Broca's and Wernicke's areas revisited

About This Video

Broca's and Wernicke's areas both represent an important historic step in cognitive neuroscience - demonstrating the localization of function in the human brain. However, over the last century and a half, the interpretation of the specific role that these two areas play has been questioned. Dr. Friederici explains how the modern view of the functional relevance of both areas has changed from the simplistic initial language production vs. language comprehension interpretation.
