NEUROPSYCHOLOGY AND COGNITION Volume: 20

This highly interdisciplinary project presents new results and the
state of the art of knowledge in the psychology and neurophysiology
of language, reading and dyslexia. It concentrates on basic cognitive
functions of understanding and producing language and disorders within
its spoken and written execution.


The book grew out of the Basic Mechanisms of Language and Language
Disorders conference held in Leipzig in September of 1999. The meeting
was organized by the Psychological Institute of the University of
Leipzig in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute of Cognitive
Neuroscience and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary
Anthropology.
