Language Circle 2023
Neurobiologists of language need to operate in accordance with all sorts of scientific domains: systems neuroscience, cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, quantitative phonetics, and even corpus linguistics.
The mapping of cognition onto tissue and electrophysiology is hard enough, as we must select our biological targets rationally. Yet, we must also stay in touch with the dynamics of cognitive science and psycholinguistics, where processing theories are refined and consolidated. And we need to keep an eye on Big Data to know whether tissue and theory really fit the patterns that are general to the languages of the world.
The Language Circle hosts a bouquet of voices that can help us to match neural systems, boxes and arrows, and cultural patterns. The Language Circle is inter-disciplinary, current, and curious. We are looking forward to welcoming you on site or online.
