Like any other form of human cognition, the processes targeted in this book are associated with, if not dependent on, specific patterns of brain activity. Of course, as shown throughout the volume, mental aspects of translation and interpreting can be inferred in the absence of neurological evidence. Yet, revealing findings from neuroscience and related disciplines have accumulated over the decades, offering more direct insights on the psychobiological foundations of interlingual reformulation (IR) ?namely, translation and interpreting in their various modalities (García, Mikulan, & Ibáñez, 2016). The present chapter provides a succinct yet comprehensive survey of this interdisciplinary interface, addressing its main methods, topics, findings, implications, and challenges.
