A técnica de ERP no processamento de sentenças de crianças: uma revisão / The ERP technique in children’s sentence processing: a review

Marília Uchôa Cavalcanti Lott de Moraes Costa

Abstract


A medição da ativação cerebral por meio da técnica de potenciais relacionados a eventos (ERP) tem sido valiosa para lançar luz sobre diversas cognições humanas. A linguagem é uma das cognições que têm sido estudadas com essa técnica de grande resolução temporal entre o estímulo apresentado e a ativação observada decorrente desse estímulo. A área de aquisição da linguagem tem se beneficiado especialmente dessa técnica, dado que é possível investigar relações entre dados linguísticos e a ativação cerebral sem a necessidade de uma resposta explícita, como apertar um botão ou apontar para uma imagem. O objetivo deste artigo é apresentar o estado da arte sobre o processamento de frases em crianças utilizando a técnica de ERP.


Keywords


ERP/EEG; processamento de frases; aquisição da linguagem; N400; P600.
