Abstract: The present textbook is one of the few recent textbooks in the area of neurolinguistics and will be welcomed by teachers of neurolinguistic courses as well as researchers interested in the topic. Neurolinguistics is a huge area, and the boundaries between psycho- and neurolinguistics are not sharp. Often the term neurolinguistics is used to refer to research involving neuropsychological patients suffering from some sort of language disorder or impairment. Also, the term neuro- rather than psycholinguistics is used when referring to research that makes use of some sort of brain imaging technique, ranging from event-related brain potentials (ERP) to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). This book mainly reviews the state-of-the-art in research on language disorders, in particular aphasia, sometimes involving neuroimaging methodologies, but neuroimaging of language processing in healthy subjects is not the main focus.
