How the brain processes complex words: an event-related potential study of German verb inflections.
Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded as German-speaking subjects read verbs in correct and incorrect participle forms. The critical words were presented in three different versions toExpand
Brain potentials indicate differences between regular and irregular German plurals
EVENT-RELATED brain potentials were recorded as 18 German-speaking subjects read sentences that contained as critical words German nouns in correct and incorrect plural forms. Two types of pluralsExpand
Successful Verbal Encoding into Episodic Memory Engages the Posterior Hippocampus: A Parametrically Analyzed Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
The medial temporal lobe (MTL) is essential for episodic memory encoding, as evidenced by memory deficits in patients with MTL damage. However, previous functional neuroimaging studies have eitherExpand
ERPs to encoding and recognition in two different inter‐item association tasks
EVENT-RELATED potentials were obtained during study and recognition of word pairs in an incidental learning paradigm. Word pairs were studied either by performing a semantic judgment separately forExpand
Differences in brain potentials to open and closed class words: class and frequency effects
Closed class (determiners, pronouns, conjunctions, prepositions etc. ) and open class (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs) words have different linguistic functions and have been proposed to beExpand
Speeded production of inflected words in children and adults
This study examines the production of regular and irregular participle forms of German with high and low frequencies using a speeded production task. 40 children in two age groups (five- toExpand
Event-related potentials of verbal encoding into episodic memory: dissociation between the effects of subsequent memory performance and distinctiveness.
Episodic memory encoding and distinctiveness detection were examined using event-related potentials (ERP) in a single-trial word list learning paradigm with free recall following distraction. ToExpand
Mental representations of morphologically complex words: an event-related potential study with adult humans
Event related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 13 subjects while performing a lexical decision task. Regular and irregular German principles were presented twice (identical repetition) orExpand
Word Order in Sentence Processing: An Experimental Study of Verb Placement in German
We examine the question of whether the human comprehension device exhibits word-order preferences during on-line sentence comprehension. Expand
