Sensorimotor cortices casually contribute to auditory foreign language vocabulary translation following multisensory learning
Sprache des Titels:
The role played by sensory and motor cortices in recognition memory is highly debated. According to the predictive coding theory of multisensory learning, sensory and motor brain regions that encode multisensory information during learning may support later recognition of learned stimuli, even under unisensory recognition conditions. We used the neurodisruptive effects of inhibitory transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate whether sensorimotor cortical responses causally contribute to the auditory translation of foreign language (L2) vocabulary following multisensory L2 training.
