The link between production and comprehension. Insights from aphasia.

PI(s): PD Dr. Frank Burchert & Dr. Nicole Stadie

In this project we aim to gain insights about the relationship between comprehension and production from language impairments in aphasia. We address the production-comprehension link from two perspectives: 1) modality-specific language impairments and 2) structural predictions during sentence comprehension. Regarding the production-comprehension link, we hypothesize that the functioning of the production system is dependent on the intactness of the comprehension system, thus it also affects the ability to make predictions. These insights are theoretically important as they further elucidate the precise link between the two language modalities and are crucial for models of structural predictions.

in phase 1:

Understanding variability and its limits in impaired and unimpaired sentence comprehension

PI(s): Prof. Dr. Shravan Vasishth, PD Dr. Frank Burchert, Dr. phil. Nicole Stadie

This project aims to identify the constraints that determine sentence comprehension difficulty in healthy and aphasic participants; we will focus on understanding the sources of inter- and intra-individual variability and stability in performance. We will use both computational modelling and experimental research to achieve these goals. A longer-term goal is to investigate whether and to what extent aphasic patients can benefit from our empirical and modelling work through the development of impairment-specific treatment protocols.
