A1: Neurobehavioural Correlates of Surprisal in Online Comprehension

To illuminate the neurophysiological basis of surprisal, Project A1 will extend a neurocomputational model, developed during the first phase of the project, so as to explicitly link surprisal to ERP correlates of comprehension. Further, we will empirically test three predictions that follow from the model: 1) that the P600 is an index of interpretation-level surprisal, 2) that surprisal reflects the generation of forward and backward inferences, and 3) that surprisal reflects the interaction of world knowledge and linguistic experience.
