1. What do brain-damaged patients tell us about phonological mediation?

  • Their brains have gone loopy loo so nothing
  • It is necessary, patients can understand no written words/sound patterns
  • It is not necessary, patients can understand some written words, but not sound pattern
  • It is necessary, patients can understand some written words and sound patterns

2. How can TMS be used to study brain activation?

  • What does TMS even stand for?
  • It disrupts function and then measures blood flow
  • It disrupts function and then measures outcomes
  • It disrupts blood flow then measures outcomes

3. Who's experiment found showed that phonological mediation still occurs?

  • Van Orden - less likely if high frequency words
  • Van Ostrol - less likely if high frequency words
  • Vin Diesel - boy got guns
  • Van Outken - less likely if low frequency words

4. Explain the dual route model please :)

  • Separate pathways for everything (reading, assembly, retrieval)
  • Not a scooby doo
  • Functionally and anatomically separate pathways for reading, assembly and retrieval
  • Combined functional and anatomical pathways for assembly

5. How does TMS work?

  • Brief electrical pulse of coil, strong magnetic flux which stops all nerves' activation
  • Brief electrical pulse of coil, induces brief but strong magnetic flux = disrupting activity in axons
  • I don't understand the question so I'm going for...transcranial magnetic stimulation
  • Long electrical pulse of coil, short magnetic flux, causing disruption in axons
