Switching direction modulates the engagement of cognitive control in bilingual reading comprehension: An ERP study
Publication date: August 2020Source: Journal of Neurolinguistics, Volume 55Author(s): Evelyn Bosma, Leticia PablosAbstractWhile switching costs in production have been explained in terms of top-down cognitive control, researchers do not agree whether switching costs in comprehension should be interpreted in the same way. Within the BIA + model, it has been claimed that the comprehension of code-switches can be explained sufficiently in terms of bottom-up activation of lexical representations. In the current electrophysiological study, L1 speakers of Dutch with high proficiency in L2 English (n = 63) com...

Publication date: August 2020Source: Journal of Neurolinguistics, Volume 55Author(s): Toshiki Iwabuchi, Masato Ohba, Kenji Ogawa, Toshio InuiAbstractVarious sentences can describe the same event from different perspectives (e.g., “John kicked Mike.” and “Mike was kicked by John.”). Humans can easily verify propositional equivalence of these sentences, but the underlying brain mechanisms are unclear. The present study examined whether the perspective taking system is involved in the verification of propositional equivalence between two sentences having different grammatical subjects, using a function...

Minimal overlap in language control across production and comprehension: Evidence from read-aloud versus eye-tracking tasks
Publication date: May 2020Source: Journal of Neurolinguistics, Volume 54Author(s): Danbi Ahn, Matthew J. Abbott, Keith Rayner, Victor S. Ferreira, Tamar H. GollanAbstractBilinguals are remarkable at language control—switching between languages only when they want. However, language control in production can involve switch costs. That is, switching to another language takes longer than staying in the same language. Moreover, bilinguals sometimes produce language intrusion errors, mistakenly producing words in an unintended language (e.g., Spanish–English bilinguals saying “pero” instead of “but...

Asymmetric binarity as a cognitive universal: The rhythm of syntactic structures
Publication date: May 2020Source: Journal of Neurolinguistics, Volume 54Author(s): Danielle Fahey, Dirk-Bart den OudenAbstractIn syntactic and rhythmic structure, universal rules group elements hierarchically and asymmetrically. In syntax, the operation ‘merge’ is theorized to combine elements in phrasal structures, with one element governing the other, recursively, to form sentences. In rhythm, a similar asymmetric hierarchy of beats is proposed in the Generative Theory of Tonal Music. Just like syntactic processing, assigning beats into rhythmic strings, ‘beat induction,’ is automatic and subconsc...

Mapping vowel sounds onto phonemic categories in two regional varieties of French: An ERP study
This study examines ERP correlates of the different processes associating two phones to one vs. two phonemic categories in two regional varieties of French. Two groups of French listeners are compared, respectively exploiting two regional varieties, with a contrast between the mid-low /ϵ/ and the mid-high /e/ for Northern French (NF) but not for Southern French (SF). It is expected that the competition between the two close categories /e/ vs. /ϵ/ in NF could induce an ERP modulation in the processing of/ϵ/compared to a phoneme/a/with no close competitor, serving as control. In contrast, there should be no difference in ...

Supplementary motor area aphasia revisited
ConclusionRegardless of its rarity, it is evident that damage in the left SMA usually results in a clinical syndrome that clearly corresponds to aphasia. Interpreting this as an aphasia can aid in overcoming the limited idea of a “language zone” located in the perisylvian area of the left hemisphere, that was proposed over one century ago.

The ERP correlates of thematic role assignment for passive versus active sentences
This study uses ERPs to investigate how English speakers assign thematic roles while building the structure and meaning of grammatical passive versus active sentences, in which both nouns are equally plausible agents and patients. In two separate experiments, participants exhibited a frontal positivity in response to passive versus active sentences at the point they encountered the past participle form of the lexical verb (e.g., The policeman was tackling the robber/tackled by the robber …). Such frontal positivities have previously been associated with processing grammatical sentences that involve increased syntact...

Male fashionistas and female football fans: Gender stereotypes affect neurophysiological correlates of semantic processing during speech comprehension
Publication date: February 2020Source: Journal of Neurolinguistics, Volume 53Author(s): Angela Grant, Sarah Grey, Janet G. van HellAbstractRecent studies have shown that pre-existing contextual information, such as gender stereotypes, is incorporated online during comprehension (e.g., Van Berkum, van den Brink, Tesink, Kos, & Hagoort, 2008). Stereotypes, however, are not static entities, and social role theory suggests that they may be influenced by the behavior of members of the group (Eagly, 1987). Consequently, our study examines how gender stereotypes affect the semantic processing of statements from both a male an...

A critical review of the behavioral, neuroimaging, and electrophysiological studies of co-activation of representations during word production

We then discuss alternative approaches which might be more fruitful i...

In this study, we used a paradigm combining two different sequential motor tasks, namely linear vs. non-linear self-administration of sentences, with correctness judgment of the sentences (half of them could include a morphosyntactic violation) while recording event-related potentials, ERPs. The sentences could be of either three types: subject-relative sentences, embedded PP sentences -with a displaced prepositional phrase between the subject and the verb-, or coordinate subject sentences - with two conjoined noun phrases as subject. Overall, results revealed significant modulations in the ERP components, connected to the...
