Changes in mental processes involved in word production and their time-course are likely to occur across the lifespan. Previous studies have shown functional and temporal differences in speech planning processes among school-age children and adults in picture-naming tasks (Laganaro et al., 2015), with, in particular, different neural networks in the time window associated to lexicalsemantic encoding between 10- to 12-year-old children and young adults. Our aim is to investigate when and how the youngsters develop an adult-like activation in word production. More specifically, we either expect adolescents to show more adult-like EEG/ERP activities where younger children show the involvement of different neural networks as compared to adults, or adolescents to still be a transitional age group between children and adults...
