    Tracing the neurobiological basis of language across brain regions in humans and other primate species, she argues that species-specific brain differences may be at the root of the human capacity for language. Friederici shows which brain regions support the different language processes and, more important, how these brain regions are connected.

      Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. Researchers at Emory University found that reading a novel heightens connections in the parts of the brain that deal with language. The Visual Language of Comics builds on this interdisciplinary scholarship but it also offers new insights and opens up new avenues of inquiry. Recommended for anyone with an interest in comics, language, and what Richard Gregory calls 'the eye-brain system.'” - Kent Worcester, Professor of Political Science, Marymount Manhattan College, USA.

    A comprehensive account of the neurobiological basis of language, arguing that species-specific brain differences may be at the root of the human capacity for language. Language makes us human. It is an intrinsic part of us, although we seldom think about it. Language is also an extremely complex entity with subcomponents responsible for its phonological, syntactic, and . The study of the relationship between language and the brain is called neurolinguistics. Although this is a relatively recent term, the field of study dates back to the nineteenth century. Establishing the location of language in the brain was an early challenge, but one event incidentally provided a Author: George Yule.

How do our brains enable us to speak creatively and build up an understanding of language. This accessible book examines the linguistic and neuro-anatomical underpinnings of language and considers how language skills can systematically break down in individuals with different types of brain damage.

The localizationism approach in this book using the case study method provides ample support for which areas of the brain are associated with the different types of language disorders, but provides almost no insight into the aspects of processing other than timing, or how the brain really permits us to have by:   "Aniruddh Patel's book, Music, Language and the Brain, manages to be both admirably readable and also scholarly.

In the second year of life, the brain organizes the connections for language when the child sees pictures in a book and hears the parent give names for the pictures simultaneously.

Parents and other primary caregivers can help language development at this age by reciting nursery rhymes, songs, and poems throughout the day. It’s worth noting that Music, Language, and the Brain makes a fine addition to our list of 5 must-read books about language.
