For example, a patient may say /pun/ instead of /spun/. In addition, transpositions of sounds can occur, e.g tevilision for television. (Brookshire, 1997).

the designation for the hippocampus, the amygdala, the septal nuclei, portions of the hypothalamus especially the mammillary bodies, the anterior thalamic nuclei, the cingulate gyrus, and the pathways that connect these structures. The components of the limbic system are essential for normal expression of emotion, motivated behaviour, and memory. Psychopharmacological interventions are often aimed at reducing over-excitability of these structures.

A group of structures located near the inner portion of the brain, beneath the cortex. This system is responsible for most of the body's emotional information, as well making memories. It also influences the endocrine system. Two of the brain's largest structures, the hippocampus and the amygdala, are responsible for memories, whereas the thalamus is considered the switchboard, transmitting information to specific areas of the brain.
