"...I highly recommend this volume both for beginners approaching neurolinguistics for the first time (it is easy to read, rich in details, but at the same time linear in its development) and for experienced scientists (it is a gold mine of historical, clinical experimental, and methodological information)."
--Reviewed by Claudio Luzzatti in BRAIN AND LANGUAGE
"The Handbook of Neurolinguistics and the whole field as represented here turned out to be (at least in most of the 47 articles) a valuable source of a mature field and of new information...The understanding of grammar in neuroscientific terms will be the most exciting adventure of neurolinguistics for future decades. This excellent book prepares us for that task."
--Niels Birbaumer in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY, 1999, Vol. 44, No. 4
"...this systemic, clear and coprehensive handbook organized in 50 accurate and swift chapters dealing with the most 'classical' neurolinguistic topics and also with the most innovative ones... is all in all highly informative and at the same time pleasant to read, since all the authors (more than 70) have opted for a clear and simple style bereft of extreme, unneeded technicalities. As editors of this notable volume, Brigitte Stemmer and Hary A. Whitaker deserve recognition for having conceived and successfully completed a comprehensive, methodological work which also takes into consideration the most recent experimental, clinical and therapeutical methods appleid int he field of neurolinguistics."
