Language shares neural prerequisites with non-verbal capacities

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (6):679-680 (2003)
Based on neuropsychological evidence of nonverbal impairment accompanying aphasia, I propose that the neural prerequisites for language acquisition are shared with a range of nonverbal capacities. Their commonality concerns the ability to recognize a limited number of finite elements in manifold perceptual entities and to combine them for constructing manifold entities.
