The Neural Architecture of Grammar

This chapter reviews the literature on grammatic dysfunction in aphasia in relation to the model developed in Chapter 3, in order to (1) test the theoretical model for its ability to account for empirical data; and (2) further elaborate the model. It highlights several recurrent themes: (i) Language is a multicomponent process that engages several domains of knowledge; (ii) specific components of language (and grammatic) function are localized to the neural domains which, by virtue of their connectivity and neural network properties, can uniquely support them; and (iii) the impact of lesions reflects four factors.

Keywords:   grammatic dysfunction, aphasia, language processes, language function, grammatic function, lesions, neural network
