Central Nervous System

1 out of 3

Broca's area is involved in: (AIPG 2007)

A Word formation

B Word interpretation

C Word comprehension

D Word understanding

Ans. A Word formation
  1. An essential function of this area is to transform neural word representations into their articulatory sequences so that the words can be uttered in the form of spoken language.
  2. The sequencing function of Broca's area also appears to involve the ordering of words into sentences that contain a meaning ­appropriate syntax (grammar).
  3. Wernicke's and Broca's areas are interconnected with each other and with additional perisylvian, temporal, prefrontal, and posterior parietal regions, making up a neural network subserving the various aspects of language function.
  4. Wernicke's area situated at the posterior end of superior temporal gyrus is concerned with comprehension of auditory and visual information i.e

a. Word interpretation. b. Non fluent speech

c. Good comprehension d. Poor repetition
