The course studies the connections between the structure of the central nervous system and linguistic and communicative functions in relation to other cognitive functions such as sight. Basic concepts in neuroanatomy are discussed and the neuro-psychological correlatives of various linguistic components such as phonetics/phonology, morphology, semantics/pragmatics and syntax are examined. Models of neurocognitive representations and the analysis of speech and writing are introduced, as are the experimental methods which are used to examine these various types of linguistic representations and linguistic analyses. Areas covered include the evolution of language, the asymmetrical function of the hemispheres of the brain, and the affects of brain injury such as aphasia and dementia on the neurophysiological processing of language.
