The "tip of the tongue" state is something most people have experienced when recalling proper names. Some brain damaged individuals can only name countries, others are normal except they can't name fruit and vegetables. "The Cognitive Psychology of Proper Names" uses evidence from cognitive psychology and neuropsychology to explore why this should be so.
Tim Valentine, Tim Brennen and Serge Bredart examine current thinking on the creation and retrieval of proper names. They draw on evidence from speech production, face recognition and word recognition to develop a new model of the production and recognition of people's names. This book will appeal to researchers and students interested in the cognitive/psychological and neurpsychological aspects of picture naming, face recognition, speech production and word recognition.
