Theme 1: Language and Communication


Donders-LANGUAGE-COMMUNICATION-screenResearch in this theme aims to understand the complexity of human language faculty and its development at the behavioural, cognitive, and neural levels in healthy individuals as well as in populations with dysfunction in linguistic and communication skills.

To do so it adopts a multilevel approach that is from genes to neurons, brain, cognition, interaction, and society. This broad approach to language also forms the basis in understanding language breakdowns as in acquired or developmental language disorders and to devise clinical applications and solutions to enhance language and communication skills in society for minority groups such as immigrants, hard of hearing etc as well as for communication in crisis times (i.e, COVID19 era).
