Description

Studies in Neurolinguistics, Volume 4 covers researches on language phenomena. The book discusses the evolution of human communication systems; the neural control of eye movements in acquired and developmental reading disorders; and the structure in a manual communication system developed without a conventional language model. The text also describes aphasic dissolution and language acquisition; VOT distinctions in infants; and disruption of written language in aphasia. The linguistic aspects of lexical retrieval disturbances in the posterior fluent aphasias; the neurologic correlates of anomia; and linguistic perseveration are also encompassed. Neuropsychologists and people involved in the study of neurolinguistics will find the book invaluable.
