Language and Cognitive Processes (LCP) provides an international forum for the publication of theoretical and experimental research into the mental processes and representations involved in language use.
LCP has recently broadened its remit by publishing a Special Section devoted to the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language. The development of cognitive neuroscience methodologies has significantly broadened the empirical scope of experimental language studies. Both hemodynamic imaging and electrophysiological approaches provide new perspectives on the representation and processing of language, and add important constraints on the development of theoretical accounts of language function.
All types of articles that reflect the strong interest in and growing influence of these tools will be considered for Cognitive Neuroscience of Language, including reviews, whose submission is encouraged. Submissions should exemplify the subject in its most straightforward sense: linking good cognitive science and good neuroscience to answer key questions about the nature of language and cognition.
