  1. 1. The role of semantic context and attentional resource distribution in semantic comprehension in Swedish pre-schoolers

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik

    Author : Johanna Renate Schelhaas; [2016]
    Keywords : Semantic context; attention; resource distribution; N400; dichotic listening task; preschool children; Swedish; Semantisk kontext; fördelning av hjärnresurser; uppmärksamhet; N400; diktotisk lyssningstest; svenska förskolebarn;

    Abstract : Research on semantic processing focused mainly on isolated units in language, which does not reflect the complexity of language. In order to understand how semantic information is processed in a wider context, the first goal of this thesis was to determine whether Swedish pre-school children are able to comprehend semantic context and if that context is semantically built up over time.

  2. 2. Speech Comprehension : Theoretical approaches and neural correlates

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Magnus Roos; [2015]
    Keywords : Language; speech comprehension; dual-route processing model; trace model; superior temporal gyrus; inferior frontal gyrus; N400; P600;

    Abstract : This review has examined the spatial and temporal neural activation of speech comprehension. Six theories on speech comprehension were selected and reviewed. The most fundamental structures for speech comprehension are the superior temporal gyrus, the fusiform gyrus, the temporal pole, the temporoparietal junction, and the inferior frontal gyrus.

  3. 3. Processing filler-gap dependencies in an L2: An Event-Related Potential study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Masterprogram: Språk och språkvetenskap

    Author : Andrea Schremm; [2012]
    Keywords : Languages and Literatures;

    Abstract : The present study investigated second language (L2) learners’ processing of filler-gap dependencies and tested the implications of Clahsen and Felser’s (2006) shallow structure hypothesis according to which L2 learners underuse syntactic information during the processing of these sentence types. Advanced L2 learners of English (native Swedish speakers) listened to English sentences with object-relative, subject-relative and finite complement clauses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Predicting the N400 Component in Manipulated and Unchanged Texts with a Semantic Probability Model

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Avdelningen för datorlingvistik

    Author : Johannes Bjerva; [2012]
    Keywords : Computational semantics; EEG corpus; Model integration; N400; Datorlingvistisk semantik; EEG-korpus; Modellintegrering; N400;

    Abstract : Within the field of computational linguistics, recent research has made successful advances in integrating word space models with n-gram models. This is of particular interest when a model that encapsulates both semantic and syntactic information is desirable. READ MORE

  5. 5. Using N400-Component for Automatic Thought Identification In a Natural Reading Task

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kognitionsvetenskap

    Author : Johan Emilsson; [2011]
    Keywords : EEG; N400; ANN; Artificial Neural Network; Word cluster; PCA; Semantic space; categorisation; reading task; Social Sciences; Science General;

    Abstract : Recent advances in human brain imaging techniques have shown that it is possible to correctly identify thoughts associated with specific categorises of conceptual knowledge. A semantic space is created through word clustering from a corpus and cross-referenced with words read during a natural reading task while at the same time recording EEG. READ MORE
