Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course provides an introduction to the field of neurolinguistics, the study of how language is represented and processed in the brain. The course will begin with a historical treatment of the pioneers of neurolinguistics and will trace the key findings and ideas that began with early work in the field and continue to develop as a result of recent breakthroughs in brain imaging technology. The course will provide students with an introduction to the types of aphasias and, more generally, the ways in which damage to the brain can affect language ability. We will discuss the ways in which language processing and representation in the brain is affected by the learning of a second language and by multilingualism. Finally, we will explore the ways in which the neuroscience of language is linked to the neuroscience of other cognitive domains.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Student progress will be evaluated through written examinations. These examinations will include a variety of assessment types (e.g., terminology, short essay, short answer).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Prerequisites:
No prior background in neurolinguistics is assumed for this course. Basic knowledge of linguistics is helpful, but not required.
Knowledge:
Students will acquire knowledge of the types of impairments in language functioning that result from damage to the brain and the manner in which patterns of impairment form syndromes. They will gain familiarity with the major types of aphasia and with the key historical developments and trends in neurolinguistics.
Skills:
Students will aquire skills in the identification of brain structures relevant to language, in the analysis of language disorders caused by damage to the brain, and in the analysis of patterns of online language performance.
Insight:
Our goal is to gain insight into the key issues and challanges in neurolinguistics, its methods, and the phenomena that are studied in the field. Of particular importance will be the implications of language impairment for theories of unimpaired language representation and processing in the brain.

Prüfungsstoff

Lectures and discussion, lecture notes, and course readings

Literatur

Course readings will include overview chapters on general neurolinguistics and articles on specific topics. The readings will be distributed electronically.
