Institute of Language, Communication and the Brain (ILCB)
CNRS & Université d'Aix-Marseille
Bringing together experts in linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, medicine and computer science to understand and to model the way that language functions.
The ILCB constitutes a major initiative in Cognitive Science. It aims to explore the neural basis of human language and communication by studying the components of L&C and proposing unifying models and architectures. The originality and ambition of the ILCB lies in the integration of a wide range of disciplines, methodologies and experimental techniques that all contribute to the description of human language processing and communication (as paradigmatic examples of high-level cognitive functions) in laboratory and naturalistic settings.
