Language Processing and Cognition
Using the language system in real time - i.e. speaking and listening, or signing and watching sign - requires fast processing of information at different levels in our cognitive system. How do we do this? How is linguistic information activated, processed and integrated, and where in the brain do these processes take place? How can we device experiments that give us insight in the workings of our language processing system? The theme "Language processing and cognition" combines courses that center around these questions.
