Higher Level Language Processes in the Brain is a groundbreaking book that explains how behavior research, computational models, and brain imaging results can be unified in the study of human comprehension. The volume illustrates the most comprehensive and newest findings on the topic. Each section of the book nurtures the theoretical and practical integration of behavioral, computational, and brain imaging studies along a different avenue, and each is supplementary. Readers with limited background knowledge on the methods are presented with an easy-to-read, state of-the-art exposition that is conceptualized and written from a well-established point of view.

Higher Level Language Processes in the Brain is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate cognitive science students, as well as researchers and practitioners who seek to learn and apply scientific knowledge about human comprehension to reading analysis.
