Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

The aim of our symposium is to bring together researchers from both
language development and language impairment from neurosciences and
linguistics. The neural basis of language development and of language
processing will be discussed with neuroimaging data on healthy children.
Behavioural and imaging data on children with brain lesions and epilepsy
illustrate the compensatory possibilities and limitations of brain plasticity in
the language domain.

Although the field of language acquisition is well studied, relatively little is
known about language processing in the developing brain. Of particular
linguistic interest are the following questions: The first question concerns
language processing during language development in the healthy and in the
lesioned brain. Is language processing in children and adolescents different
from adults, especially after the critical period of language acquisition? How
does the lesioned brain process language and what can language
impairment tell us about processing?
