Conclusions

In closely examining Broca's area, several diverse literatures are available. Historical, electrical stimulation, clinical, and functional imaging studies contribute distinctive and sometimes seemingly contradictory viewpoints on the placement and function of Broca's original seat of articulate language. The way to reach firmer conclusions is to continue to find the discrepancies. In the future, more subdivisions may be created in Broca's area, and further extensions may be made into surrounding areas, for example, higher into BA 46 in order to relate higher order memory functions to current language functions.
