Giving comprehension a hand: What  does brain and behaviour reveal about speech-gesture comprehension?
Radboud University Nijmegen
Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
There is growing evidence that speakers use their meaningful actions (e.g. gestures) during speaking that are integrated with their linguistic information in the spoken channel and are designed for their addresses. In this talk I will review behavioral and brain evidence showing how our  listeners/viewers might be processing communicatively relevant visual information to reveal further insights about the processes underlying language comprehension situated in our meaningful bodily actions.
