John Hughlings-Jackson

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a paper by John Hughlings–Jackson, the British neurologist best known for his description of epileptic convulsions. Hughlings–Jackson wrote a series of papers in which he argued that language is not localizable in any specific area of the cerebral cortex. His writings on aphasia, published from the mid-1870s on, represent the first attack on the localizationist school from an antimodular point of view—one that views cognitive deficits as a domain-general “asymbolia”.

Keywords:   Broca's region, John Hughlings–Jackson, neurologist, epileptic convulsions, aphasia
