Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging technique has been employed to study the expression and interpretation of negation in Hindi language. Hindi is subject-object-verb (SOV) language and has a long tradition of grammar and literature. To account the effect of semantic and syntactic features on neural network the study was undertaken where native Hindi reader performed the sentence judgment task (target-Probe) in affirmative and negative sentences. The result shows involvement of common as well as distinct regions for affirmative and negative sentences.
