This handbook provides a comprehensive review of new developments in the study of the relationship between the brain and language, from the perspectives of both basic research and clinical neuroscience. Includes contributions from an international team of leading figures in brain-language research Features a novel emphasis on state-of-the-art methodologies and their application to the central questions in the brain-language relationship Incorporates research on all parts of language, from syntax and semantics to spoken and written language Covers a wide range of issues, including basic level and high level linguistic functions, individual differences, and neurologically intact and different clinical populationsIn our recent study of reading aloud (Graves et al., 2010), such an overlap was found in bilateral PC and AG. These areas were also found in a large-scale meta- analysis (Binder et al., 2009) to be reliably associated with lexical semantic processing. Thus, the ... with BOLD signal in areas implicated in lexical semantic processing suggests that the PC and AG support semantic processing in reading aloud.
