Research

My research interests are in the cognitive science and neuroscience of language. I study the comprehension of spoken language in the mind and the brain using interdisciplinary techniques aimed at identifying the neural processing streams that support the immediate interpretation of spoken utterances. My current research brings together behavioural, neuropsychological and neuroimaging data from contrasting languages (such as Arabic, Polish, and English) to determine the underlying general properties of human language as a neuro-cognitive system.
