Is the Neurological Model in Origin Still Valid?

Post by ZeroZero »

I have been doing some background research into related neurology. I think others might be interested in this article about Brocas and Wernickes Areas. I am still researching and draw no conclusions

The short answer is yes. While new things are being learned about how the brain processes language all the time, the fundamentals remain the same (I think the article above goes too far).

Furthermore, a right-left temporal lobe interaction has been documented in numerous fMRI studies of auditory hallucinations, showing the validity of Jaynes's neurological model for the bicameral mind.

These studies have been summarized in Reflections on the Dawn of Consciousness, The Jaynesian (Vol. 3, Issue 1), as well as listed here:

I am still researching this. The work of Jack Gallant is interesting too, a significant breakthough in semantics IMO
