Neurolinguistics Lab

The Neurolinguistics Lab studies how the brain supports language, with an emphasis on the breakdown of language functions after brain damage in adults, for example after stroke. Through the investigation of the neural substrates of language production and processing in healthy speakers and speakers with aphasia, we aim to learn more about the nature of language and linguistic representations, about the extent to which language functions are autonomous from or interactive with other cognitive domains, but also about the nature of language disorders and the role of neural plasticity in recovery from aphasia. The overall aim of the lab is to contribute to new approaches to aphasia rehabilitation, based on the combination of behavioral intervention and neurophysiological stimulation of relevant brain functions. We also have an interest in functional communication in speakers with aphasia, and in the use of creative arts, in particular drama, to help improve communication skills and quality of life!
