This course deals with modern neurolinguistics from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. The focus is on central areas within neurolinguistics: the comprehension, production and interaction of spoken and written language in the brain; the mental representation of individual words, clauses and discourse, respectively; and pragmatic processes in the brain – all with reference to basic neurolinguistic methodology and brain imaging. The course gives theoretical and practical knowledge of planning, carrying out, analysing and presenting experimental studies in neurolinguistics, including issues to do with the ethical aspects of the research. The course provides deepened insight into quantitative and experimental methodology and into quantitative machine analysis and interpretation. The course further covers pertinent areas of cognitive neuroscience such as relevant global networks in the brain, in an in-depth discussion of the brain’s functional anatomy.
