Books Info:

Neuroanatomy of Language Regions of the Human Brain free pdf Neuroanatomy of Language Regions of the Human Brain is a richly illustrated, practical reference for any scientist interested in the study of brain and language, providing insight into the pathways for certain aspects of language processing and covering both classic work and modern discoveries. Anatomical research now shows neural pathways linking language comprehension regions to speech regions, and others pathways linking parietal areas involved in writing and reading with those essential for motor control and language production. This book provides a highly illustrated resource focused on the anatomy of language to investigators with diverse backgrounds in language research. Features include: key resource for understanding the basic neuroanatomical pathways implicated in traditional models of language processing- offers dozens of photographs, 3D reconstructions and photomicrographs showing cytoarchitecture of cortical areas involved in language processing- standard series of coronal, sagittal, and horizontal sections identifying the sulci and gyri- and images are accompanied by extensive but approachable descriptions.
