Neurobiology of Language: Key Issues and Ways Forward

8 April 2021 - 9 April 2021
Max Planck Institute
Online
Conference
The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics celebrates its 40th anniversary with a series of scientific events. Due to the corona crisis, this conference will be held online.

One of these events is a two-day meeting on the topic of The Neurobiology of Language: Key Issues and Ways Forward. Rather than looking back, we would like to see from the contributions of the speakers what the challenges and the promises are for the neurobiology of language, a field that in its current form has a much shorter history than our institute. The research of the invited speakers has opened promising avenues, which we would like to hear more about from a forward-looking perspective.

Organization: Carolin Lorenz

Chair: Peter Hagoort

Moderators: Sophie Arana, Ashley Lewis, Branka Milivojevic, Guillermo Montero-Melis
