Member of the Rede Cpe Augusto Buchweitz, professor at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS), has just published a paper at the Brazilian Journal of Pediatrics about language and brain image technologies.

The goal of the article is to provide an account of language development in the brain using the new information about brain function gleaned from cognitive neuroscience. This account goes beyond describing the association between language and specific brain areas to advocate the possibility of predicting language outcomes using brain-imaging data.

The paper conludes that brain imaging has allowed the identification of neural indices (neuromarkers) that reflect typical and atypical language development and the possibility of predicting risk for language disorders has emerged.
