Neuroimaging studies of language should connect with (psycho)linguistic theories

David Poeppel, Susan Johnson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


PET studies in domains like vision and attention have been successful because the experiments are the product of highly articulated theories. In contrast, the results of PET studies investigating language processing are difficult to interpret. We suggest that this difficulty is due to the more tentative connection of these experiments with the insights of psycholinguistics and linguistic theory.
