Title: Language and the Brain
Written By: Loraine K. Obler

Series Title: Cambridge Approaches to Linguistics
Description:

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. By studying children with language disorders, adults with
right-hemisphere brain damage, demented patients and people with reading
problems, the authors provide an understanding of how language is organised
in the brain.
