Summary This handbook provides a comprehensive review of new developments in the study of the relationship between the brain and language, from the perspectives of both basic research and clinical neuroscience. Includes contributions from an international team of leading figures in brain-language researchFeatures a novel emphasis on state-of-the-art methodologies and their application to the central questions in the brain-language relationshipIncorporates research on all parts of language, from syntax and semantics to spoken and written languageCovers a wide range of issues, including basic level and h
