Language, Brain, and Mind


Joanne Arciuli


This node brings together researchers from multiple disciplines to address issues relating to the representation and processing of speech, language, and literacy in a truly interdisciplinary way. Our focus is basic and applied research undertaken with both child and adult participants as well as corpus analyses and computational modeling. We address topics such as language acquisition (of both first language and second language, in typical and atypical language learners), cognitive models of listening, speaking, reading, and spelling – including developmental models, as well as diagnosis and remediation of speech and language disorders caused by degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. Members of this node include researchers from Speech Pathology in the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Brain and Mind Centre, from Psychology in the Faculty of Science and from the Department of Writing Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
