The objective of the Language team is to understand the neurocognitive mechanisms of language production and reception.
Language is involved in three essential functions: communication, cognition and metacognition.
These three functions operate on language through evolutionary pressures that explain the diversity of sounds and signs in the world's languages as well as the complexity of the neural architecture underlying language.
Our research work is organized along three axes, corresponding to these three essential functions, and in interaction with each other. Communication Axis Cognition Axis Metacognition-Autonoesis Axis
