Abstract

Physiological activities (heart rate and respiratory rate) during a word retrieval task were measured in normal participants. Word frequency demonstrated a significant effect on naming accuracy and latencies but not on physiological activities. These data will serve as a basis for comparison for individuals with a compromised language system.
