LOVE independently of context. In addition, there is some evidence that damage in and around this area may also be involved in subsequent resolution of these "meanings" to a single "contextually appropriate" interpretation, again, possibly related to the use of this substrate in promoting and regulating the rapid availability of lexical information to ongoing comprehension processes. Damage to the cortical (and perhaps subcortical) region in and around Broca's area appears to undermine both the ability to make all information stored with a word "immediately" available for further sentence processing9 and to also disrupt the subsequent integration of those word meanings with context.

Love, Bouck, Hald, Hickok, & Swinney (in prep) have recently conducted a study involving 66 native English right handed individuals which also explored possible hemispheric asymmetries in lexical ambiguity resolution in auditory sentence processing employing a CMLP experiment with divided field presentation of visual priming target probes. In this study lexically ambiguous words were embedded in (not at the end of) auditory sentences which contained strong a-priori contextually biasing material (As in the example given previously in this paper concerning the ambiguity "PEN").
