Language and the Brain
Loraine Obler, City University of New York Graduate School
Kris Gjerlow, Gamut Logistics, New York

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.
