37 Modulatory effects of negation Modulatory effects of negation
38 Modulatory effects of negation SENTENTIAL NEGATION Priming effects are reduced for negated vs. non-negated nouns, suggesting that negation affects the semantic activation level of the negated propositions (MacDonald & Just, 1989).

Sentential negation improves concurrent motor performance. J. Neurophysiol. 109(7): (2013).
46 To sum up
47 Semantic memory for an object is encoded through the dominant channel of experience with concurrent inhibition of the non-dominant grounded systems. When processing domain-specific linguistic utterances, depending on the depth of lexical-semantic access and on the level of semantic experience, the corresponding grounded systems may be functionally integrated with perisylvian language regions. In the case of negative sentences, the interactions between perisylvian language regions and grounded systems are reduced, leaving neural resources more free for concurrent motor performance.
