In the Dwivedi Brain and Language Lab, we integrate sophisticated linguistic theory with the latest advances in neuroscience in order to build a model that can more accurately predict how language is processed in the brain.
There are at least 7,000 languages spoken on the planet. Furthermore, each human brain consists of a network of about 10 billion neurons. How do human brains comprehend and generate language? In order to properly answer this question, an integrated analysis is required that combines advanced knowledge from linguistics, neuroscience, and psychology. This is the focus of Dr. Veena D. Dwivedi’s research.
