|Neuro-imaging of Syntax and Sentence Processing|
Asaf Bachrach (INSERM-CEA)
18 septembre 2009
• Talk I: This talk will be composed of three parts. The first section will consist of a brief introduction to neurolinguistics and the Broca/Wernicke model. An effort will be made to distinguish between a performance and a competence perspective on the instantiation of language in the brain. In the second part of the talk I will present some fundamental concepts and techniques in brain imaging (with particular focus on fMRI). The third part of the talk will consist of a critical review of recent paradigms and results in the domain of neuroimaging of sentence processing and syntax.
• Talk II: In this talk I will focus on my own neuro-imaging work. I will first present fMRI results of the manipulation of probabilistic and structural measures during naturalistic on-line sentence processing. Then, I will present data from on-going research where we distinguish between the effect of the complexity of the syntactic structure and the complexity of its (phase-wise) derivation.
