Title: Language in the Brain
Written By: Helmut Schnelle
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521515498
Description:

Linguistics, neurocognition, and phenomenological psychology are
fundamentally different fields of research. Helmut Schnelle provides an
interdisciplinary understanding of a new integrated field in which
linguists can be competent in neurocognition and neuroscientists in
structure linguistics. Consequently the first part of the book is a
systematic introduction to the function of the form and meaning-organising
brain component - with the essential core elements being perceptions,
actions, attention, emotion and feeling. Their descriptions provide
foundations for experiences based on semantics and pragmatics. The second
part is addressed to non-linguists and presents the structural foundations
of currently established linguistic frameworks. This book should be serious
reading for anyone interested in a comprehensive understanding of language,
in which evolution, functional organisation and hierarchies are explained
by reference to brain architecture and dynamics.

- Bridges the gap between neuroscience and principles of linguistics, and
provides an interdisciplinary approach to perspectives of language form, use
and meaning
- Divided into two parts, allowing a basic and more comprehensive view for
the beginner and advanced reader
- Fully illustrated, with comprehensive descriptions to help understanding of
the models of translating formalist linguistic structure descriptions into
plausible neural models
