Neurocognition of Language is intended to develop into a fundamental textbook on language and the brain. It will be started by the students of a seminar course with the same title, at the Departmenf of Psychology at Goethe University Frankfurt / Germany. At the moment (i.e., July 28 2014), students are working on finishing several chapters for this book, that will be uploaded within the next weeks. We would like to ask other users and the community to not add or change content before this has been achieved! We will delete this message once all chapters from the ongoing course are uploaded.

These chapters are intended as a starting point for the continuous improvement of the book by future participants in the same class, other students and interested colleagues in the field.
