Action and language mechanisms in the brain: data, models and neuroinformatics

Neuroinformatics. 2014 Jan;12(1):209-25. doi: 10.1007/s12021-013-9210-5.


We assess the challenges of studying action and language mechanisms in the brain, both singly and in relation to each other to provide a novel perspective on neuroinformatics, integrating the development of databases for encoding – separately or together – neurocomputational models and empirical data that serve systems and cognitive neuroscience.
