Programme

This class of Neurosciences of Communication and Language will explore the neural and cognitive correlates of communication and language processing. After introducing the notion of communicative competence (both verbal and non-verbal), the focus will be shifted to the analysis of the structural and cognitive characteristics of human language highlighting the interactions among different cognitive systems (e.g., perception, memory, attention, executive functions) and language. Lastly, the most recent cognitive models of langauge production and comprehension will be discussed in light of evidence coming from neuroimaging studies of patients with brain injuries and healthy individuals.
