Top Highlights

  • Left ventral premotor cortex was sensitive to entropy of the probability distribution of the upcoming word, as has been found before for non-language stimuli.
  • Similarly, an important node in the semantic brain network, the left inferior parietal lobule (“angular gyrus”), also showed sensitivity to entropy
  • activations in the left middle frontal and right inferior frontal cortex, that were also sensitive to entropy, these are areas that most likely exhibit a top-down influence related to predictability of the upcoming word, onto other areas in the language network
