Objective: We report the case of a professional violin player who underwent an awake craniotomy to resect a tumour in the left …

Picture naming is a language task that involves multiple neural networks and is used to probe aphasia-induced language deficits. The …

Studies suggest that alpha–beta power decreases index word retrieval in context-driven word production. We recorded the …

The response to an upcoming salient event is accelerated when the event is expected given the preceding events i.e. a temporal context …

In picture-word interference experiments, participants name pictures (e.g., of a cat) while trying to ignore distractor words. Mean …

Our understanding of neuroplasticity following stroke is predominantly based on neuroimaging measures that cannot address the subsecond …

Language is typically studied in isolation from memory. We demonstrate that the same neuronal computations used by the hippocampus for …

Recently, the field of spoken-word production has seen an increasing interest in the use of the electroencephalogram (EEG), mainly for …

Disagreement exists about how bilingual speakers select words, in particular, whether words in another language compete, or competition …

When engaged in a conversation, speakers sometimes have to withhold a planned response, for example, before it is their turn to speak. …

Previous dual-task studies examining the locus of semantic interference of distractor words in picture naming have obtained diverging …

Two major components form the basis of spoken word production: the access of conceptual and lexical/phonological information in …

Evidence from dual-task performance indicates that speakers prefer not to select simultaneous responses in picture naming and another …

A hotly debated issue concerning spoken word production is whether lexical selection is by competition or not. Recently, Mahon, Garcea, …

Accumulating evidence suggests that some degree of attentional control is required to regulate and monitor processes underlying …

Two fundamental factors affecting the speed of spoken word production are lexical frequency and sentential constraint, but little is …

Particle verbs (e.g., look up) are lexical items for which particle and verb share a single lexical entry. Using event-related brain …

A fundamental issue in psycholinguistics concerns how speakers retrieve intended words from long-term memory. According to a …
