Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture will provide basic and state-of-the-art knowledge in neurolinguistics. This includes basic neurophysiology of the language system and a discussion of how the main components of language (phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) are supported by different areas and processes in the brain. We will deal with both perception and production and discuss several domain-general theories explaining how language is enabled by the brain.
