- 14:00 Angela Friederici: Neural basis of language development: From phonology to sentence structure

- 15:30 Discussion and soft drinks just outside the lecture hall


Abstract: Language develops as the brain matures. Although phonological learning is present at the age of 5 months it takes a long time before structurally complex sentences can be processed. The maturation of certain brain structures goes together with the development of particular processing abilities. In adults the language-related brain regions are connected by several fiber tracts: a ventrally located one connecting the semantic regions, and two dorsal tracts: one pathway which connects the temporal cortex to the premotor cortex (PMC) known to support auditory-based phonological processes and another pathway which connects the temporal cortex to Broca's area (BA 44) known to subserve the processing of syntactically complex sentences. Brain structural data from newborns, children and adults demonstrate that the pathway to PMC is present in the infant at birth providing the bases for phonologically based learning observable early during development, whereas the pathway to BA 44 only matures much later and appears to be directly linked to the performance of processing of syntactically complex sentences late in development.
