Current research in cerebellar cognitive and linguistic functions makes plausible the idea that the cerebellum is involved in processing temporally contiguous linguistic input. In order to assess this hypothesis, a lexical decision task was constructed to study the effects of cerebellar transcranial magnetic stimulation on semantic noun-to-verb priming based on association (e.g. ‘soap–cleaning’) or similarity (e.g. ‘robbery–stealing’). The results demonstrated a selective increase in… CONTINUE READING
