Seminario de doctorado (UBA): Neurociencias del lenguaje (Sevilla y Wilson)
Septiembre-octubre 2021

Este seminario pertenece al plan de estudios de la Carrera de Especialización en Neurociencias cognitivas del lenguaje y la lectura y ha sido aprobado para que puedan cursarlo alumnxs de doctorado. Cualquier duda o consulta referida a los contenidos del Programa o a la modalidad de dictado, pueden escribir a 
Las neurociencias se ocupan del estudio de las bases neurológicas de las funciones cognitivas como el lenguaje, la memoria, la atención y las habilidades ejecutivas. En este curso presentaremos las evidencias neurobiológicas que apoyan o cuestionan los modelos explicativos de los principales dominios lingüísticos, a saber: la producción y comprensión del habla, la lectura y la escritura, el significado de las palabras, el procesamiento de la morfología de las palabras, la producción y comprensión de oraciones y, finalmente, la producción y comprensión del discurso narrativo. Presentaremos, entonces, estudios científicos que utilizan técnicas de neuroimagen, como la resonancia magnética, los potenciales evocados y la magnetoencefalografía. Así, los contenidos que se abordarán en este curso proporcionarán al estudiante un panorama general del estado del arte de la neurociencia del lenguaje.

May-October, 2021

We are delighted to announce the Leipzig Lectures on Language 2021—a novel series of online talks on combinatorics in language, where visions in theoretical and experimental linguistics will be discussed in combination with cutting-edge empirical methods. The term combinatorics is used here as a cover term for the many definitions of combinatorial processes in the psycho- and neurolinguistics literature including compositionalitycombinationcompositionbindingmergeblending, etc.

The series aims to highlight the directions into which junior scholars are currently moving forward.

New call for papers: Posters and Pre-registration posters only
We invite submissions of abstracts in any area of experimental pragmatics, including neuropragmatics, developmental pragmatics, and clinical pragmatics as well as pragmatics in multimodal communication.
For this second call for papers two types of submission are accepted:

  • Poster presentation
  • We welcome new submissions.
  • Moreover, the contributions that were previously accepted as pre-registration posters may be converted into poster presentation. Please submit the updated version by logging in to the submission form with your credentials.

Your updated contribution will replace the previously accepted one, being assigned the same ID as before.
  • Pre-registration poster presentation
  • This type of submission offers the opportunity to present plans for studies yet to be undertaken, rather than work that has been already completed.
Please, follow these submission guidelines to submit your abstract:
  • The abstracts must not exceed 1500 words including references. Max 2 figures to be uploaded separately during the submission process (file format .jpg, .png).
  • Abstracts must be written in English and should include a clear title.
  • Please indicate three appropriate keywords for your abstract, which will be used for session planning.

  • Introduction (background, reasons for carrying out the study, hypotheses);
  • Methods (how the hypothesis will be tested);
  • Approach for statistical analysis (what statistical tests will be used).
Accepted pre-registration posters should include the sections above, plus any data collected since submitting the abstract, and any initial statistical analysis or conclusions
  • Please note in this second call – meant for posters and pre-registration posters only – the authors may submit more than one contribution.
