Primary Instructor:

This course introduces the neural machinery behind our ability to speak and understand language. Topics discussed include the brain bases of speech perception and reading, lexical processing, syntax, and semantics. We will draw on a range of state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging techniques, as well as the study of neurological and developmental language disorders. Special attention will be given to how theories of linguistic computations and representations can inform, and be informed by, our understanding of the brain.

Course Requirements:

Students will be graded on active class participation, in-class labs, one presentation, and three examinations.

Intended Audience:

The course is open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. No prior exposure to neuroscience or neurolinguistics is assumed.

Class Format:

The class will be discussion-based.
