Brocas Area

Named for the French surgeon and anthropologist, Paul Broca, who found this area of the brain, Broca’s Area is located in the frontal lobe of the brain and acts as the speech center. Although there are other areas of the brain that also influence speech (Wernicke’s Area and the motor cortex), Broca’s Area is considered the central component.
