Abstract

The study is aimed to study phonological versus logographical effects in neural cognitions when perceiving Chinese characters. The paradigm has a series of figural animal, ancient pictographic Chinese character, modern Chinese character, and mandarin-based syllables. Participants are grouped by two levels of word recognition skills, the mastered-group and the learner-group. The current study used Electrical Geodesics (EGI) system with dense array geodesic sensor nets to record digitalized electroencephalogram and event-related potentials. Results show that behavioral and neural cognitive reactions to the designed characters indeed have varied phonological and logographical effects on cortical regions. Conclusions and inferences can benefit developments of cognitive science.
