Word versus task representation in neural networks

  • Thomas Elbert (a1), Christian Dobell (a1), Alessandro Angrilli (a1) (a2), Luciano Stegagno (a2) and Brigitte Rockstroh (a1)...

The Hebbian view of word representation is challenged by findings of task (level of processing)-dependent, event-related potential patterns that do not support the notion of a fixed set of neurons representing a given word. With cross-language phonological reliability encoding more asymmetrical left hemisphere activity is evoked than with word comprehension. This suggests a dynamical view of the brain as a self-organizing, connectivity-adjusting system.
