Doctorate program
Tue: 14-16

The lecture will treat various cognitive and neurophysiological aspects of processing language and other forms of human communication. The lecture will cover classic neurolinguistic themes, such as for example the neural basis of phonological, lexical-semantic, syntactic processing, language development, second language learning as well as evolutionary precursors of language in nun-human species. ETCS credits will be earned via a mid-term and a final exam (45 min. each).
