Abstract

Analyses of averaged auditory evoked responses to a list of 10 positive and 10 negative words led to the identification of a restricted region in the brain response which reliably discriminated between words differing in the semantic features "positive" and "negative." These data support the view that word meanings are composed of more basic components or features and are not stored simply as dictionary items in the brain.
