Syntax in the brain: Linguistic versus neuroanatomical specificity
Journal/Book: Behav Brain Sci. 2000; 23: 40 West 20Th Street, New York, NY 10011-4211, USA. Cambridge Univ Press. 32+.
Abstract: We criticize the lack of neuroanatomical precision in the Grodzinsky target article. We propose a more precise neuroanatomical characterization of syntactic professing and suggest that syntactic procedures are supported by the left frontal operculum in addition to the anterior part of the superior temporal gyrus, which appears to be associated with syntactic knowledge representation.
