  Neurolinguistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Neurolinguistics is the science concerned with the human brain mechanisms underlying the comprehension, production, and abstract knowledge of language, be it spoken, signed, or written.
Historically, the term neurolinguistics has been most closely associated with aphasiology, the study of linguistics deficits, and spared abilities, resulting from specific forms of brain damage.
Although aphasiology is the historical core of neurolinguistics, in recent years the field has broadened considerably, as new technologies have been brought to bear on the matter.

Neurolinguistics is an interdisciplinary endeavor involving linguistics, psychology, neurobiology, speech-language pathology and computer science, to name a few.

Thus, the concern of neuroscience includes such diverse topics as the operation of neurotransmitters, how genes contribute to the embryonic development of the nervous system and to learning, the operation of relatively simpler neural structures of other organisms like marine snails, and the structure and functioning of complex neural circuits in perceiving, remembering, and speaking.
Closely related and overlapping fields, besides cognitive neuroscience, include neurology, psychopharmacology, aphasiology, neurolinguistics, and several others.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are used to relay, amplify and modulate electrical signals between two neurons: the presynaptic neuron and the postsynaptic neuron.

Its subhead was "Novelist Agatha Christie used words that invoked a chemical response in readers and made her books 'literally unputdownable', scientists have said."

The trance theory was the central thrust of the programme.
David Shephard, a Master Trainer in Neurolinguistic Programming, asserted that the level of repetition of key concepts over small spaces (e.g "life", "living", "live", "death" in a couple of paragraphs) consolidated concepts in the reader's mind.

Yet at all times he introduces concepts from the main contributing disciplines - neurology, linguistics, psychology and speech pathology - in such a way that they will be clearly understood by all students, whatever their particular background.
The topics covered have been carefully selected to demonstrate how the more sophisticated modern neurolinguistic approaches have developed from traditional clinical models.

NEUROLINGUISTICS is an art of communication which addresses generic counseling skills and streamlines the communication process—it is a tool which can enable counselors and clients to better understand each other and communicate with each other in more meaningful ways.
The basic concepts will be discussed in lecture format and practiced in small groups: pacing, leading, building rapport and trust, dealing with anger, changing personal histories, reframing, use of fantasy and imagery.
This workshop will review the introductory patterns of Neurolinguistics; provide participants with an opportunity to sharpen their skills and understanding and expose them to further developments in the field.

This model is consistent with a fundamental hypothesis that we developed on the basis of clinical neurolinguistic data: that the meaning of the structural attributes (physical properties) of an object and the meaning of it’s functional attributes (use of an object) are together inseparable from the meaning of the name of an object.

Neurolinguistics of bilingualism and the teaching of languages
Neurolinguists and language pathologists have traditionally concerned themselves with the language system, what some linguists now call implicit linguistic competence, or the grammar, which is what is typically impaired subsequent to lesions in the perisylvian classical language areas of the left cerebral hemisphere.
This language system is also mainly what is taught in second language classes.

The term neurolinguistics refers to the way in which language, including the language of nonverbal communication, influences feelings, attitudes, and behaviors.
As one of the most effective applications of neurolinguistics, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) is considered a form of brief therapy.
NLP refers to the use of language to engage what are usually called the conscious and “unconscious” minds—the rational/logical and the emotional/intuitive aspects of thought, which are often associated with the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

 NEUROLINGUISTICS PROGRAMMING
The study of neurolinguistics programming seeks to make conscious the unconscious processing of information by human beings through careful observation of how individuals make sense of the raw data of experience.
With its scientific inheritance, neurolinguistics programming (NLP) developed as one of many systems that attempted to break out of a narrow view of human behaviour, returning to the individual the possibility of constructing a personal experience and reality.
In the past two decades there has been an upsurge of a great variety of approaches to understanding human experience, most of which were unscientific and non- logical and thus met with resistance from traditional bodies of psychology.
