It is

It is here that plans and motor patterns for expressing individual words or even short phrases are initiated and executed. This area also works in close association with Wernickes language comprehension center in the temporal association cortex, as we discuss more fully later in the chapter. An especially interesting discovery is the following: When a person has already learned one language and then learns a new language, the area in the brain where the new language is stored is slightly removed from the storage area for the first language. If both languages are learned simultaneously, they are stored together in the same area of the brain. Limbic Association Area. Figures and show still another association area called the limbic association area. This area is found in the anterior pole of the temporal lobe, in the ventral portion of the frontal lobe, and in the cingulate gyrus lying deep in the longitudinal fissure on the midsurface of each cerebral hemisphere. It is concerned primarily with behavior, emotions, and motivation. We will learn in Chapter that the limbic cortex is part of a much more extensive system, the limbic system, that includes a complex set of neuronal structures in the midbasal regions of the brain. This limbic system provides most of the emotional drives for activating other areas of the brain and even provides motivational drive for the process of learning itself. Area for Recognition of Faces An interesting type of brain abnormality called prosophenosia is inability to recognize faces.
