Grant Support NIH BRAIN, U01NS121471
Performance Period   April 2021 - January 2026


Goal: We aim to harness the precision of human intracranial recordings and a large set of diverse linguistic materials designed to best discriminate among candidate artificial neural networks (ANNs) to test computational models of language understanding.

Study population and setting:

  • Participants include individuals with intractable epilepsy undergoing temporary implantation of subdural electrode arrays and depth electrodes to localize epileptogenic zones before brain resection.

Data generated:

  • Intracranial recordings and task data will be archived on DABI and OSF.
