The participants performed a visual lexical decision task in the MEG scanner.  ...  As our primary target was the M170, the region of interest was anatomically defined as the left FG/ITG and the analysis time window was restricted to 50-250 ms after word onset.  ...  Neuromodulation techniques such as tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) can enhance their comprehension abilities of syntactic structures by directing their brain activation.  ...

Influence of COMT Genotype on Antero-posterior Cortical Functional Connectivity Underlying Interference Resolution

Mathieu Jaspar, Marine Manard, Vinciane Dideberg, Vincent Bours, Pierre Maquet, Fabienne Collette
2014 Cerebral Cortex  
In this study, we were interested in the modulating effect of COMT genotype on anterior and posterior brain areas underlying interference resolution during a Stroop task.  ...  Abstract Genetic variability related to the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene (Val 158 Met) has received increasing attention as a possible modulator of executive functioning and its neural correlates  ...  The direct one, the lexico-semantic route, allows a direct association between the visual form of the word and its meaning.  ...

Psycho-computational modelling of the mental lexicon [chapter]

2020 Word Knowledge and Word Usage  
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) In more recent years, a new stimulation technique, namely transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), has been applied to the study of language.  ...  Recently, studies using neuromodulation techniques, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), have confirmed and refined previous data.  ...  The syntactic context of a new word has also been suggested to contribute to establishing its meaning (a mechanism known as "syntactic bootstrapping").  ...

2019 Journal of Eye Movement Research  
Higher dopamine levels led to faster simple reaction times but not choice reaction times and a trend towards higher reward sensitivity was observed. Data collection is currently ongoing.  ...  Reward was calculated as a fraction of the maximum depending on the performance (accuracy and speed).  ...  The current study investigated if this association is due to a direct influence of blinks on perception.  ...

Predicting while comprehending language: A theory and review

Martin J. Pickering, Chiara Gambi
2018 Psychological bulletin  
After defining prediction, we show that it occurs at all linguistic levels from semantics to form, and then propose a theory of which mechanisms comprehenders use to predict.  ...  We thus argue that prediction-by-production is an optional mechanism, which is augmented by mechanisms based on association.  ...  semantics during language production.  ...

Abstract Grammatical Processing of Nouns and Verbs in Broca's Area: Evidence from FMRI

Ned T. Sahin, Steven Pinker, Eric Halgren
2006 Cortex  
A BSTRACT The role of Broca's area in grammatical computation is unclear, because syntactic processing is often confounded with working memory, articulation, or semantic selection.  ...  Subtracting activity during verbatim reading from activity during zero inflection (which highlights the manipulation of inflectional features) implicated distinct regions of BA 44, 47 , and a premotor  ...  of verbs during transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) disruption of left inferior PFC (Shapiro et al., 2001 ; see also Cappa et al., 2002) .  ...
