area area of the brain responsible for a specific task. This involves activation or increase activation of many neurons in one area of the brain during a specific task. Ex. the inferior temporal cortex lights up in facial recognition.
distributed systems processing in the cortex
specific but dispersed regions of the brain concurrently activate during specific challenges.
language by distributed processing
language by modules
is responsible for speech, so damage to this area of the brain results in illogical langauge and an inability to understand others.
damage to the temporal lobe
