Words do not stand alone: Do not ignore a word's role when examining patterns of activation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):289-290 (1999)
Pulvermüller traces the differences in brain activity associated with function and content words. The model considers words displayed primarily in isolation. Research on letter detection suggests that what distinguishes function from content words are their roles in text. Hence a model that fails to consider context effects on the processing of words provides an insufficient accounting of word representation in the brain.
