Syntactic Processing in Left Prefrontal Cortex Is Independent of Lexical Meaning

Peter Indefrey, Peter Hagoort, Hans Herzog, Rüdiger J. Seitz, Colin M. Brown
2001 NeuroImage  
The data reveal that in syntactic error detection an area of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, adjacent to Broca's area, is specifically involved in the syntactic processing aspects, whereas other  ...  We report data on brain activation during syntactic processing, from an experiment on the detection of grammatical errors in meaningless sentences.  ...  Second, our results on pseudoword material clarify the role of the left posterior prefrontal cortex in sentence-level processing, by showing that it is indeed syntax-related processing rather than a syntactically  ...

On Broca, brain, and binding: a new framework

Peter Hagoort
2005 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
These two areas were the left posterior superior temporal gyrus and the left posterior inferior frontal cortex. The left posterior temporal cortex is known to be involved in lexical processing.  ...  On the basis of the meta-analysis of a large series of imaging studies on syntactic processing [24] , the hypothesis is that the left posterior superior temporal cortex (Wernicke's area) is involved in  ...

On Broca, Brain, and Binding [chapter]

Peter Hagoort
2006 Broca's Region  
In this case, our fascination makes us be lieve that "Broca's area" is a coherent notion. Closer inspection reveals that it stands for a family of con cepts that are loosely connected at best.  ...  Broca's area is one of these areas. No doubt, one of the main rea sons is that this area is often seen as distinctly human.  ...  Enzo Burnetii, and Yosef Grod/insky for their comments on an earlier ver sion of this chapter.  ...

Stimulus-independent neural coding of event semantics: Evidence from cross-sentence fMRI decoding [article]

Aliff Asyraff, Rafael Lemarchand, Andres Tamm, Paul Hoffman
2020 biorxiv/medrxiv   pre-print
In the reverse analysis, we tested for decoding of syntactic and lexical form, independent of the event being described.  ...  We found that neural patterns in a left-lateralised network of frontal, temporal and parietal regions discriminated events in a way that generalised successfully over changes in the syntactic and lexical  ...  Imaging was carried out at the Edinburgh Imaging Facility ( www.ed.ac.uk/ edinburgh-imaging ), University of Edinburgh, which is part of the SINAPSE collaboration ( www.sinapse.ac.uk ).  ...

Neural correlates of early-closure garden-path processing: Effects of prosody and plausibility

Dirk-Bart den Ouden, Michael Walsh Dickey, Catherine Anderson, Kiel Christianson
2016 Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology  
Region of interest (ROI) analyses in regions associated with complex syntactic processing are consistent with a role for posterior temporal cortex supporting access to verb argument structure.  ...  Garden-path processing was associated with upregulation in bilateral inferior parietal and right-hemisphere dorsolateral prefrontal and inferior frontal cortex, while differences between the strength and  ...  Together with the left posterior superior temporal cortex, left IFG appears to be part of a network that underlies syntactic processing, based on processing of word order (IFG) and lexical-syntactic information  ...

The Neurobiology of Language Beyond Single Words

Peter Hagoort, Peter Indefrey
2014 Annual Review of Neuroscience  
A meta-analysis of numerous neuroimaging studies reveals a clear dorsal/ventral gradient in both left inferior frontal cortex and left posterior temporal cortex, with dorsal foci for syntactic processing  ...  A hallmark of human language is that we combine lexical building blocks retrieved from memory in endless new ways. This combinatorial aspect of language is referred to as unification.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was in part supported by a Spinoza Award to P.H. and by support to P.I. from the Collaborative Research Center 991 of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).  ...

Neural aspects of second language representation and language control

Jubin Abutalebi
2008 Acta Psychologica  
A basic issue in the neurosciences of language is whether an L2 can be processed through the same neural mechanism underlying L1 acquisition and processing.  ...  However, neural differences for an L2 may be observed, in terms of more extended activity of the neural system mediating L1 processing.  ...  Hence, the deactivation of the left prefrontal cortex may be linked to the decrease of processing demands inherent to the task rather than any change in neural representation of lexical items in that region  ...
