Cognitive control is the broad ability to regulate behavior in accordance with the current context. While it is typically considered outside the purview of language and disorders therein, several recent findings suggest intriguing links. I will present behavioral, neuroimaging, and neuropsychological results from my lab that shed light on the different ways in which cognitive control can impact sentence comprehension in healthy adults as well as people with aphasia. A more precise understanding of the relevance of cognitive control for language has implications for how we characterize and treat language disorders.
