The United Arab Emirates University issued the following announcement on May 21.

Dr. Zubaydah Al-Shaibani, a researcher at the UAE University, said in her scientific study, "Language Deficit in Patients with Problems in Different Parts of the Brain", presented scientific findings that show the identification of cognitive problems in patients with some type of Alzheimer's disease, "The study has shown that Alzheimer's patients do not perform language tasks properly, while healthy people perform well, which is clear evidence that this part of the brain is a necessary part of the tasks of language.

The researcher pointed out that one of the ways to study the organization of language in the brain is the use of imaging techniques to try to determine which part of the brain is active in the performance of language activities such as speaking or reading or any activity requires understanding or use of language and this technique is the most common but useful to show the active part In the brain when using language and this does not provide evidence as to whether this active part plays a necessary role in the understanding and treatment of language If Alzheimer's patients have a problem in a specific area of the brain and have a linguistic problem or a problem in understanding the linguistic meaning such as identify a particular type of the word T, this is a clear indication that the affected area of the brain in these patients is necessary to understand a particular type of words.

"The way the brain is formed and its functions is very amazing and we know very little about it. Although cognitive neuroscience has recently developed, what we know about how the brain works, processes information, organizes the language in the brain and to what extent different regions of the brain In very little language processing. "

The study also showed that learning more about language regulation in the brain can help provide more effective treatments for patients with speech difficulties and language comprehension. For example, the results show that there is a close connection between the systems responsible for the actions and systems responsible for language in the brain in the development of a new treatment for speech difficulties, which is very effective in helping patients regain their language abilities and helps surgeons to avoid certain areas of the brain have language functions Mission. When performing surgeries.

The study was published in the journal Cortex, in collaboration with researchers and neurologists at both the University of Cambridge and the Free University of Berlin in Germany.
