In this masterful summary of decades of work on the neurobiological foundations of language, Friederici develops a comprehensive account of how this most complex of human computational functions is organized, providing a detailed and lucid perspective on the neuroscience of language. This is essential reading for anyone interested in a theoretically motivated and biologically sophisticated perspective on how language is represented and processed in the brain.(David Poeppel, Professor of Psychology and Neural Science, New York University; Scientific Member and Director, Neuroscience Department, Max Planck Institute of Empirical Aesthetics)
No stone has been left unturned in Angela Friederici's masterful all-encompassing scientific analysis of the brain systems that allow human beings to communicate with one another. It is a delightful and enriching read for linguists and neuroscientists alike.(Cathy J. Price, Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London)
