Example text

My own theories, which focus on the flow of information , have always been represented in the form of diagrams resembling flow charts. I find diagrams an aid to thinking , but I have come to learn that many people cannot work with them . One reason for this may lie in a distinction between visual thinkers and verbal thinkers . Another , deeper reason relates to whether one wishes to discuss behavior or the mechanisms underlying behavior . It is the latter that the diagrams portray , and behavior may be related to diagrams in complex ways.

Notions of ,'typicality " of types of aphasia and dyslexia seemunimportant when the task of the neuropsychologist is no longer that of identifying the site of a lesion. Thus, it now seemsessentialto specify whether a patient is agrammatic, or whether receptive, productive or both , before conducting experiments on the processingof language. The mere designation of Broca' s aphasia or " nonfluent " or " left anterior lesion" does not enable us to interpret the data. Marshall (1982) and Saffran (1982) have elaborated arguments along these lines.
