"Tomato ...I mean eggplant"
Saying one word when we mean to say another is a common feature of our everyday speech. When the brain's left hemisphere is damaged by stroke or other injury, the tendency to produce semantic errors is heightened, sometimes dramatically. This talk will review research findings in neuropsychology, computational modeling, and neuroscience in search of an understanding of how and why semantic errors arise.
