Language and Perception

Objective

"This network provides a unique approach to understanding the interaction between two central cognitive systems: language and perception. Traditionally these systems have been studied independently, with training provided from a single discipline perspective. This training network offers an interdisciplinary approach to the examination of the bidirectional relationships between language and perception for the first time, bridging the translational gap between basic and applied research, both in clinical settings and in industry. The workpackages in the training program form three interconnected clusters: (1) ""Language-perception interactions in healthy participants - basic research"" investigates theories of language and perception from complementary perspectives in order to break new ground in understanding language-perception interactions. (2) ""Language-perception interactions in atypical populations – applied research"" transports state-of-the-art methods of language-perception to atypical populations in order to identify underlying mechanisms for different kinds of atypical behaviours. (3) ""Advanced technologies for language and perception"" research bridges basic research and its applications in the development of new behavioural and neurophysiological techniques to identify the interaction between language and perception among typical (adults and children) and atypical populations. Industrial partners within the ITN will work across all three clusters, offering project-specific collaboration with ER and ERS trainees, secondment placements, entrepreneurial training at schools and courses, as well as supervision and industrial guidance through supervisory board and educational committee participation. This ITN will produce a new generation of integrative language and perception scientists with the technological, theoretical, and entrepreneurial skills necessary to make breakthroughs in the understanding of language-perception interactions and associated applications"
