The neurobiological foundations of language
Language is a unique human cognitive ability that allows us to communicate ideas and thoughts, and in no other species do we find a communication syst

Symbiosis, Parasitism and Bilingual Cognitive Control: A Neuroemergentist Perspective
- PsychologyFront. Psychol.
This review poses that bilingualism and cognitive control, as examined through the Neuroemergentist framework, are interwoven through development and involve the non-linear growth of cognitive processing encompassing brain areas that combine and recombine, in symbiotic and parasitic ways, in order to handle more complex types of processing.

Cognitive control, cognitive reserve, and memory in the aging bilingual brain
- Psychology, BiologyFront. Psychol.
A new focus on bilingual memory is proposed as an avenue to explore the relationship between executive control and cognitive reserve and suggest an account that links cognitive control, cognitive reserve, and brain reserve in bilingual aging and memory.

The Biological Foundations of Language
The coming of language occurs at about the same age in every healthy child throughout the world, strongly supporting the concept that genetically determined processes of maturation, rather than environs-based processes, are responsible for this development.

EARLY COGNITION, COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE IN CHILDREN WITH FOCAL BRAIN INJURY
- PsychologyDevelopmental medicine and child neurology
A ‘cognitive infrastructure’ or ‘threshold’ model of early language development is proposed, in which the appearance of speech depends on the presence of certain cognitive prerequisites; once those are in place, some degree of dissociation between linguistic and cognitive development can be observed.

Evidence for neocortical immaturity is provided by studies of the development of opiatergic and cholinergic receptors, of the maturation of metabolic activity, and of the connectivity between inferior temporal areas TE and TEO and cortical and subcortical structures, which indicate greater compensatory potential after Neonatal cortical than after neonatal medial temporal removals.

It is revealed that EF deficits are consistently found in both ADHD and autism but not in CD (without ADHD) or in TS, and both the severity and profile of EF deficits appears to differ across ADHD and Autism.
The role of the left and right hemispheres in recovery from aphasia
Abstract The respective contributions of the left and right cerebral hemispheres in the recovery from aphasia are a matter of debate. This paper is devoted to a review of several different sources of…
