The Temporal Lobe, Volume 187 covers the exponential growth of studies on the relationships between brain and language/cognition, many of which involved the temporal lobe. This volume summarizes research on the anatomy and function of the temporal lobe under both normal and pathological conditions. In addition, it discusses the interactions of the temporal lobe with other brain structures. The book highlights the role of the temporal lobe in language processing as well as vision, object, face recognition and processing. The book also discusses the temporal lobe's role in reading, speech and the processing of color, music, action and memory.

Temporal lobe disorders, assessments and treatments are also covered, including encephalitis, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, Korsakov’s syndrome, and more.
