This chapter discusses and reviews the available evidence for the involvement of cortical areas in single-word processing. It also evaluates how far specific cortical activations can be linked to specific processing components. As such, brief recapitulations of the processing components assumed by current psycholinguistic models may help to analyze the variety of paradigms used in brain-imaging work.

Keywords: evidence; single-word processing; cortical activations; cortical areas; processing components; psycholinguistic models; paradigms; brain-imaging work
