Neuroanatomy refresher : Language and the Brain
Want to learn more about the brain regions involved in language?
This workshop will go over the different brain areas and networks important for various aspects of language, including speech, comprehension, reading, and writing. At the end of the workshop you will have a better idea of what each area does, how to locate it on the brain and the main white matter connections between regions. You will also learn about brain plasticity in the context of how language learning and linguistic experiences can alter brain connectivity and structure.
The workshop will be led by Elise Barbeau. Snacks will be served!
When: April 3, 4:00-6:00pm
