Overview

 

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.

The current list of speakers and their biographies is available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions B.

This meeting is immediately followed by a related satellite meeting at the Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre.

Attending this event

This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend. There are a limited number of places and registration is essential. An optional lunch is offered and should be booked during registration (all major credit cards accepted).
