TITLE: JOINT PRODUCTION: THE EFFECT OF PREDICTING OTHER’S UPCOMING WORDS
Day: Friday, November 22th
Where?: classroom 014, Faculty of Arts
When having a conversation, predicting our interlocutor’s verbal actions and integrating them in our own action plan is key, as it is for the success of any joint activity. I will present an electrophysiological investigation on the involvement of the production system in predicting other’s verbal actions. Specifically, whether lexical processes that occur when we name objects can also be observed during joint action when our partner has to name those objects. Then I will present some evidence on the consequences that being engaged in a joint verbal activity exert on the speaker’s posterior word retrieval.
