RogerRoast writes A new study by scientists from MIT identifies areas of the brain used exclusively for the language (PDF), providing a partial answer to a long-standing debate in cognitive science. The study found that there are parts of our brain dedicated to language and only. linguistic After their subjects do the job the original language, which they call a functional localization, they each had only a subset of seven experiments: one on arithmetic exact, two on working memory, cognitive control of three, and one on music, since these are the features the most frequently cited by the machines of neurons with the language. The authors say the results do not mean that all cognitive functions has its own dedicated piece of the cortex, after all, we are able to learn new skills, there must be some parts of the brain that are both high level and functionally flexible.
