New edi­to­r­ial in “Brain & Lan­guage”: Re-visiting the elec­tro­phys­i­ol­ogy of language

I had the hon­our of guest-editing a spe­cial issue for the clas­sic jour­nal “Brain and Lan­guage” and have thus con­tributed a brief edi­to­r­ial (now online) to this issue. The spe­cial issue re-visits old themes and new leads in the elec­tro­phys­i­ol­ogy of language.

The full spe­cial issue will appear in early Sep­tem­ber 2015.
