Biomedical Imaging Institute, FMHS
Speaker: Anna Woollams, Paul Hoffman, Patti Adank, Shirley-Ann Rueschemeyer
Background: The advent of different forms of neuroimaging, such as MEG (magnetoencephalography) and fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging), has opened up new avenues for studying written and spoken language processing. MEG offers a window into the online dynamics of neural activation during language processing, while fMRI has allowed for identification of neural regions involved in particular linguistic and non-linguistic tasks. This symposium will first consider neuroimaging research that has revealed the neural time course of orthographic and semantic processing in reading, as well as the nature of the conceptual system that stores the meanings of words. Furthermore, the symposium will address the extent to which the brain regions involved in speech perception and production are shared, and how perception and production interact during language processing.
I hope you will be able to join us.
