Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

Call Deadline: 01-Jul-2019

Meeting Description:

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers who study the neural organization of syntax. Based on research with both neurotypical and aphasic participants, we seek to get a snapshot of the state-of-the-science and, crucially, to identify future directions for research in the area in a two-day meeting abut the neurofunctional architecture of syntax and its components, neurocognitive interfaces between syntax and other linguistic and domain-general processing systems, and about what seem to be the most useful and informative methodologies for investigating syntactic processing.

Call for Papers:

The meeting will also include a poster session. Abstracts of original, unpublished work on the brain and syntax are invited (maximum 1000 words [excluding references], one figure and one table).

Please submit to: by July 1, 2019. Best posters will be selected for a poster blitz platform presentation!
