Brain Mechanisms Underlying Speech and Language; Conference Proceedings (Princeton, New Jersey, November 9-12, 1965).
Darley, Frederic L., Ed.
The conference proceedings of scientists specializing in language processes and neurophysiological mechanisms are reported to stimulate a cross-over of interest and research in the central brain phenomena (reception, understanding, retention, integration, formulation, and expression) as they relate to speech and language. Eighteen research reports cover animal and dolphin vocalization, information processing (input and output), cross modal effects on language, cerebral connectionism, language properties and behavior, brain hemispheres, brain mechanisms (suggested by temporal and parietal lobe studies and neurophysiology), cerebral dominance, and lacunae research. Discussions follow each report. A 420-item reference list and speaker and topic indexes are provided. (DP)
