Language: Specifying the Site of Modality-Independent Meaning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Language processing can be triggered by auditory, visual or somatosensory input. A recent study has provided new insight into a fundamental issue raised by this observation: how is knowledge of language implemented in the human brain such that speakers can use any type of sensory-motor input-output system for comprehension and production?
