Prof. Michal Ben-Shachar

How can we use brain imaging methods to test the validity of theoretical linguistic concepts? In this seminar we will examine the current understanding of language processing in the brain, particularly focusing on the compositional aspects of language.

We will read state-of-the-art papers on the neurobiology of language in the healthy brain, and discuss the synergistic relations between linguistic theory and cognitive neuroscience of language.
