Say what you see in this picture out loud - "The cat ran over the car." A.I. is helping researchers unlock how your brain knows that sentence is different than - "The car ran over the cat."

New research involving neuroimaging and A.I., describes the complex network within the brain that comprehends the meaning of a spoken sentence.
