Debate topic: Neurobiological vs. cog-linguistic approaches to rehabilitation of aphasia. Speakers: Steve Small vs. David Caplan
How about a debate on the nature of concept representations in the brain? Alfonso Caramazza could argue for concepts as segregated into non-decomposable evolutionarily-relevant categories. Larry Barsalou could argue for concepts as being grounded in sensory-motor systems with binding of features occurring in association cortices. I may not have their exact positions right, but I think they differ roughly along those lines.
