Semantic composition and

Semantic composition and neurosemantics Consider a noun, e.g., “square”; an adjective of colour, e.g., “red”; and a present participle, e.g., “moving”: red moving square How does the brain compose a head-noun head noun referring to form with two satellites referring to colour and motion? One distinguishes three major areas for sense related information: the visual system (subdivided into the areas V1 … V5), the occipital areas, and the parietal ones. The major binding process is one of temporal synchronization of assemblies, which form wholes (gestalts) from parts, and desynchronisation, desynchronisation, which distinguishes figure and ground. The synchronization of two perceived stimuli can be measured in the Gamma- band (30-70 (30 70 Hz) and the Beta-band Beta band (15-20 (15 20 Hz) of an EEG. The fronto-parietal fronto parietal centres select features that are then passed on to working memory and planning. 12

Composition is therefore in principle characterized by the dynamic behaviour of cell assemblies in different parts of the brain, and the relevant brain-features brain features are the synchrony and asynchrony of firing in these assemblies. Further research has shown that memory and top-down top down processes in recognition and processing show similar mechanisms. The coding of compositional effects is, therefore, rather dynamic and temporal than static and spatial. 13
