Poster 174: Jessica Stoker – Does the Language Production System Play a Role in Predictive Processes During Language Comprehension?

Faculty mentor: Jack Silcox

Comprehending language in everyday life is a computationally demanding process, context may be used to predict features of upcoming words in sentences. We aim to investigate this with the two major goals of our study. First, to establish if prediction can help facilitate the encoding of words into long-term memory (Exp1). Second, to assess whether or not the language production system is involved in these predictive processes by temporarily inhibiting these areas of the brain with TMS (Exp2).
