The NeuroPsychoLinguistic team has been founded in 2008 thanks to the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF professorship project N. PP001-118969).

We study language and speech production in neurotypical adults, and language and speech disorders in brain damaged adults (aphasia and motor speech disorders) using psycholinguistics, neuropsychological, and electrophysiological approaches Current

Ongoing funded projects :

Sinergia project SNSF 2021-25: ChaSpeePro,  Characterisation of motor speech disorders and processes  (SNSF CRSII5_202228, PI: Marina Laganaro, in collaboration with Cécile Fougeron, Paris3;  Ina Kodrasi, IDIAP-EPFL; Frederic Assal, HUG).
