Broca'S Area

Broca's area or the Broca area /broʊˈkɑː/ or /ˈbroʊkə/ is a region in the frontal lobe of one hemisphere (usually the left) of the hominid brain with functions linked to speech production.The production of language has been linked to the Broca's area since Pierre Paul Broca reported impairments in two patients. They had lost the ability to speak after injury to the posterior inferior frontal gyrus of the brain. Since then, the approximate region he identified has become known as Broca's area, and the deficit in language production as Broca's aphasia.

    During the Civil War, on May 12, 1863, a young Martha stood on her front porch as a battle raged nearby. A bullet passed through the scrotum of a soldier, travelled at least 100 feet more, then hit the reproductive tract of Martha, who nine months later gave birth to a baby boy. Incredible isn’t it? Almost impossible. Well, it is. It never happened. I even made the name up.
