We study the neural bases of linguistic knowledge and processing. Linguistic knowledge (about how phonemes combines into morphemes and words, which in turn combine into complex meanings) is characterized by Linguistic Theory; processing ability stems from the implementation of this knowledge in cognitive structures that are supported by neural mechanisms. Our lab studies the intricate relation between these, that results in that rich ability that we humans have - the ability to express ourselves freely, and understands others who do so. We try to get a glimpse of the linguistic brain in health as well as in brain disease.
