(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Using data from brain imaging investigations and studies of patients with brain damage, Massachusetts General Hospital’s Evelina Fedorenko argues that a set of brain regions in the adult human brain – in the frontal and temporal lobes of the left hemisphere -- are specialized for high-level language processing. She further argues that this fronto-temporal network develops as we acquire language knowledge. In the adult brain, this system stores our linguistic knowledge representations and uses these representations to interpret and generate new utterances. Recorded on 02/20/2015.
