Rapid syntactic pre-activation in Broca’s area: Concurrent electrophysiological and haemodynamic recordings

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Listeners are constantly trying to predict what the speaker will say next. We concurrently measured the electrophysiological and haemodynamic correlates of syntactic pre-activation, investigating when and where the brain processes speech melody cues to upcoming word order structure. Pre-activation of syntactic structure was reflected in a left-lateralised pre-activation negativity (PrAN), which was subserved by Broca’s area in the left inferior frontal gyrus, as well as the contiguous left anterior insula.
