Processing Time Reference in Healthy Brain: an ERP study

P. 38-39.
Dragoy O., Stowe L., Bos L., Bastiaanse R.

People suffering from agrammatic aphasia are known to have problems with different kinds of verbal inflection. Tense inflection is mostly more impaired than subject-verb agreementinflection. Problems with tense could either be morphosyntactic or morphosemantic in nature. Indications for the latter come from studies in which the past was found to be more impaired than present tense, even when the verbs where in their base position and both for uninflected as for inflected verbs. In the study presented here this issue is further explored, first in a grammaticality judgment task administered to agrammatic patients, then in a reaction time (RT) experiment with healthy participants.
