Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Exactly why I limited my post to Spoken Language.

It is my understanding _f_MRI has disproved the old reductionist axiom of a specific location for a specific process.  Instead there is a heirarchy of processing where specific areas, such as Broca's, are dedicated to doing the predominate amount of the work while relying or shunting various 'subsidary' tasks to other neuological features, areas.  Some of these latter are 'specialists' and some are 'generalists.'

(As always, correction requested.)

A pleasure, indeed.
