A relação entre metáforas conceptuais e funções executivas: uma revisão da literatura

Johanna Dagort Billig, Aline Aver Vanin, Gabriela Peretti Wagner

Resumo


Este artigo de revisão integrativa da literatura busca avaliar as evidências recentes acerca da relação entre o desempenho em tarefas ligadas a funções executivas e a compreensão e a produção de metáforas conceptuais. Para tanto, os descritores “metáforas” e “funções executivas”, bem como termos relacionados a este último, foram pesquisados nas bases de dados Pubmed, Scielo e Lilacs. Após seguir critérios de inclusão e de exclusão, foram selecionados sete artigos que trazem debates recentes acerca do tema. A partir dos experimentos descritos nos estudos revisados, verificou-se que há relação entre desempenho em termos de memória de trabalho e de controle inibitório e a compreensão e a produção de metáforas. Ainda, os fatores idade, tamanho de vocabulário e grau de familiaridade com as metáforas são aspectos que modularam as relações entre funcionamento executivo e a compreensão e/ou produção de metáforas.


Palavras-chave


Metáforas conceptuais; Funções executivas; Envelhecimento.
