Brain and Language Lab
Our group studies the functional and structural bases of auditory and linguistic processing and learning using brain imaging methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), structural MRI (sMRI) and diffusion weighted imaging (DTI). We aim to better understand the neural bases of language and multilingualism, with an emphasis on specific language components such as phonology and grammar. We also study brain plasticity arising from learning and from the acquisition of expertise, as well as brain functional and structural difference in language disorders such as dyslexia.
