Representation of the verb’s argument-structure in the human brain

A verb’s argument structure defines the number and relationships of participants needed for a complete event. One-argument (intransitive) verbs require only a subject to make a complete sentence, while two- and three-argument verbs (transitives and ditransitives) normally take direct and indirect objects. In this MEG study, we scrutinised the neuro-magnetic brain response to different argument structures.
