fMRI of Language Systems: Methods and Applications

  • Jeffrey R. Binder


Language functions were among the first to be ascribed a specific location in the human brain1 and have been the subject of intense research for over a century. Many researchers across the globe—working in disciplines as varied as linguistics, psychology, neurology, anthropology, and philosophy—have devoted their careers to understanding language processes and their biological bases.
