Syntax in the brain: Linguistic versus neuroanatomical specificity

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):32-33 (2000)
Abstract
We criticize the lack of neuroanatomical precision in the Grodzinsky target article. We propose a more precise neuroanatomical characterization of syntactic processing and suggest that syntactic procedures are supported by the left frontal operculum in addition to the anterior part of the superior temporal gyrus, which appears to be associated with syntactic knowledge representation.
