Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

Meeting Description:

The aim of this workshop is to build stronger links between clinical, experimental and computational modelling of disorders where there is a language or communication deficit. Historically, modellers have used limited experimental data to support their work, and clinical work has had limited influence – the goal of the workshop is to bring together workers from different areas to discuss how models might better reflect actual physiology or behaviour, and what predictive validity they may have in these areas.
