This book assesses current assumptions about how language is acquired,
remembered and retained as impulses in the brain, from the perspective of
neurolinguistics, which is based on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology.

Fred C. C. Peng argues that language is behaviour, which has evolved in
human genetics through time. Like all behaviours, language utilises many
body parts which are controlled by the cortical and subcortical structures
of the brain. Language in the brain is memory-governed, meaning-centred,
and multifaceted. This view is a challenge to conventional neuroscience,
which sees language and speech as separate entities; such a convention is
not consistent with how the brain functions. Dr Peng's study of language in
the brain has wide-reaching implications for the study of language
disorders, neurolinguistics, and psycholinguistics in dealing with
dementia, aphasia, and schizophrenia.

This cutting-edge research monograph presents challenging new insights in
the field of neuroscience to a linguistic audience and will also benefit
neuroscientists. It will be essential reading for academics researching any
aspect of language and the brain.
