Development and language


Booth JRJames . Encyclopaedia of Behavioral Neuroscience. 387-95


The purpose of this article is to review what is known about the development of neurocognitive networks for language and reading. The article focuses on age-related changes in orthographic, phonological, semantic, and syntax processing. Particular attention is paid to how these different representational systems are integrated by inferior parietal cortex and how inferior frontal gyrus may modulate these processes.
