מחקר

We study brain systems that underlie language processing in healthy and atypical populations, by combining cognitive measurements, diffusion MRI and fMRI. The underlying premise guiding our research is that most aspects of language and reading, even fine linguistically defined processes, are achieved via elaborate processing pathways, not by a single cortical hotspot. We quantify structural properties of these pathways with dMRI and relate them to cognitive function through behavioral and fMRI measurements in individual participants.
