In this volume, the communicative and neuropsychological correlates of daily interactions are discussed. The predominant account on explaining the construction of meaning by humans is the inter-relational perspective, that postulates an intentional convergence of meaning arising as a consequence of the active exchanges between people. The neural correlates of communication were illustrated in the light of new empirical results, considering the main topics of: a) language and language development; b) pragmatics and neuropragmatics of communication; c) neurocognition and the cognitive bases of intentions; d) nonverbal communication and emotion contribution to the communicative systems.

New methodological approaches are considered, with particular attention to neuroimaging (such as PET and fMRI) and brain stimulation techniques (as MEG and TMS), as well as their application to the clinical field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book explores the neuropsychological aspects of language with a particular focus on these indirect aspects. ... This book will be a useful tool for neuropsychologists, psychologists, and general practitioners in daily practice. ... The chapters are generally concise, but well organized and easy to understand. ... the references are very current and represent modern understanding of communication. ... Readers will get a good return on the time they invest in this book." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Review Service, December, 2010)
