Complex language acquisition is feasible despite severe psychological handicap. this is often the belief reached on the finish of a radical examine of the language of a Down syndrome grownup lady, displaying nearly general expressive and receptive grammar. this situation, awarded during this e-book, is in comparison to a small variety of different remarkable situations of language improvement in psychological retardation.

Evidence from structural neuroimaging studies (MRI) is consistent with these as possible sources. , Gauger, Lombardino, & Leonard, 1997; Jernigan, Hesselink, Sowell, & Tallal, 1991; Plante, Swisher, Vance, & Rapcsak, 1991). In summary, neurobiological studies suggest that deﬁcits in left hemisphere processing underlie poor morphosyntactic processing. Although these studies do not deﬁnitively demonstrate the neural source of the deﬁcit, they provide sufﬁcient evidence to narrow the possible candidate structures.
Finally, some adult ERP components may be absent or attenuated in children’s responses and others enlarged, particularly to stimuli presented at fast rates. 2). , 2000). These maturational changes in brain neurobiology will affect processing of speech and language stimuli. One challenge in developmental neurobiology is to tease apart which changes are due to general maturation and which are related to learning a speciﬁc language; in other words, what aspects of development are related to environmental input versus genetic instruction.
N1: Ponton, Eggermont, Kwong, & Don, 2000; MMN: Shafer, Morr, Kreuzer, & Kurtzberg, 2000; N400: Coch, Maron, Wolf, & Holcomb, 2002; Friedrich & Friederici, 2004; eLAN, LAN: Hahne, Eckstein, & Friederici, 2004). They also show larger-amplitude ERP components, probably reﬂecting a greater abundance of neurons and synapses, less speciﬁcity in ﬁring, and poorer insulation of the axons by myelin. Finally, some adult ERP components may be absent or attenuated in children’s responses and others enlarged, particularly to stimuli presented at fast rates.
