William Matchin in Frontiers in Psychology

Now out, "'Syntactic perturbation' during production activates the right IFG, but not Broca’s area or the ATL" by William Matchin and Greg Hickok. The paper reports an fMRI experiment of ‘syntactic perturbation’ - a task that forced subjects to switch sentence constructions while speaking. The results highlighted the right IFG as a brain area potentially involved in facilitating syntactic restructuring through the inhibition of initial syntactic plans.
