Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The question of how language or languages are represented in the human brain is one of the more challenging problems of contemporary neuroscience and neurolinguistics. The last ten years have been an especially fruitful period for more profound research results from the disciplines of theoretical linguistics and neuroscience as the field of brain and language has emerged as an important subdiscipline of the cognitive neurosciences. However, many controversies and unanswered questions remain for the field. The current special issue is conceived to facilitate a deeper discussion of the issues that are central to advancing the study of language and brain, provide a forum for important theoretical and experimental contributions to the field, revisit central controversies, and offer new data and analysis obtained from studies incorporating a range of theoretical and empirical issues, imaging techniques, questions of multilingualism, language acquisition studies and perspectives on language across the life cycle.
