School Of Human And Behavioural Sciences
In this advanced module we will explore several aspects of spoken and written language processing in normal and impaired populations. Specific topics will include: Understanding spoken words, producing words, reading and writing, bilingualism. We will review research evidence from converging sources: cognitive psychology (errors, reaction times), neuroscience (brain imaging, evoked potentials, brain stimulation) and neuropsychology (e.g., aphasia, dyslexia). We will discuss which methods are best suited to tackle different questions and how to gage the strength of the evidence in favour of different viewpoints.
