Temario

Words, whether spoken, written or signed, form a key element in language production and comprehension. This course provides an introduction into how words and their meanings are processed and organized during word recognition and production. The first part of the course will focus on spoken and written word recognition. The topics that will be covered include: behavioral methods used to study the time course of lexical processing, the role of lexical characteristics (such as frequency) in word processing, and computational models of word recognition. Furthermore, the first part of the course will explore how new word forms and meanings are established in the lexicon and integrated with existing lexical representations. The second part of the course will explore the neural basis of these processes examining current neuroanatomical models of spoken language comprehension and production, as well as different types of neuroimaging experimental designs and analyses that are being used to further inform these models.
