NEUROLINGUISTICS


Introduction

The Neurolinguistics research group is concerned with the organization of language in the brain, through the study of aphasia, developmental disorders and normal language acquisition, as well as through experimental approaches to language processing. The focus is on comprehension and production of various aspects of verbs (in impaired language acquisition and in aphasia), phonological processing (in aphasia and dyslexia), sentence processing (in non-brain-damaged and aphasic speakers) and ambiguity resolution (in normal speakers and schizophrenic patients). Our policy is to use a wide range of methods (offline tasks, spontaneous-speech analysis, Event Related Potentials, functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, cross-modal lexical priming, reaction times etc.) in order to understand and describe human language processing through a number of specific populations of subjects and close collaboration between the subgroups.
