The study of language and the brain is heavily dependent on work of the early aphasiologists, and those wanting to be acquainted with the discipline will come across frequent references to these classic authors. This collection brings together seminal publications by 19th- and 20th-century neurologists concerned with the relationship between language and the brain. The book includes biographical sketches of the authors discussed, and bibliographies of their relevant publications.
