Language Conference (July, 9-11, 2001, Groningen, The

synthesis of aphasiological, computational, and neuroimaging
approaches has advanced our understanding of the neurological
basis of language.

Language. All accepted abstracts will be included; selected
papers will appear as full articles after an additional review
