Final Report Summary - LIPS (Lexical information processes and their spatio-temporal dynamics)

We seek to understand how words are stored in the mind and brain, and how we access this knowledge when we produce language (in speaking or in writing). Because the average speaker knows many words, one crucial aspect to be understood is how we select the right word at the right time, usually about three times per second. Our research investigates and clarifies a process usually referred to as "lexical selection" through which words are chosen to express ideas. We try to provide a view of this process that combines cognitive descriptions with specific neurophysiological pathways.
