Imaging semantics and syntax

Stefano F. Cappa

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is a highly selective review of functional imaging papers, which have attempted to isolate the neural substrates of semantic and syntactic processing in the human brain. The main emphasis is historical, with a special consideration of the mutual relationship between the traditional, lesion-based approach to the neurology of language and the contributions of the tremendous development of imaging techniques of the last decades.
