Language is a powerful means for human interaction and thinking. Our group participates in discovering the fascinating neural phenomena underlying language.

The left arcuate fasciculus is a white matter tract important for language processing. The different colours mark different segments.

We study a variety of language and auditory functions and their plasticity in the brain, ranging from the representations of speech sounds to the memory of words and word structure. Our aim is to understand influences of language learning, sensory or neural dysfunctions, and intervention on these processes.

We are a research group in the Cognitive Brain Research Unit at the Institute of Behavioural Sciences, University of Helsinki. You can visit us at this address.
