About the Course

This course introduces the key principles and goals of modern neurolinguistics. Neurolinguistics is a science that incorporates methods and paradigms of linguistics and neuroscience. This course discusses the main units and organizational principles of the human nervous system that underlie our language capacity. You will learn about the neurophysiological aspects of first and second language learning, discover clinical research in speech, reading and writing disorders, and also find out about speech disorders accompanying various psychiatric conditions. The course includes information on the history of neurolinguistics, modern techniques and methods of neurolinguistic research, and also provides detailed examples of several recent studies in the field. The outline of the course Module 1 introduces you to the main ideas and history of neurolinguistics. In this module you will learn how the human brain is organized and which cortical areas provide the basis for our language capacity. It also touches upon neuroevolution and the differences between the human brain and the brains of other mammals. In Module 2 you will learn about modern methods and techniques of neurolinguistic research, such as EEG, MEG, intracranial EEG, evoked and induced potentials. Module 3 continues the discussion of neurolinguistic research methods, introducing you to the fMRI method. It also provides examples of three recent neurolinguistic studies, detailing every stage: how the experiments were planned and conducted, and how the data was analysed. Module 4 discusses how children learn their first and second languages. It also touches upon the differences in the ways monolinguals and bilinguals process linguistic information. Modules 5 and 6 deal with clinical research in neurolinguistics. In Module 5 you will learn about aphasia. We will discuss the underlying causes of this disorder, its main types and different approaches to their classification and assessment. You will also learn about linguistic models based on aphasia data. Module 6 continues the topic of clinical research in neurolinguistics. In this module you will learn about auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia, their causes and treatment. This module also discusses brain asymmetry with regards to language and dichotic listening as a means of studying brain asymmetry. Module 7 is devoted to dyslexia and its comorbidities. This module will introduce you to four different approaches to dyslexia. You will also learn what longitudinal studies can tell us about dyslexia....

Dear Tatiana Vladimirovna and the other lecturers, you have presented a very interesting program!

THANK you very much.

My knowledge in psycholinguistics has deepened a lot.

P.S. I would participate in projects that focus on a multilingual brain (My home language is Buryat, second is Russian, third is English).

A very good overview of the current trends and techniques. However, I would add a separate module describing more in details the morphology of brain and, especially, the terminology of its spatial descriptions and localizations to better understand and mentally retain the logic behind the reasonings.

Great in-depth introduction on Neurolinguistics. It was fascinating to learn how our brain processes and produces language. The course also deals with the characteristics of language disorders such as schizophrenia and dyslexia. I definitely want to learn more about the topic. Thank you very much!

Очень интересно и познавательно! Спасибо большое!

От себя хотела бы попросить, чтобы специалисты говорили каждый на своем на родном языке, так как из-за особенностей произношения на английском языке некоторых русскоговорящих лекторов не всегда было легко слушать и воспринимать информацию.

Отличный курс, благодаря небольшой длительности видео было легко поддерживать мотивацию даже в трудных темах. Маленькими шагами я пришла к комплексному пониманию того, что такое нейролингвистика, как устроена система восприятия речи и говорения. Особенно понравился раздел про шизофрению!

An excellent course covering a wide range of the aspects of neurolinguistics. It has certainly broadened my knowledge on many aspects of linguistics and as reading literacy scholar has given me a sound foundation in linking reading with its neurological basis.

Excelente curso, muy informativo y completo. Da una completa visión sobre la sciencia de Neurolingüstica. Sólamente el 2do módulo, básicamente fue auto-aprendizaje, pero los demás meastros fueron muy muy buenos! ¡Muchas gracias!

Thanks a lot! It was great! Listening both in English and Russian helps training our bilingual skills. And moreover, the course helped me in understanding some of my daughter's speaking troubles. Thank you.

Удивительный по глубине и идеям курс. Возможность расширить свой кругозор и точное ориентирование о состоянии нейронауки в мире. Для российского исследователя это и способ углубить свои познания.
