Processing of action and sound verbs in context: An FMRI study

Margot Popp, Natalie M. Trumpp, Markus Kiefer
2019 Translational Neuroscience  
The present functional magnetic resonance imaging study investigated the influence of context and task on conceptual processing of action and sound verbs.  ...  Participants first performed an explicit semantic context decision task, in which action and sound verbs were presented together with a context noun.  ...  Instead, depending on task or context, a hierarchy of neural circuits involving modality-specific as well as adjacent multimodal higher-level cortices is assumed to be involved in the processing of conceptual  ...

Verbal and nominal agreement: An fMRI study

Manuel Carreiras, Ileana Quiñones, Simona Mancini, Juan Andrés Hernández-Cabrera, Horacio Barber
2015 NeuroImage  
In this fMRI study, we investigated the neuro-cognitive processes of agreement associated with number feature covariance in subject-verb agreement and determiner-noun concord in Spanish by creating mismatches  ...  These results suggest that general conflict-monitoring processes operate in parallel with language-specific mechanisms that are sensitive to the specificity of agreement type for the detection of feature  ...  The main goal of the current study is to investigate whether subject-verb and nominal agreement hinge on similar or different neural mechanisms in the processing of a common feature, i.e. number.  ...

Practiced naming of objects and actions: An fMRI study [article]

Ekaterina Delikishkina, Angelika Lingnau, Gabriele Miceli
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
We measured the fMRI signal during the production of nouns and verbs from pictures before and after two weeks of intensive naming training.  ...  However, the mechanisms supporting naming practice in the healthy brain have received little attention.  ...  In the present fMRI study we investigated differences in the magnitude and localization of training effects for nouns and verbs.  ...

Processing of Anomalous Sentences in Japanese : An fMRI Study

Yuko Sassa, Motoaki Sugiura, Yoshihiko Matsue, Yuko Akitsuki, Yasuhiro Maeda, Ryuta Kawashima, Jobu Watanabe
2007 Journal of Cognitive Science  
Most previous neuroimaging studies of anomalous sentence processing have used Indo-European languages to separately identify syntactic and semantic processing mechanisms.  ...  Thus, we expected that the activation pattiεm during processing of anomalous sentences in Japanese would be at least p따tially different from that in other languages reported in previous studies.  ...  These studiεs gen er떠ly reliεd on the assumption that the cortical network involved in syntactic or semantic processing would be more activated during the processing of linguistic materials with syntactic  ...

Functional topography of the cerebellum for motor and cognitive tasks: An fMRI study

Catherine J. Stoodley, Eve M. Valera, Jeremy D. Schmahmann
2012 NeuroImage  
The cerebellar functional topography identified in this study reflects the involvement of different cerebro-cerebellar circuits depending on the demands of the task being performed: overt movement activated  ...  Using functional MRI, we show that regions active during overt movement differ from those involved in higher-level language, spatial processing and working memory tasks.  ...  Acknowledgments This study was supported in part by The National Center for Research Resources (P41RR14075); the Massachusetts General Hospital Fund for Medical Discovery (CJS); the National Institutes  ...

An Event-related fMRI Study of Explicit Syntactic Processing of Normal/Anomalous Sentences in Contrast to Implicit Syntactic Processing

K. Suzuki
2003 Cerebral Cortex  
Using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we examined activation of cortical language areas for explicit syntactic processing.  ...  These results suggest that explicit information processing in the syntactic domain critically involves the left F3op/F3t, which is functionally separable from other regions.  ...  The present study indicates that explicit tasks are more effective for clarif ying the neural mechanism involved in syntactic processing than implicit tasks.  ...
