Cerilim Sicilia – Psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research

About neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic research within the center
Within the Research Center for Linguistic Studies and Multicultural Studies (CE.RI.LIM), neurolinguistic and psycholinguistic research focuses on the study of how the brain processes and understands the language. Neurolinguistic research focuses on how the brain processes linguistic information, such as reading, writing, and speaking. Psycholinguistic research focuses on how cognition and emotions influence language comprehension and use.

This research may include the use of neuroimaging techniques, such as positron emission tomography (PET) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to analyze brain activity while participants perform language tasks or listen to the speech. It is also possible to use neuro-stimulation techniques such as TMS or TES, and behavior and language analysis techniques such as conversation or discourse analysis.

The goal of this research is to better understand how the brain processes and understands language, and how certain problems, such as language disorders or reading disorders, can be better treated and understood.

This type of research can be useful in many fields, such as education, medicine, or even business, where it can be used to better understand how people communicate and how changes can be made to increase the effectiveness of communication.
