Dissociating linguistic and nonlinguistic gestural communication in the brain

Mairéad MacSweeney, Ruth Campbell, Bencie Woll, Vincent Giampietro, Anthony S David, Philip K McGuire, Gemma A Calvert, Michael J Brammer
2004 NeuroImage  
Gestures of the face, arms, and hands are components of signed languages used by Deaf people. Signaling codes, such as the racecourse betting code known as Tic Tac, are also made up of such gestures.  ...  Greater activation for BSL than Tic Tac was observed in signers, but not in nonsigners, in the left posterior superior temporal sulcus and gyrus, extending into the supramarginal gyrus.  ...  We thank Judith Jackson and Trudi Collier for their help with this study and all the Deaf and hearing participants.  ...

Sign, language, and gesture in the brain: Some comments

Ruth Campbell, Bencie Woll
2017 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
In contrast with two widely held and contradictory views – that sign languages of deaf people are "just gestures," or that sign languages are "just like spoken languages" – the view from sign linguistics  ...  We propose that neuroscience research suggests that a similar approach needs to be taken and offer some examples from research on the brain bases of sign language perception.  ...  In one brain imaging study, for example, deaf native signers were shown signed utterances and brachial gestures (specifically, the traditional tic-tac signalling system used by bookies to communicate odds  ...

Pragmatic ability and disability as emergent phenomena

Michael R. Perkins
2005 Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics  
A holistic approach to pragmatic ability and disability is outlined which takes account both of the behaviour of individuals involved in the communicative process, and also of the underlying factors which  ...  viewed as the emergent consequence of interactions between linguistic, cognitive and sensorimotor processes which take place both within and between individuals.  ...  Thus we might define pragmatics generally as '(the study of) the use of linguistic and nonlinguistic capacities for the purpose of communication'.  ...

Symbolic gestures and spoken language are processed by a common neural system

J. Xu, P. J. Gannon, K. Emmorey, J. F. Smith, A. R. Braun
2009 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
We used functional MRI to investigate whether these two forms of communication are processed by the same system in the human brain.  ...  Responses to symbolic gestures, to their spoken glosses (expressing the gestures' meaning in English), and to visually and acoustically matched control stimuli were compared in a randomized block design  ...  The authors thank Drs. Susan Goldin-Meadow and Jeffrey Solomon for their important contributions. This research was supported by the Intramural program of the NIDCD.  ...

On the Nature of Left Hemisphere Specialization for Signed Language

David P. Corina

Multidisciplinary approaches in evolutionary linguistics

Tao Gong, Lan Shuai, Yicheng Wu
2013 Language Sciences  
In this revival field, approaches from a number of disciplines other than linguistics, including (paleo)anthropology and archaeology, animal behaviors, genetics, neuroscience, computer simulation, and  ...  psychological experimentation, have been adopted, and a wide scope of topics have been examined in one way or another, covering not only world languages, but also human behaviors, brains and cultural products  ...  For example, the neuroimaging techniques reveal the complex brain mechanisms behind linguistic behaviors and close correlations between linguistic and nonlinguistic activities.  ...

More than words: word predictability, prosody, gesture and mouth movements in natural language comprehension

Ye Zhang, Diego Frassinelli, Jyrki Tuomainen, Jeremy I. Skipper, Gabriella Vigliocco
2021 Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
We found that brain responses to words were affected by informativeness of co-occurring multimodal cues, indicating that comprehension relies on linguistic and non-linguistic cues.  ...  The ecology of human language is face-to-face interaction, comprising cues such as prosody, co-speech gestures and mouth movements.  ...  Importantly, the dissociation between meaningful and beat gestures further allows us to exclude the possibility that the N400 reduction observed (for meaningful gestures and prosody) resulted from cues  ...

The Thickness of Musical Pitch

Sarah Dolscheid, Shakila Shayan, Asifa Majid, Daniel Casasanto
2013 Psychological Science  
Differences in language were reflected in differences in performance on two pitchreproduction tasks, even though the tasks used simple, nonlinguistic stimuli and responses.  ...  To find out, we used nonlinguistic psychophysical tasks to compare mental representations of musical pitch in native speakers of Dutch and Farsi.  ...  Most also spoke some Dutch or English and so may have been exposed to linguistic height metaphors. In principle, such exposure could eliminate the predicted effects, but it could not produce them. 2.  ...
