  4. 4. Word Learning in the Developing Brain : ERP Dynamics of Learning Word-Object Associations

    Author : Kristina Borgström; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Word Learning; Language development; EEG; ERP; N400;

    Abstract : This dissertation investigated electrophysiological measures of individual differences in toddlers’ ability to learn novel object labels and process familiar object words and their referents. The studies measured both visual and auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) in response to pictures of objects and words in a longitudinal sample of 20- to 24-month-olds, an age of dynamic vocabulary development.
