The department of Neuropsychology’s research agenda is to identify the functional architecture of language and its neural bases in the mature and the developing brain. The approach is interdisciplinary, using different methods to analyze the functional and structural neural network of language.
Available PhD projects
The current research focuses on identifying the ontogenetic and phylogenetic brain functional and structural prerequisites of the human language faculty. This includes cross species comparison of human and
non-human primates. Students with an interest in the evolution of language and backgrounds in cognitive science, psychology, linguistics and biology are welcome.
