Language and Cognition
Deafness,environmental deprivation, and neurological deprivation have a stronginfluence on the acquisition, comprehension, and production oflanguage. The study of the complexity of human brain enables us toexplore the disciplines, which enhance the understanding of howlanguage is acquired and comprehended (Douthwaite,2002).It is worth noting that the environmental deprivation, as well as thedisruption of the brain, leads to language deprivation and deficit.Moreover, the syndromes that are linked to loss of memory and amnesiacause the difficulties with memory and the production of language. Asa result, it becomes difficult for the patient to connect speech tomemory or language (Gutierrez,2017).Thus, deficit can be detected in the Wernicke’s area and Broca’sarea, which are the two essential parts for the interpretation oflanguage and development of speech. Therefore, it is essential tounderstand how deafness, environmental deprivation, and neurologicaldeprivation influence the acquisition, comprehension, and productionof language.
Alzheimeris a disease that has been linked to language distortion and memoryloss (Gutierrez,2017).The disease has also been linked to genetic mutation. Notably, thecondition leads to atrophy in the regions of the brain, especially inthe frontal, temporal brain, and in the hippocampus areas. As such,it causes a dysfunction in the domain to attention, objectrecognition, and acquisition of language (Douthwaite,2002).For example, the connection of Alzheimer to genetic mutation andenvironmental influences causes challenges to patients when it comesto remembering things and acquiring language (Gutierrez,2017).Consequently, the progression of the condition results in thedeficiency of spatial perception, semantic memory, and languageacquisition.
Aninjury to the brain is another element of neuropsychology thatinfluences the comprehension, production, and acquisition of language(Douthwaite,2002).For example, the tumors of the brain greatly distort memory andlanguage when the malign cells invade the tissues of the brain(Gutierrez,2017).The commonest symptoms of this condition include changes in speech,seizures, memory challenges in the long-run, and language distortionamong others (Gutierrez,2017).Nonetheless, the condition can be treated by surgery, chemotherapy,neurobiological examination, MRI and CT scan.
Inconclusion, the acquisition, comprehension, and production oflanguage depend on a myriad of things. These include deafness,environmental deprivation, and neurological deprivation. Such factorscan be influenced by diseases such as Alzheimer, brain injury, amongothers.
