Speak up! Mini Cases in Language
Miller, Antoinette R.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v39 n4 p64-67 Mar 2010
This is a series of short cases useful for a variety of courses, including physiological psychology, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, cognitive science, and cognitive neuropsychology/neuroscience. Each of these cases depicts a breakdown in language that may be traced to damage in an area or areas that are related to language processing, and each is based on an actual case or cases reported in the literature. These cases were originally written for use in a problem-based learning format, but they may also be used as individual assignments. Please note: These cases focus on disruptions of spoken communication and reading. Additional disruptions of writing may also occur with damage to the brain areas associated with language (particularly Broca's area). (Contains 1 figure, 1 note, 4 resources, and 4 online resources.)
