Title: Broca's Aphasia, Broca's Area, and Broca's Historic Cases

Summary: This presentation is potentially the first in a series of talks on aphasia, a disorder of language due to injury to the brain. We will begin the series with Broca's aphasia, the most studied of the aphasia types. An individual with Broca's aphasia has kindly agreed to be interviewed in front of the audience, and will teach, first-hand, about the effects of brain injury on the language system. This interview will be followed by a lecture on Broca's aphasia as well as its relationship to Broca's area. In addition, recent MRI scans of the brains of Paul Broca's historic first patients will be presented and discussed in light of current knowledge about this type of aphasia.

No prior knowledge about aphasia is required. All are welcome, from novices to aphasiologists.

Refreshments will be served.
