On this episode, we explore one of our most important and amazing human tools. What does neuroscience tell us about how language works, and how we acquire it? Can intensive rehab help those who have lost their ability to express themselves after stroke? We’ll also hear about plant ‘language,’ voice donation, and the failed effort to create a universal language from scratch.
