On Broca, brain, and binding: a new framework
  • P. Hagoort

  • 1 September 2005
In speaking and comprehending language, word information is retrieved from memory and combined into larger units (unification). Unification operations take place in parallel at the semantic,Expand

Anticipating upcoming words in discourse: evidence from ERPs and reading times.
The authors examined whether people can use their knowledge of the wider discourse rapidly enough to anticipate specific upcoming words as a sentence is unfolding. In an event-related brain potentialExpand

  • Medicine, Computer Science
  • Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience
  • 1 August 2003
This study investigated the effects of combined semantic and syntactic violations in relation to the effects of single semantic and single syntactic violations on language-related event-related brainExpand

Integration of Word Meaning and World Knowledge in Language Comprehension
Although the sentences that we hear or read have meaning, this does not necessarily mean that they are also true. Relatively little is known about the critical brain structures for, and the relativeExpand

The Neural Integration of Speaker and Message
When do listeners take into account who the speaker is? We asked people to listen to utterances whose content sometimes did not match inferences based on the identity of the speaker (e.g., If only IExpand

Frontal theta EEG activity correlates negatively with the default mode network in resting state.
We used simultaneously recorded EEG and fMRI to investigate in which areas the BOLD signal correlates with frontal theta power changes, while subjects were quietly lying resting in the scanner withExpand

A neurobiological model of language is discussed that overcomes the shortcomings of the classical Wernicke-Lichtheim-Geschwind model. It is based on a subdivision of language processing into threeExpand

The Processing Nature of the N400: Evidence from Masked Priming
The N400 is an endogenous event-related brain potential (ERP) that is sensitive to semantic processes during language comprehension. The general question we address in this paper is which aspects ofExpand

  • 1 November 2003
Syntax is one of the components in the architecture of language processing that allows the listener/reader to bind single-word information into a unified interpretation of multiword utterances. ThisExpand

ERP effects of listening to speech: semantic ERP effects
In this study, event-related brain potential effects of speech processing are obtained and compared to similar effects in sentence reading. In two experiments spoken sentences were presented withExpand
