Elucidation of working principles within neural networks controlling language

Research Project Outline

We aim to integrate clinical knowledge of language disorders and theoretical knowledge of language into systems neuroscience research of language. Our goal is to elucidate the computational principles underlying functional modules (i.e., syntactic and semantic processing, etc.) from the standpoint of functional differentiation and localization of language in the human brain. Our focus will be on elucidation of working principles within neural networks from the standpoint of the neural connections among modules within these networks. Furthermore, we will explore mechanisms of neural network reorganization during the sensitive period of language acquisition as well as after development of language disorders.
