Abstract

The research reported here is on the semantics and syntax of the signs '+' and '=' as exhibited in an event related potential (ERP) study. The experiment examined three variants of addition sentences consisting of sums smaller than 10, and investigates the differential processing of the numbers vs. the '+', and '=' signs.
