This chapter presents a paper published by Ludwig Lichtheim in 1885. The paper on aphasia contained diagrams of the cerebral representation of language processing. All of these schema and diagrams were inspired by Wernicke's ideas and hypotheses about how the brain has nodes and connections, and about how these can be injured to produce the various types of aphasia. These diagrams are still widely used in behavioral neurology and aphasia research.
