Contributions of memory circuits to language: the declarative/procedural model
  • M. Ullman
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Cognition
  • 1 May 2004
The structure of the brain and the nature of evolution suggest that, despite its uniqueness, language likely depends on brain systems that also subserve other functions. The declarative/proceduralExpand

A neurocognitive perspective on language: The declarative/procedural model
  • M. Ullman
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Nature Reviews Neuroscience
  • 1 October 2001
What are the psychological, computational and neural underpinnings of language? Are these neurocognitive correlates dedicated to language? Do different parts of language depend on distinctExpand

The neural basis of lexicon and grammar in first and second language: the declarative/procedural model
Theoretical and empirical aspects of the neural bases of the mental lexicon and the mental grammar in first and second language (L1 and L2) are discussed. It is argued that in L1, the learning,Expand

A Neural Dissociation within Language: Evidence that the Mental Dictionary Is Part of Declarative Memory, and that Grammatical Rules Are Processed by the Procedural System
Language comprises a lexicon for storing words and a grammar for generating rule-governed forms. Evidence is presented that the lexicon is part of a temporal-parietalhnedial-temporal declarativeExpand

Specific Language Impairment is not Specific to Language: the Procedural Deficit Hypothesis
Specific Language Impairment (SLI) has been explained by two broad classes of hypotheses, which posit either a deficit specific to grammar, or a non-linguistic processing impairment. Here we advanceExpand

The Declarative/Procedural Model of Lexicon and Grammar
  • M. Ullman
  • Computer Science, Medicine
  • Journal of psycholinguistic research
  • 2001
Our use of language depends upon two capacities: a mental lexicon of memorized words and a mental grammar of rules that underlie the sequential and hierarchical composition of lexical forms intoExpand

The past and future of the past tense
What is the interaction between storage and computation in language processing? What is the psychological status of grammatical rules? What are the relative strengths of connectionist and symbolicExpand

Past tense morphology in specifically language impaired and normally developing children
This study evaluates the input-processing deficit/single system and the grammar-specific deficit/dual system models to account for past tense formation in impaired and normal language development. WeExpand

An Event-Related fMRI Study of Syntactic and Semantic Violations
We used event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging to identify brain regions involved in syntactic and semantic processing. Healthy adult males read well-formed sentences randomly intermixedExpand

Sleep has no critical role in implicit motor sequence learning in young and old adults
The influence of sleep on motor skill consolidation has been a research topic of increasing interest. In this study, we distinguished general skill learning from sequence-specific learning in aExpand
