Holle, H., Gunter, T. C., Rüschemeyer, S., Hennenlotter, A., & Iacoboni, M. (2008). Neural correlates of the processing of co-speech gestures. NeuroImage, 39(4), (2010-2024). doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2007.10.055. ISSN 1053-8119

In communicative situations, speech is often accompanied by gestures. For example, speakers tend to illustrate certain contents of speech by means of iconic gestures which are hand movements that bear a formal relationship to the contents of speech.... Read More

The role of iconic gestures in speech disambiguation: ERP evidence (2007)
Journal Article
Holle, H., & Gunter, T. C. (2007). The role of iconic gestures in speech disambiguation: ERP evidence. Journal of cognitive neuroscience, 19(7), 1175-1192. doi:10.1162/jocn.2007.19.7.1175

The present series of experiments explored the extent to which iconic gestures convey information not found in speech. Electroencephalogram (EEG) was recorded as participants watched videos of a person gesturing and speaking simultaneously. The exper... Read More
