Brain and Language

PSY 575

The relationship of brain and language is explored through a variety of methodologies and approaches, including studies of first and second language acquisition across cultures, multilingualism, language disorders. Neuroimaging studies (including electrophysiological and hemodynamic techniques) are central to understanding current neurobiological, neurophysiological and neurolinguistic perspectives of representation of language(s) in the brain. Readings and case studies focus on the latest theoretical contributions to the field. IRB certification and data collection are required.
