Gredebäck, G., Melinder, A.M.D., Daum, M. (2010) The Development and Neural Basis of Pointing Comprehension. Social Neuroscience, 5, 441-450.



The neurological correlates of pointing comprehension in adults and 8-month-old infants are explored. Both age groups demonstrate differential activation to congruent and incongruent pointing gestures over posterior temporal areas. The functional similarity of the adult N200 and the infant P400 component suggests that they might have a common source.
