Specific language areas of the brain. Many cortical (and non-cortical!) regions are involved in language processing. The primary language pathway begins in Wernicke’s area (posterior temporal lobe), which receives information from the auditory and visual cortices and assigns meaning (= language comprehension). The arcuate fasciculus connects Wernicke’s area to Broca’s area (posterior inferior frontal lobe). Broca’s area is responsible for the production of meaningful language. Output from Broca’s area goes to motor cortex for initiation of the complex muscle movements necessary for speech.
