The electrophysiological reality of parafoveal processing: On the validity of language-related ERPs in natural reading

A central question in psycholinguistics is how the human brain processes language in real time. To answer this question, the differences between auditory and visual processing have to be considered. The present dissertation examines the extent to which event-related potentials (ERPs) in the human el...
