Project: Language and imagery: neural correlates of time and place representations during sentence and text comprehension

project duration
01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-12
The functional neuroanatomy of language comprehension of text is largely unknown. Spatial semantics in sentence comprehension activate nonlinguïstic spatial brain areas. Relational concepts are constructed (in a perceptual or verbal-propositional manner) in modality-specific areas. We wonder if a a situational model on text level also has a spatial (or temporal) organisation and if sentences and text activate the same neural corelates.
