Differential activity was found for emotional, compared to neutral, pictures at both of the P3 intervals, as well as enhancement of later posterior positivity.

Sound-related somatotopic activation in precentral gyrus shows that, during speech perception, specific motor circuits are recruited that reflect phonetic distinctive features of the speech sounds encountered, thus providing direct neuroimaging support for specific links between the phonological mechanisms for speech perception and production.

The results show that the left hemispheric cortical systems for language and action are linked to each other in a category‐specific manner and that activation in motor and premotor areas can influence the processing of specific kinds of words semantically related to arm or leg actions.

Grasping Ideas with the Motor System: Semantic Somatotopy in Idiom Comprehension
Functional magnetic resonance imaging activation to idioms and literal sentences including arm- and leg-related action words indicates that semantic representations grounded in the sensory–motor system play a role in the composition of sentence-level meaning, even in the case of idioms.
Neurophysiological distinction of action words in the fronto‐central cortex
The findings are interpreted in the framework of a neurobiological model of language and the possible role of mirror neurons in the premotor cortex in language processing is discussed.
