Discovery in cognitive linguistics

“We showed that distinct linguistic processes are computed within small regions of Brocas area, separated in time and partially overlapping in space,” said Sahin. Specifically, the researchers found patterns of neuronal activity indicating lexical, grammatical and articulatory computations at roughly 200, 320 and 450 milliseconds after the target word was presented. These patterns were identical across nouns and verbs and consistent across patients.
