All time best historical models of language and brain
If you were going to put together a highlight reel of the best, most influential models of language and brain, what would they be? You gotta start with the single-node model of Broca, then Wernicke's two-node, dual stream "connectionist" model. But what then? Lichtheim I suppose (although I think he ended up doing more harm than good despite his good intentions). Any Freud fans? Not very influential, though. Geschwind for sure. Anything in between?
