Paul Broca and the Origins of Language in the Brain
Undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing professionals and clinicians in psychology, neurolinguistics, cognitive psychology, communication science and disorders, neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychiatry, nursing and health-related professions, and philosophy of science will be interested in this book. It both honors the life and work of Pierre-Paul Broca, and in doing so, also honors the many French brains that paved the way for the development of the neurosciences.
