Abstract

Based on histopathological investigation of the brain of exceptionally talented persons Sánta found increased volume of parietal association areas with abundance of cells. He supposed that the angular gyrus may be a "memory field". In his publication Genius and inheritance he expressed that: "Talent is a child of the present, but the genius is born for eternity." He discussed the localization of sensory and motor amnestic aphasia analysing the signs of patient with brain tumor and called attention to concomittant psychological symptoms. He found crossed aphasia in twice as many lefthanded than righthanded persons. This may explain the recent observations that the restitution of aphasia is predetermined; speech ability of ambidexterous or latent lefthanded persons improve bettor. He analysed the topography of emotional and voluntary facial palsy. The currently accepted hierarchical concept of mental and speech ability can be derived from the ouevre of Sántha and his predecessors. Sántha can be honoured as a forerunner of the modern theories of aphasia locatization.
