Neurolinguistics is the study of language-brain relations. Its final goal is the comprehension and explanation of the neurological bases for language knowledge and use. More particularly, research in neurolinguistics revolves around issues such as (1) the identification of specific areas in the brain that are involved in (responsible for) adult language behavior; (2) the definition of the relationship between neural structures and processes and memory, attention and intentions; (3) the neurological foundations of language acquisition; (4) the explanation of the brain mechanisms which are responsible for the different symptoms seen in language pathologies and for language recovery when it takes place.
