How is language encoded in the brain during everyday conversations, and how is that linguistic encoding shared across interlocutors? Typical studies of the neural basis of language present subjects with predetermined, isolated words or sentences (Price, 2010), and do not consider the role of spontaneous language production nor linguistic neural coupling (Garrod & Pickering, 2004). Here, we aim to address both gaps and map brain areas involved in both speech production and comprehension during natural dialogue.
