Oscillatory brain activity differentially reflects false belief understanding and complementation syntax processing

Published in:┬áCognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 189-201 Abstract “False belief understanding (FBU) enables people to consider conflicting beliefs about the same situation. While language has been demonstrated to be a correlate of FBU, there is still controversy about the extent to which a specific aspect of language, complementation syntax, is a necessary condition for FBU. The present study tested an important notion from the debate proposing that complementation syntax task is redundant to FBU measures. Specifically, we examined electrophysiological correlates of false belief, false complementation, and their respective true conditions in adults using electroencephalography (EEG), focusing… Read More
