Postdoc position Language neuroscience

Short description

Language neurocognition is undergoing a change of perspective and within the connectomic perspective linguistic processes are now based on integrative models that consider sets of brain regions that are inter-connected and organized into cortical and subcortical networks. Our objective is to assess integrative language networks and sub-networks based on a large set of functional neuroimaging (fMRI) data obtained with specific language production and comprehension tasks. Functional connectivity analyses will be the core of this postdoctoral work in this project.
