Remarques sur le siège de la faculté du langage articulé, suivie d’une observation d’aphémie (perte de la parole).Bull. Soc. anat., Paris, 36, 330-57, 1861.
Broca claimed the third left frontal convolution of the brain as the center of articulate speech – a point now disputed. He was first to trephine for a cerebral abscess diagnosed by this theory of localization of function. He introduced term “aphemia” (“motor aphasia”, “Broca’s aphasia”). English translation in von Bonin. Some papers on the cerebral cortex, Springfield: Charles C Thomas, 1960. See No. 4619
