LIN 218/PSY 218

Language and the Brain

Back to "Fall 2012" courses

Examines how language is processed in real-time in the human brain. The focus will be on the mental representations that characterize human language, and the cognitive operations that are necessary to construct them during comprehension and production. Students will be introduced to behavioral (reaction time), electrophysiological (EEG, MEG), and neuroimaging (fMRI, PET) results that identify the representations and processes of language processing, and the cortical architectures that support them.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00am-12:20pm
