Keywords:

  • neural correlates of language processing;
  • neuronal models of language - inextricably bound to (psycho)linguistic theories;
  • time-sensitive neurophysiological measures and normal and pathological language processing;
  • event-related brain potentials (ERP);
  • semantic integration;
  • syntactic information (word category, morphosyntax, argument structure, case.) in word's lexical entry;
  • magnetoencephalography (MEG) - technique tracing changes in magnetic fields of neurone assemblies;
  • language processing in brain taking place in subsequent phases

Summary
