Broca’s area handles syntax, while Wernicke’s area handles the semantic side of language processing. Subjects with damage to the latter can speak in syntactically fluent jargon-filled sentences (fluent aphasia) – and they can’t even tell their utterances don’t make sense, because they can’t even make sense of the words leaving their own mouth!

It seems like GPT2 : Broca’s area :: ??? : Wernicke’s area. Are there any cog psych/AI theories on this?
