Psychology Lecture Series - Virtual Event

Title - Brain Processing of Expletives in Naturalistic Context

Speaker: Annette Glotfelty
PhD Student, UT Dallas

Expletives (“curse words”, “swear words”, “profanity”, “obscenities”) often present uniquely in individuals with neurological disease, providing evidence that these words are somehow processed differently than other types of words. This talk will present work in progress about brain representations of expletive perception in a rich contextual environment, using fMRI recordings of participants watching full length films.
