Contributions of neural connectivity to language processing (Dissertationsprojekt)
Institut für Deutsche und Niederländische Philologie - Brain Language Lab
While there is growing evidence supporting the distributed representation of words across the cortical regions, the limitations of current imaging techniques restrict their ability to study these representations at a granular cortical level. Therefore, the primary objective of my doctoral research project is to employ brain constrained models to investigate the formation of cell assemblies for spoken words and their interactions in various language modalities. Specifically, my research focuses on elucidating the impact of connectivity structures on verbal working memory and non-associative learning, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying these cognitive processes.
