Example text

Our knowledge of neurodevelopment of language is rather limited at this time because, until recently, research in this area has been sparse; even so, there is sufficient information to demonstrate how these data can aid in addressing the questions of interest. Neurobiology of the Adult System Until recently, knowledge of neurobiology of language was gained from observing breakdown in function due to brain damage. This method of study led to the view that major functions of language were primarily localized to the left hemisphere, and that two large brain regions, Broca’s area (roughly left inferior frontal cortex) and Wernicke’s area (roughly left posterior superior temporal cortex), were responsible for most language functions.

As expected, the MMN is absent for first-language (L1) Spanish speakers who know little English, because they have had little or no experience with these phonemes until late in life. These results suggest that early L2 learners need attention for native-like performance, and thus show less automaticity in processing. , 1999; Winkler, Kujala, Alku, & Naatanen, 2003). A few ERP investigations of morphosyntactic processing in adults also suggest an early sensitive period for learning morphosyntactic patterns.

1 Instrumentation and signal processing for recording ERP data. Brain activity is recorded through electrodes (top left) and amplified, and the precise time of stimulus events is recorded with the digitized EEG (top right). Multiple events are averaged so that the ERP emerges from the background noise (bottom right). , standard deviation) in amplitude across the sites, as seen at P1 in this graph plotting multiple sites. posterior sites (P7 and P8) and the N1 obligatory component is largest at superior frontal sites (FC1 and FC2).
