On Broca, brain, and binding: a new framework

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 1 September 2005
TLDR
A new framework that connects psycholinguistic models to a neurobiological account of language is proposed and it is suggested that the left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG) plays an important role in unification. Expand
Anticipating upcoming words in discourse: evidence from ERPs and reading times.
TLDR
Findings suggest that people can indeed predict upcoming words in fluent discourse and, moreover, that these predicted words can immediately begin to participate in incremental parsing operations. Expand
The syntactic positive shift (sps) as an erp measure of syntactic processing
TLDR
The pattern of responses to the different kinds of syntactic violations suggests that the SPS indicates the impossibility for the parser to assign the preferred structure to an incoming string of words, irrespective of the specific syntactic nature of this preferred structure. Expand
Interplay between Syntax and Semantics during Sentence Comprehension: ERP Effects of Combining Syntactic and Semantic Violations
  • P. Hagoort
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience
  • 1 August 2003
TLDR
An asymmetry in the interplay between syntax and semantics during on-line sentence comprehension is revealed, suggesting that semantic integration is influenced by syntactic processing. Expand
Integration of Word Meaning and World Knowledge in Language Comprehension
TLDR
Electroencephalogram data are presented that show the rapid parallel integration of both semantic and world knowledge during the interpretation of a sentence and indicate that the brain keeps a record of what makes a sentence hard to interpret. Expand
The Neural Integration of Speaker and Message
TLDR
According to event-related potential results, language comprehension takes very rapid account of the social context, and the construction of meaning based on language alone cannot be separated from the social aspects of language use. Expand
Frontal theta EEG activity correlates negatively with the default mode network in resting state.
TLDR
It is concluded that frontal theta activity can be seen as an EEG index of default mode network activity. Expand
Semantic Integration in Sentences and Discourse: Evidence from the N400
TLDR
It is argued that the findings of ERP experiments investigating how and when the language comprehension system relates an incoming word to semantic representations of an unfolding local sentence and a wider discourse are most compatible with models of language processing in which there is no fundamental distinction between the integration of a word in its local and its global semantic context.

The Processing Nature of the N400: Evidence from Masked Priming
TLDR
This paper compared the effect of masked and unmasked presentations of a prime on the N400 to a following target, and indicated that the N 400 is not a manifestation of lexical access processes, but reflects aspects of semantic integration processes. Expand
When language meets action: the neural integration of gesture and speech.
TLDR
Findings provide direct evidence that action and language processing share a high-level neural integration system. Expand
