Semantic representation of abstract and concrete words: a mini-review of neural evidence

Maria Montefinese
2019 Journal of Neurophysiology  
The reviewed neuroimaging studies provide new evidence about the role of brain areas of the semantic network involved in the encoding of some types of information during processing of abstract and concrete  ...  concepts, better characterizing the neural underpinnings and the organizational principles of semantic representation of these types of word.  ...  To sum up, this study suggested a role of the left IFG as a neural crossroads between different types of information necessary to differentiate between abstract and concrete concepts.  ...

An ALE meta-analytical review of the neural correlates of abstract and concrete words

Madalina Bucur, Costanza Papagno
2021 Scientific Reports  
AbstractSeveral clinical studies have reported a double dissociation between abstract and concrete concepts, suggesting that they are processed by at least partly different networks in the brain.  ...  When only nouns were selected three left activation clusters were found to be associated with concrete stimuli and only one with abstract nouns (left IFG).  ...  di Trento e Rovereto and the Municipality of Trento.  ...

2015 Brain and Language  
Brain and Language. pp. 69-80. Abstract We investigated the neural correlates of concrete nouns with either many or few semantic features.  ...  Our results showed that the most reliable effects of semantic richness were located in the left angular gyrus (AG) and middle temporal gyrus (MTG), where activation was higher for semantically rich than  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by the Chilean Government through the Comisi-n Nacional de Investigaci-n Cient'fica y Tecnol-gica (Becas CONICYT) and the Fondo Nacional de Desarrollo Cient'fico  ...

Is Reduced Visual Processing the Price of Language?

Christer Johansson, Per Olav Folgerø
2022 Brain Sciences  
We systematically review the recent research literature investigating the relationship between language and perception. We see homologues of language-relevant brain functions predating language.  ...  We find support in converging evidence for a change in neural organization away from raw perception, thus pushing the emergence of language closer in time.  ...  A few initial ideas were presented and discussed by the first author at PROTOLANG 7, 7 September 2021.  ...

The Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory (P-FIT) of intelligence: Converging neuroimaging evidence

Rex E. Jung, Richard J. Haier
2007 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
The P-FIT model includes, by Brodmann areas (BAs): the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (BAs 6, 9, 10, 45, 46, 47), the inferior (BAs 39, 40) and superior (BA 7) parietal lobule, the anterior cingulate (  ...  We describe this network as the Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory (P-FIT).  ...  Moreover, the strongest functional connectivity differentiating high-and low-RAPM subjects was found between BAs 19 and 37 and the left anterior cingulate/medial frontal gyrus.  ...

2008 Cognitive Neuropsychology  
The present paper summarizes and reflects on our current knowledge concerning synaesthesia in all its aspects (cognition, behaviour, neurology, genetics, and demographics).  ...  The labour of many researchers, inside as well as outside of cognitive neuroscience, has transformed synaesthesia into a scientific reality whose existence can be demonstrated and studied empirically.  ...  in the brain (inferior temporal cortex, parietal and frontal cortex).  ...

Brain connections of words, perceptions and actions: A neurobiological model of spatio-temporal semantic activation in the human cortex

Rosario Tomasello, Max Garagnani, Thomas Wennekers, Friedemann Pulvermüller
2017 Neuropsychologia  
The model implements frontal and temporal cortical areas for language, perception, and action along with their connectivity.  ...  In this present work, we extend a neurocomputational model of human cortical function to simulate the time-course of cortical processes of understanding meaningful concrete words.  ...  The authors would also like to thank Valerie Keller for suggestions and comments on an earlier version of the manuscript and the HPC Service of ZEDAT, Freie Universität Berlin, for computing time.  ...

Intelligence and Cognitive Control [chapter]

2010 Handbook of Individual Differences in Cognition  
These approaches distinguish between EF in WM such as "shifting," "inhibition," "updating," and "coordination."  ...  We suggest that a functional framework of this kind may benefit from the consideration of an additional "integration" function .  ...  For example, the view that the left inferior frontal gyrus plays a role in resisting cognitive interference during goal-directed processing is based largely on observations that activation in left IFG  ...
