Schumann, John H.
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v21 p23-42 2001
Proposes that the confluence of stimulus appraisal and social cognition that is effected by the neural system in the brain has important implications for language and learning theories. Describes the anatomy and functions of this neural system and discusses how it may operate in motivation for second language acquisition and how in conjunction with some additional circuits may operate in generating mental and motor activity or learning generally.
