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

Söderström, Pelle LU ; Horne, Merle LU ; Mannfolk, Peter LU ; van Westen, Danielle LU and Roll, Mikael LU (2018) In Brain Research1966-01-01+01:00 1697. p.76-82
Abstract (Swedish)
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.
