Sentence comprehension and the left inferior frontal gyrus: Storage, not computation

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):51-51 (2000)
Abstract
Neuroimaging evidence suggests that the left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG) supports temporary storage of linguistic material during linguistic tasks rather than computing a syntactic representation. The LIFG is not activated by simple sentences but by complex sentences and maintenance of word lists. Under this hypothesis, agrammatism should only disturb comprehension for constructions in which storage is essential.
