Neurolinguistics and aphasia Research groups

The Neurolinguistics and Aphasia group focuses on the study of language comprehension, production and learning across a wide spectrum of populations from adult monolingual and bilingual speakers to language-impaired brain-damaged patients.

By using a variety of experimental methods (electrophysiology, eye tracking and behavioral paradigms), we investigate how basic syntactic structures and relations are built online, track their time course and electrophysiological correlates, and determine how these change at different stages of L2 learning or in the presence of language impairment.

Moreover, we develop standardized aphasia assessment tools that enable us to study how the breakdown of these core mechanisms can be reliably detected and treated in patients with brain damage.
