This research seminar focuses on reviewing and discussing recent progress in the cognitive neuroscience of language. It has three main strands. 1) External speakers will set the stage for focused discussions. 2) In depth reviews of research publications will provide a insight into recent progress in specific research areas. 3) Participants and researchers at the FU Berlin's Brain Language Laboratory will present their own research plans and aspects of their ongoing research to open discussion of future research perspectives.
Hot topics that may form the seminar's foci in the new semester include the neural manifestations of linguistic-pragmatic knowledge and processing, the neuroanatomy of the 'language brain', and putative neurophysiological indexes of language understanding.
