Guide to the book -- Neuronal structure and function -- From classic aphasia research to modern neuroimaging -- Words in the brain -- Explaining neuropsychological double dissociations -- Regulation, overlap, and web tails -- Neural algorithms and neural networks -- Basic syntax -- Synfire chains as the basis of serial order in the brain -- Sequence detectors -- Neuronal grammar -- Neuronal grammar and algorithms -- Basic bits of neuronal grammar -- Web response to a sentence -- Refining neuronal grammar -- Multiple reverberation for resolving lexical ambiguity -- Multiple reverberations and multiple center embeddings -- Neurophysiology of syntax -- Linguistics and the brain.

"This self-contained text and reference puts forth the first explanatory theory of language at the level of neuronal circuits that is well grounded in empirical research while also addressing questions about language structure and the rules so characteristic of human communication. The Neuroscience of Language bridges the gap between linguistics and brain science, appealing to students and researchers in neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, and computational modeling."--Jacket.
