Covert Response Patterns in Processing Language Stimuli. Final Report.
McGuigan, F. Joseph
The purpose of this research project is to specify critical events within a person during linguistic processing. The experiments reported here cover such topics as the effects of increased reading rate on covert processes, covert behavior as a direct electro-myographic measure of mediating responses, enhancement of speech perception by simultaneous reading, external auditory feedback from covert oral behavior during silent reading, evoked potentials to auditory stimuli, covert psychophysiological responses and language processing, covert linguistic behavior in deaf subjects during thinking, electrical measurements of neuromuscular states during mental activity, covert oral behavior during conversational and visual dreams, and the function of covert oral behavior ("silent speech") during silent reading. Details on each experiment are provided. Figures and tables help to illustrate the results. A list of references is included. (VM)
