Psycholinguistics & Neurolinguistics Lab


The Laboratory of Psycholinguistics & Neurolinguistics offers training and carries out research in the area of psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. Our research is interdisciplinary. We study language not only in the various levels of language analysis (e.g. morphology, syntax, phonetics, semantics) but also with respect to other related sciences (e.g. psychology, speech and language therapy) or other cognitive systems (memory, perception, music). More specifically, the Laboratory offers training and carries out research in the areas of:

•    first language acquisition,
•    understanding and production of spoken and written language,
•    the relation between language and cognition,
•    the biological foundations of language and the relation between brain and language,
•    the study of acquired and developmental language disorders (e.g. aphasia, primary progressive aphasia, Alzheimer’s disease, specific language impairment, autism spectrum disorder, hearing impairment/deafness, William’s syndrome, Down syndrome) and their effect on written language,
•    learning a second / foreign language, bilingualism and multilingualism,
•    Greek Sign Language,
•    literacy acquisition.
