Welcome

The works carried out at LINGUA benefit from the clinical and neuroimaging approaches to study the neuroscience of language.

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) : Structural, functional, diffusion & resting-state
  • Neurodegeneration: Cognition in Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s and primary progressive aphasias
  • Language: Reading, semantics, naming, spontaneous speech
  • Aging: Cognition in normal aging
