Much of the groundbreaking work in many fields is now occurring at the
intersection of traditional academic disciplines. This development is
well demonstrated in this important and unique volume, which offers a
multidisciplinary view of current findings and cutting-edge issues
involving the relationship between mind, brain, and language.

Marie T. Banich and Molly Mack have edited a collection of eleven
invited chapters from top researchers (and have contributed two of
their own chapters) to create a volume organized around five major
topics: language emergence, influence, and development; models of
language and language processing; the neurological bases of language;
language disruption and loss; and dual-language systems. Topics range
from the evolution of language and child-language acquisition to brain
imaging and the "bilingual brain". Because of its depth and breadth,
this book is appropriate both as a textbook in a variety of
undergraduate and graduate-level courses and as a valuable resource
for researchers and scholars interested in further understanding the
background of and current developments in our understanding of the
mind/brain/language relationship.
