Summary
In this program, Dr. Jonathan Miller investigates both the predictable and the unexpected effects of damage to Broca's and Wernicke's areas on patients' abilities to communicate verbally and through sign language. In his efforts to expose the physiological roots of language expression, Dr. Miller traces the evolution of brain research, from the scientific blind alley of phrenology to the promising field of neurolinguistics. The essentially arbitrary yet formalized nature of words, the Chomskyan distinction between competence and performance, and John Hughlings Jackson's novel theory on aphasia are also considered
