Abstract, concrete and emotional words in the mental lexicon

Project: Dissertation

Layman's description

My thesis project investigates relations in the mental lexicon. There are differences in the brain’s processing of concrete words, e.g. ’orange’ and abstract words, e.g. ’idea’. A possible reason is concrete words’ relationship to sensorimotor information. The interaction of sensorimotor, emotional and linguistic information in word processing is explored in psycho- and neurolinguistic studies.
