COGS 50.07 Aphasiology and the Neurobiology of Language

What happens when language is lost or impaired through injury or degeneration? In this course, we will first cover traditional models of brain and language, and compare them with current research linking linguistic processing to neurobiological mechanisms. We will then focus on classification of types of aphasia, covering symptoms and causes of each. We will investigate how disordered language is intertwined with general cognition, and how it is separate. Language breakdown will be analyzed at each level of representation and processing to provide a general understanding of aphasia and associated disorders.
