Part of the Abralin series of linguistics lectures: “A Neurocomputational Perspective on Syntax“.
‘How are basic linguistic computations implemented in the brain? Drawing on recent findings from the biological and cognitive sciences, I will propose a neurocomputational model of language comprehension, with particular reference to syntactic and semantic processing. Reviewing the current state of the art, I will defend a multiplexing model of cross-frequency coupling in language comprehension, viewing this higher cognitive capacity as being grounded in endogenous neural oscillatory behaviour. Recent findings from theoretical syntax and semantics will be consulted in order to more carefully frame the implementation and development of this neurocomputational architecture. Alternative accounts in the literature will also be evaluated.’
