Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We used event related potentials (ERPs) and sLORETA to determine how the management of processing cost in pronoun interpretation is affected by age (young vs. elderly) and by the presence of a cue for pragmatic inferencing. The syntactic relation between an explicit pronoun and its antecedent was manipulated, yielding two types of sentences (Type 1: syntactic (cheap) or discourse (costly) processing routes available; violation of a conversational convention vs. Type 2: exclusive availability of the discourse route; conformity to conversational conventions). For the young adults a Late Positivity and selective activation of right BA9 and BA31 emerged in type 1 sentences, indexing the effort required to compute the pragmatic inference cued by the violation of a conversational convention (use of an explicit pronoun in type 1 sentences, where a null/silent would be more likely). This effect is absent in older participants, suggesting that, in their case, the processor fails to initially capture the oddity of the explicit pronoun, which is therefore conveniently processed at the cheaper syntactic level, but rendering the identity of its original form unavailable for later pragmatic inferential processing. Thus, older participants, unlike the young, recruit different processing routes for each sentence type, as demonstrated by an N400 and selective activation of right BA18 for type 2 sentences, in which only the discourse route is available. This N400 is absent in younger participants, since the clash between the expected null pronoun and the explicit one occurring in type 1 sentences leads the processor to shift resolution to the discourse level, where the unexpected form will remain accessible to the pragmatic module.

Pronoun resolution to commanders and to recessors: A view from event-related brain potentials
Publication year: 2009

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We present results from an online experiment designed to probe the cognitive underpinnings of intra-sentential pronoun resolution. Event-related brain potentials were used to test the hypothesis that the processing of anaphoric links established between pronouns and non commanding antecedents demands more cognitive resources than the processing of anaphoric links to commanding antecedents. The experimental results obtained show, among others, a major N400-like effect elicited by the pronouns resolved to the non-commanding antecedent. This enhanced negativity suggests that, as hypothesized, resolving a pronoun to a non commanding antecedent is a more resource demanding process than resolving it to an antecedent in a commanding position. Our results can be interpreted within a theoretical framework for anaphor resolution that distinguishes two processing routes: a more resource-demanding discourse-based route and a less taxing syntax-only route.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neste artigo apresentam-se normas para as variáveis familiaridade, imaginabilidade e idade de aquisição em 252 nomes comuns. Este corpus é o primeiro caracterizado para Português Europeu utilizando os mesmos procedimentos e listas de palavras para as três variáveis e aplicando, na avaliação de todas as variáveis, versões das instruções definidas em Gilhooly e Logie (1980). Pretendeu-se também que as palavras seleccionadas permitissem a operacionalização, por futuros utilizadores destas normas, das variáveis adicionais categoria semântica, extensão e frequência objectiva. Assim, o corpus integra dez categorias semânticas (Agentes de Actividades Humanas, Animais, Frutos, Legumes/Vegetais, Artefactos – Instrumentos, Vestuário, Transportes, Outros –, Acontecimentos e Estados/Atributos Psicológicos), duas categorias de extensão (palavras longas e palavras curtas) e três categorias de frequência (palavras muito frequentes, pouco frequentes e de frequência intermédia). Os dados foram recolhidos em sessões individuais junto a 214 participantes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
The present study aims at characterizing the differences between young adults and healthy elderly with respect to the Event Related Potentials (ERPs) elicited by pronoun resolution. We target differences occurring in the early stages of such processing, during which syntactic structure plays the key role in identifying the pronoun’s antecedent, as well as later stages, during which pragmatic inferences and referent integration within the discourse representation are deemed to occur. We hypothesized that, although syntactic processing is well preserved in the elderly group, the same group should show a hindered ability to process pragmatic inferences, namely inferences based upon breaches of pragmatic principles, requiring, in order to be detected, the prediction of the pronominal choice that would conform to the pragmatic principle at stake.
METHODS:
Participants: 20 elderly (65-80 year old), 20 young adults (20-26 years old).
Materials: Gender agreement in 48 pairs of Portuguese complex sentences was manipulated in order to cause pronoun resolution either with the c-commanding NP (1: syntactic antecedent detection; breach of Grice’s maxim of manner - an explicit pronoun occurs instead the portuguese null pronoun (pro), the most economic and common choice for this syntactic context) or with the NP in a genitive recess (2: discourse/semantic
antecedent detection; No breach of pragmatic principles), e.g. (1) [[The butler]MASC of [the countess]FEM](i)MASC quarreled with the servant to whom he(i)MASC had lent some money.
(2) [[The employee]FEM of [the butcher](i)MASC]FEM quarreled with the client to whom he(i)MASC had sold spoilt sausages.
RESULTS:
As expected, we found in both age groups an enhanced early, frontally dominant, negativity (250-450 ms time window), indexing a greater processing effort during the first processing stage of the pronoun in type 2 sentences. Also in line with our predictions, an enhanced Late Positivity (450-600 ms time window) emerges in type (1) sentences for the young adults, indexing the additional effort required to compute the pragmatic inference conveyed by the breach of Grice’s maxim of manner. We interpret the absence of this effect in the elderly group as evidence of hindered predictive processing, which fails to provide the basis for the pragmatic inference.

History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Resolving pronouns to antecedents in commanding and non commanding positions: preliminary results from ERP research

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We test the hypothesis that the implementation of dependencies at the level of discourse has a higher processing cost than the implementation of dependencies within syntax alone. To this end we use event-related potentials to examine the implementation of anaphoric links established between pronouns and non commanding antecedents (discourse-based dependency) and contrast that with the processing of anaphoric links to commanding antecedents (syntax-only dependency). The experimental results obtained show a N400-like effect associated with the formation of the pronoun-non-commanding antecedent dependency. This enhanced negativity for pronouns resolved to non-commanding antecedents supports our hypothesis that discourse-based processes place different computational demands on the comprehension system than syntax-only processes. This kind of evidence is thus consistent with models of pronominal representation whereby antecedents are established by both syntactic and non-syntactic means.
