요약
"Introduction There are numerous neurobiological models of language, ranging from those concerned with speech perception, white matter structure, and the function of dorsal and ventral streams. Departing somewhat from typical neurolinguistic terrain, this book is aimed to serve as a comprehensive, state-of-the-art compendium on the oscillatory basis of language, with the central focus being on phrase structure building. Along with providing an extensive overview of the theoretical and experimental work done in recent decades into the electrophysiological basis of language, it will also formulate a number of novel hypotheses concerning the potential relationship between neurobiology and linguistic computation, and will propose a specific neurocomputational model of language comprehension argued to be empirically justifiable and neurobiologically feasible. Much of the book is formulated as a literature review, and theoretical discussions and evaluations of this literature are ideally aimed at graduate students and experts in the field of psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and evolutionary linguistics. Advanced undergraduate students could follow the core arguments and narrative while stepping over some of the more technical details concerning, for instance, phase-coupling and migrating oscillations. For the experts, this book provides a synthesis of current knowledge in a new format, centred on the perspective of theoretical linguistics, and executed alongside the presentation of novel theoretical proposals and research directions. In particular, the latter half of the book will suggest a theory of the mapping between oscillatory activity in different frequency bands (e.g. delta, theta, alpha, beta, gamma) and syntactic and semantic primitives"--
