My excellent colleague Neil Cohn and I have had another paper accepted for publication at Scientific Reports! Entitled "Predictability modulates neurocognitivesemantic processing of non-verbal narratives", this paper shows that visual narratives (i.e. comic strips) show similar modulations of the N400 amplitude by cloze rating as language does. It's well established that more predictable words in sentences elicit smaller N400 amplitudes than less predictable words, suggesting that predictability can help facilitate semantic processing. However, no one had extended this to visual narratives before. We show for the first time that visual narratives show the same type of modulation by predictability, adding more evidence to the idea that visual and linguistic narrative processing rely on similar domain-general cognitive mechanisms. Keep an eye on my Publications page, I'll post a link to the full-text article when it's available!
