The Neural Architecture of Grammar

Stephen E. Nadeau

Abstract

Linguists have mapped the topography of language behavior in many languages in intricate detail. To understand how the brain supports language function, however, we must take into account the principles and regularities of neural function. Mechanisms of neurolinguistic function cannot be inferred solely from observations of normal and impaired language. This book develops a neurologically plausible theory of grammatic function. It brings together principles of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and parallel distributed processing and draws on literature on language function from cognitive psycholo ... More

Keywords: language behavior, language function, neural function, neurolinguistic function, impaired language, grammatic function, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, parallel distributed processing, cognitive psychology
