Phonological processing in language production: time course of brain activity

Heim, St.CA; Friederici, A. D.

Collapse Box


Recent neuroimaging studies provide evidence for a shared neural network for phonological processing in language production and comprehension. The temporal dynamics in this network during comprehension has been investigated by Thierry et al., who showed a primacy for Wernicke's over Broca's area. In the present study, we demonstrate the reversed pattern for language production. These results can be interpreted with respect to the functionality of the different regions within the shared network, with Wernicke's area being the sound form store and Broca's area a processor necessary to extract relevant phonological information from that store.
