Written on November 30, 2009 by PsychIE Author in Uncategorized

busquedadepalabrasWe came across a reasearch article in the digital version of the newspaperEl Mundo” where a team of researchers at “Universidad de Pompeu Fabra” and “El Instituto Catalán de Investigación y Estudios Avanzados” (ICREA) in Barcelona, have studied the time tha human brain needs to access information associated with word, and how long it takes to select the most suitable word relative to particular discourse.

This first study, wich demostrates direct proof of cerebral activity in real time, froms part of a broader objective whose aim is the development of a temporal map of the different stages of processing which the brain must carry out in order to speak.

The results of this research can be found in the digital version of the magazine “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” (PNAS).
