Stefano F. Cappa, Daniela Perani

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the relationship between Broca's area and lexicalsemantic processing. The first section reviews the aphasiological evidence for lexical and/or semantic impairment in the syndrome of Broca's aphasia. The second section considers the relationship between damage to Broca's area and neighboring structures and specific aspects of linguistic impairment in the syndrome, including disorders of lexical/semantic processing. Finally, the chapter reviews the contribution of functional imaging to the issue of the role of Broca's area in lexical/semantic processing.
