The quantity specializes in the neuropsychological correlates of verbal exchange in day-by-day interactions. The most important account in explaining the development of that means through people is the inter-relational point of view, which postulates an intentional convergence of which means bobbing up on account of the lively exchanges among humans. The neural correlates of conversation are defined at the foundation of recent empirical effects, with specific specialize in language and language improvement, pragmatics and neuropragmatics of verbal exchange, neurocognition and the cognitive bases of intentions, nonverbal communique and emotion contribution to communicative platforms. moreover, new methodological ways are defined, equivalent to neuroimaging (PET and fMRI), and mind stimulation recommendations (MEG and TMS), in addition to their functions in study and within the scientific field.

By contrast, anti-localist models reject a modular approach and instead favor a correspondence between function and underlying anatomic structure via complex networks and involving several brain areas [5]. Modern cognitive neuropsychology views the correspondence between cognitive modules and neural structures in terms of brain networks, thus involving a plurality of brain regions. These models accept the polyfunctionality of brain areas, according to which the same neural circuit can be implicated in a plurality of cognitive functions, thus operating in several cognitive processes but potentially in different roles.

The perceptive hypothesis suggests that the right hemisphere is favored in the elaboration of acoustic stimuli; a functional hypothesis, on the other hand, assumes that emotional cues without semiotic value are the specific competence of the right hemisphere (see [90] for a review). The left hemisphere, however, is involved in the elaboration of vocal affective components. Right hemispheric dominance is limited to non-verbal affective components, distinct from emotional semantic ones, that is, the ability to label emotions and define their meaning as a function of a specific context.
