I notice that after studying mathematics or logic for a long time, I can't speak to people in a fluid manner. Language becomes very functional. What brain areas are involved in this transition? Why?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You'll probably get more attention/answers if you do a little research on this phenomenon yourself, from either end, and add more information. Also, I would note that your title assumes that logical thinking is bad for emotional connection, but your question text is more about logical thinking and language function. Which question are you more interested in? – Krysta Aug 22 '13 at 20:09
Are you looking to find out how the brain transitions from 'logical' to 'emotional' thinking (if it does at all)? – user3554 Aug 24 '13 at 11:24
I actually find the opposite to be true sometimes. – user3433 Aug 25 '13 at 11:08
