  • A. Friederici
  • Medicine, Physics
  • Physiological reviews
  • 1 October 2011
Language processing is a trait of human species. The knowledge about its neurobiological basis has been increased considerably over the past decades. Different brain regions in the left and rightExpand

Investigating emotion with music: An fMRI study
The present study used pleasant and unpleasant music to evoke emotion and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine neural correlates of emotion processing. Unpleasant (permanentlyExpand

The role of left inferior frontal and superior temporal cortex in sentence comprehension: localizing syntactic and semantic processes.
An event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) paradigm was used to specify those brain areas supporting the processing of sentence-level semantic and syntactic information.Expand

Musical syntax is processed in Broca's area: an MEG study
The present experiment was designed to localize the neural substrates that process music-syntactic incongruities, using magnetoencephalography (MEG). Electrically, such processing has been proposedExpand

The Time Course of Syntactic Activation During Language Processing: A Model Based on Neuropsychological and Neurophysiological Data
  • A. Friederici
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Brain and Language
  • 1 September 1995
This paper presents a model describing the temporal and neurotopological structure of syntactic processes during comprehension. It postulates three distinct phases of language comprehension, two ofExpand

fMRI Evidence for Dual Routes to the Mental Lexicon in Visual Word Recognition
Event-related fMRI was used to investigate lexical decisions to words of high and low frequency of occurrence and to pseudowords. The results obtained strongly support dual-route models of visualExpand

The cortical language circuit: from auditory perception to sentence comprehension
  • A. Friederici
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 1 May 2012
Over the years, a large body of work on the brain basis of language comprehension has accumulated, paving the way for the formulation of a comprehensive model. The model proposed here describes theExpand

The brain differentiates human and non-human grammars: Functional localization and structural connectivity
The human language faculty has been claimed to be grounded in the ability to process hierarchically structured sequences. This human ability goes beyond the capacity to process sequences with simpleExpand

Brain Indices of Music Processing: Nonmusicians are Musical
Only little systematic research has examined event-related brain potentials (ERPs) elicited by the cognitive processing of music. The present study investigated how music processing is influenced byExpand
