The Handbook of the Neuropsychology of Language

This handbook provides a comprehensive review of new developments in the relationship between the brain and language from both basic research and clinical neuroscience perspectives. Contributions from leading figures emphasize state-of-the-art methodologies and their application to the central questions of the field.

Including research that focuses on all parts of language, from syntax and semantics to the neuropsychology of both spoken and written language, the articles explore the variety of methodologies used in this area, including brain imaging, electrophysiology, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. The contributors cover a wide range of issues, including basic and high level linguistic functions, individual differences as well as group studies, and neurologically intact and different clinical populations.

Addressing a wide range of issues using a unique combination of basic science and clinical research, The Handbook of the Neuropsychology of Language offers a complete and up-to-date look at the field.
