Neurobiology of language and communication

Chaired by Prof. Peter Hagoort and Prof. Julia Fischer

Language is a higher cognitive function that is typically associated with human communication. The underlying neuronal systems have been largely unraveled, using e.g. fMRI. Studies over the past decades have shown that similar systems and functions are also in place for social communication in other species. This school will provide students with the latest insights into the topic, emphasizing similarities across species as well as pointing out which models are most suitable to address specific aspects.
