Abstract:

<p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 20px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">The chapter uses electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) evidence to explore neural bases of telicity/atelicity computation. We focus on understanding how general language processing resources (e.g., working memory), as well as language-specific ones contribute to online computation of event structure from its distinctive features in spoken (English) and sign languages (e.g., American Sign Language, Croatian Sign Language).</span></p>
