Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Dorothy Bishop FMedSci FBA, Professor Kate Nation and Professor Karalyn Patterson FMedSci FBA

Event details

Disorders of language that arise from developmental abnormalities or from adult brain injury provide complementary perspectives on the organisation of language, yet research in these areas has evolved independently. This discussion meeting will address some of the major questions about language representations - for example, which components of language are dissociable from one another with the goal of integrating neuropsychological and developmental perspectives.
