A comprehensive account of the neurobiological basis of language, arguing that species-specific brain differences may be at the root of the human capacity for language. Language makes us human. It is an intrinsic part of us, although we seldom think about it. Language is also an extremely complex entity with subcomponents responsible for its phonological, syntactic, and semantic aspects.

In this landmark work, Angela Friederici offers a comprehensive account of these subcomponents and how they are integrated. Tracing the neurobiological basis of language across brain regions in humans and other primate species, she argues that species-specific brain differences may be at the root of the human capacity for language.

Friederici shows which brain regions support the different language processes and, more important, how these brain regions are connected structurally and functionally to make language processes that take place in milliseconds possible. She finds that one particular brain structure a white matter dorsal tract , connecting syntax-relevant brain regions, is present only in the mature human brain and only weakly present in other primate brains.

Friederici describes the basic language functions and their brain basis; the language networks connecting different language-related brain regions; the brain basis of language acquisition during early childhood and when learning a second language, proposing a neurocognitive model of the ontogeny of language; and the evolution of language and underlying neural constraints.

She finds that it is the information exchange between the relevant brain regions, supported by the white matter tract, that is the crucial factor in both language development and evolution. In this masterful summary of decades of work on the neurobiological foundations of language, Friederici develops a comprehensive account of how this most complex of human computational functions is organized, providing a detailed and lucid perspective on the neuroscience of language.

This is essential reading for anyone interested in a theoretically motivated and biologically sophisticated perspective on how language is represented and processed in the brain. No stone has been left unturned in Angela Friederici's masterful all-encompassing scientific analysis of the brain systems that allow human beings to communicate with one another. It is a delightful and enriching read for linguists and neuroscientists alike.

Angela D. Friederici

Angela Friederici born in Cologne , Germany is a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, and is an internationally recognized expert in neuropsychology and linguistics. In she also began studying psychology at the University of Bonn and graduated with a degree in psychology German: Dipl. In she completed her professorial degree Habilitation at the University of Giessen. After a post-doctoral scholarship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology , and work as a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the Paris Descartes University , Angela Friederici was awarded a professorship in cognitive psychology by the Free University of Berlin in Friederici's research centres on how the human brain processes language, examining both first and second language acquisition and use. Her book Language in the Brain was endorsed by Noam Chomsky , in which she stated her current position on the genetics of language study regarding the FOXP2 gene. On page , Friederici states: "It has been proposed that FOXP2 is a gene that plays a major role in speech and language because the mutation of this gene was identified in a family with speech and language problems.
