This text is a collection of the leading models of how the human brain encodes for the memory of the items that surround us in everyday life. These models of brain function have been composed from the world's leading experts based upon findings from new investigative techniques.Table of Contents A. Semantic memory: Building Models from Lesions: 1. Semantic refractory access disorders Elizabeth K. Warrington and Sebastian J. Crutch2. The anatomical locus of lesion in category-specific semantic disorders and the format of the underlying conceptual representations Guido GainottiB. Insights from Electrophysiology: 3. Functional modularity of semantic memory revealed by event-related brain potentials John Kounios4. Bilingual semantic memory revisited - ERP and fMRI evidence Sonja A. Kotz and Kerrie E. Elston-GuettlerC. Applications of Models to Understanding Cognitive Dysfunction: 5. Schizophrenia and semantic memory Michal Assaf, Paul Rivkin, Michael Kraut, Vince Calhoun, John Hart and Godfrey PearlsonD. Representations of Nouns and Verbs vs. Objects and Actions: 6. Effects of word imageability on semantic access: neuroimaging studies Jeffrey R. Binder7. The neural systems processing tool and action semantics Uta Noppeney8. The semantic representation of nouns and verbs Kevin Shapiro, Argye E. Hillis and Alfonso CaramazzaE. Critical Role of Subcortical Nuclei in Semantic Functions: 9. Role of the basal ganglia in language and semantics: supporting cast Bruce Crosson, Michelle Benjamin and Ilana LevyF. Conceptual Models of Semantics: 10.
