Introduction Classical attempts to capture the nature of aphasia have been “corticocentric” in identifying language processes. Recent conceptual and technical advances force us to reconsider the neural bases of language. In this work we aim to review several studies of damaged subcortical structures (thalamus and basal ganglia) that show large effe...

... Assume also that Agree/Search is implemented via cross-cortical evoked γ due to the role of this band in attention and perceptual ''feature binding'' (Bartos et al., 2007;Sohal et al., 2009) and the distributed nature of the inter-modular representations Agree/Search operates over (see Figure 2 for predictions about rhythmic disruptions for agreement relations). Overall, we find this model compatible with recent findings that damage to the basal ganglia and thalamus can lead to various forms of aphasia and other linguistic deficits (Alamri et al., 2015); in turn contributing to an emerging rejection of the classical Wernicke-Lichtheim-Geschwind approach to neurolinguistics (Hagoort, 2014). This is why we expect it to contribute as well to a better understanding of language deficits in ASD. ...
