  • In the majority of the adult population, the language network typically involves the left inferior frontal and the bilateral temporal areas of the brain, with two neural pathways (ventral and dorsal) connecting them. The investigation of the neural basis of language development provides a unique window into the origins of this brain specialization, allowing us to tease apart the contributions of our genetic endowment, experience, and their interactions. The existing findings suggest that paralleling perceptual attunement to the native language at the behavioral level, the neural correlates of speech and language processing show increasing specialization and lateralization during the first years of life.

    The recent advancement of brain-imaging techniques in the last decades has dramatically increased the understanding of the neural correlates of ...
