Embodied theories claim that semantic representations are
grounded in sensorimotor systems, but the contribution of
sensorimotor brain areas in representing meaning is still
controversial. One current debate is whether activity in
sensorimotor areas during language comprehension is automatic.
Numerous neuroimaging studies reveal activity in perception and
action areas during semantic processing that is automatic and
independent of context, but increasing findings show that
involvement of sensorimotor areas and the connectivity between
word-form areas and sensorimotor areas can be modulated by
contextual information. "Context Effects on Embodied Representation
of Language Concepts "focuses on these findings and discusses the
influences from word, phrase, and sentential contexts that
