  • Brain is divided into two hemispheres but works as a single entity.
  • Both sides continually communicate via the corpus callosum, except in those with split brains.
the brain s left hemisphere
The Brain’s Left Hemisphere
  • For most people, language functions are in the left hemisphere.
  • For a small percentage of people, language functions are in the right hemisphere.
broca s area
Broca’s Area
  • Located in the frontal lobe and usually in the left hemisphere
  • Responsible for the muscle movements of speech
  • If damaged the person can form the ideas but cannot express them as speech (stroke victims)
wernicke s area
Wernicke’s Area
  • Located in the temporal lobe
  • Involved in language comprehension and expression; our ability to understand what is said to us
