The extended argument dependency model: a neurocognitive approach to sentence comprehension across languages.
A neurocognitive model of online comprehension, the extended argument dependency model (eADM), that accounts for cross-linguistic unity and diversity in the processing of core constituents (verbs and arguments). Expand

Separating syntactic memory costs and syntactic integration costs during parsing: the processing of German WH-questions
Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded while participants processed case-unambiguous German subject and object WH-questions with either a long or a short distance between the WH-fillerExpand

Syntactic Working Memory and the Establishment of Filler-Gap Dependencies: Insights from ERPs and fMRI
In this contribution, we review an ERP experiment and an fMRI experiment which investigated the processing of German wh-questions. Expand

Revisiting the role of Broca's area in sentence processing: Syntactic integration versus syntactic working memory
Most previous neuroimaging studies of sentence processing have associated Broca's area with syntactic processing; however, the exact nature of the processes subserved by this brain region is yet notExpand

An alternative perspective on “semantic P600” effects in language comprehension
The literature on the electrophysiology of language comprehension has recently seen a very prominent discussion of "semantic P600" effects, which have been observed, for example, in sentences involving an implausible thematic role assignment to an argument that would be a highly plausible filler for a different thematic Role of the same verb.

Who did what to whom? The neural basis of argument hierarchies during language comprehension
The present fMRI study aimed at identifying neural correlates of the syntax-semantics interface in language comprehension. Expand

Multi-dimensional contributions to garden path strength: Dissociating phrase structure from case marking
Abstract Psycholinguistic investigations of reanalysis phenomena have typically focused on revisions of phrase structure. Here, we identify a further subcomponent of syntactic reanalysis, namely theExpand

Neurobiological roots of language in primate audition: common computational properties
Here, we present a new perspective on an old question: how does the neurobiology of human language relate to brain systems in nonhuman primates? We argue that higher-order language combinatorics,Expand

The N400 reflects problems of thematic hierarchizing
Using event-related potentials (ERPs), we present evidence that the current interpretation of the N400 component must be extended. This component is elicited in incorrect German sentences with twoExpand

Reconciling time, space and function: A new dorsal–ventral stream model of sentence comprehension
We present a new dorsal-ventral stream framework for language comprehension which unifies basic neurobiological assumptions (Rauschecker & Scott, 2009) with a cross-linguistic neurocognitive sentenceExpand
