Humans process language with their neurons. Memory in neurons is supported by neural firing, and short and long-term synaptic weight change; the emergent behaviour of neurons, synchronous firing and cell assembly dynamics, is also a form of memory. As the language signal moves to later stages, it is processed with different mechanisms that are slower but more persistent.
