Isolating syntax in natural language: MEG evidence for an early contribution of left posterior temporal cortex [article]

Graham Flick, Liina Pylkkänena
2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
The combined results draw an initial picture of the rapid spatio-temporal dynamics of the syntactic and semantic composition network in sentence processing.  ...  We observed a sharp activity increase in the left posterior temporal lobe (PTL) when syntactic composition was more straightforward, approximately 200 ms after adjective onset.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported by grant G1001 from the NYUAD Institute, New York University Abu Dhabi (LP).  ...

Representation of the verb's argument-structure in the human brain

Ramin Assadollahi, Brigitte S Rockstroh
2008 BMC Neuroscience  
Conclusion: Localization of sources of activity suggests that the activation in temporal and frontal regions varies with the degree by which representations of an event as a part of the verbs' semantics  ...  The two experiments of the present study examined whether and how this processing is reflected in distinct spatio-temporal cortical response patterns to isolated verbs and/or verbs presented in minimal  ...  Stephan Moratti in creating figures, and the assistance of Andreas Michael in data collection.  ...
