Verbal and nominal agreement: An fMRI study

Manuel Carreiras, Ileana Quiñones, Simona Mancini, Juan Andrés Hernández-Cabrera, Horacio Barber
2015 NeuroImage  
In this fMRI study, we investigated the neuro-cognitive processes of agreement associated with number feature covariance in subject-verb agreement and determiner-noun concord in Spanish by creating mismatches  ...  These results suggest that general conflict-monitoring processes operate in parallel with language-specific mechanisms that are sensitive to the specificity of agreement type for the detection of feature  ...  subject-verb agreement).  ...

Nikki Janssen, Roy P C Kessels, Rogier B Mars, Alberto Llera, Christian F Beckmann, Ardi Roelofs
2022 Cerebral Cortex  
We observed that the repetition of spoken pseudowords is mediated by the subtract of STG, while generating an appropriate verb to a spoken noun is mediated by the subtract of MTG.  ...  Although they have been hypothesized to mediate different functions in speech production, direct evidence for this hypothesis is lacking.  ...  A) Region of interest for LDA, where the fMRI-based AF subtracts arc around the lateral sulcus.  ...

Semantic and syntactic processing in Chinese sentence comprehension: Evidence from event-related potentials

Zheng Ye, Yue-jia Luo, Angela D. Friederici, Xiaolin Zhou
2006 Brain Research  
Participants were auditorily presented with Chinese ba sentences, which were either correct, semantically incorrect, syntactically incorrect, or both semantically and syntactically incorrect.  ...  The syntactic violation, which was created by eliminating the object-noun phrase from a preposition-object phrase structure, elicited an early starting anterior negativity which merged into a sustained  ...  Acknowledgments This study was supported by grants from China National Pandeng Program (95-special-09), Ministry of Science and Technology (2002CCA01000), and Ministry of Education (01002, 02170), Chinese  ...

Structural integration in language and music: Evidence for a shared system

Evelina Fedorenko, Aniruddh Patel, Daniel Casasanto, Jonathan Winawer, Edward Gibson
2009 Memory & Cognition  
These results provide evidence for an overlap in structural processing between language and music.  ...  The results revealed an interaction between linguistic and musical complexity such that the difference between the subject-and object-extracted relative clause conditions was larger in the out-of-key condition  ...  This research was supported in part by the Neurosciences Research Foundation as part of its program on music and the brain at The Neurosciences Institute, where A.P. is the Esther J.  ...

On Broca, brain, and binding: a new framework

Peter Hagoort
2005 Trends in Cognitive Sciences

Why not model spoken word recognition instead of phoneme monitoring?

Jean Vroomen, Beatrice de Gelder
2000 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
We therefore present a new modular model of phonemic decision making, the Merge model. In Merge, information flows from prelexical processes to the lexicon without feedback.  ...  Because phonemic decisions are based on the merging of prelexical and lexical information, Merge correctly predicts lexical involvement in phonemic decisions in both words and nonwords.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Support was provided by National Institutes of Health (DC02134). We thank Tom Deelman (now at Southwest Bell Communications) for helpful discussion.  ...
