The processing of biologically plausible and implausible forms in American Sign Language: evidence for perceptual tuning

The human auditory system distinguishes speech-like information from general auditory signals in a remarkably fast and efficient way. Combining psychophysics and neurophysiology (MEG), we demonstrate a similar result for the processing of visual …

Word-specific repetition effects revealed by MEG and the implications for lexical access

This magnetoencephalography (MEG) study investigated the early stages of lexical access in reading, with the goal of establishing when initial contact with lexical information takes place. We identified two candidate evoked responses that could …

A lexical basis for N400 context effects: Evidence from MEG

The electrophysiological response to words during the ‘N400’ time window (~300–500 ms post-onset) is affected by the context in which the word is presented, but whether this effect reflects the impact of context on _access_ of the stored lexical …

Form, meaning and context in lexical access: MEG and behavioral evidence

One of the main challenges in the study of cognition is how to connect brain activity to cognitive processes. In the domain of language, this requires coordination between two different lines of research: theoretical models of linguistic knowledge …
