Agrammatism, syntactic theory, and the lexicon: Broca's area and the development of linguistic ability in the human brain
Graduate studies at Western
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):41-42 (2000)
|Abstract||Grodzinsky's Tree-Pruning Hypothesis can be extended to explain agrammatic comprehension disorders. Although agrammatism is evidence for syntactic modularity, there is no evidence for its anatomical modularity or for its localization in the frontal lobe. Agrammatism results from diffuse left hemisphere damage – allowing the emergence of the limited right hemisphere linguistic competence – rather than from damage to an anatomic module in the left hemisphere.|
