Publication of The Cambridge Handbook of Working Memory and Language
The Cambridge University Press has recently published the book The Cambridge Handbook of Working Memory and Language, which includes the chapter The Cognitive Neuroscience of Working Memory and Language written by Nina Purg, Anka Slana Ozimič and Grega Repovš. The book is a result of the collaboration of many established academics and scientists from around the world who work in the field of working memory and language.
The book provides an overview of the cutting-edge research on the role of working memory in language learning, processing and storage of linguistic information, and language disorders. After an introductory chapter written by Alan Baddeley, a pioneer in the field of working memory, the book addresses specific topics that cover broader thematic areas of the relationship between working memory and language based on theoretical models and measures, in first language comprehension and production, in the mechanisms of bilingual processing, and finally, in language disorders and related health interventions.
The book is available in printed and electronic form. Additional information can be found on the Cambridge University Press website.
