Questions addressed

The main project of the lab will focus on bilingual brain and body image, specifically on whether the perception of one’s own body is influenced by proficiency and age of acquisition of language and which language is currently being used. This question will be addressed in healthy subjects and in brain lesion patients, with potential implication for recovery after brain lesion.
Techniques used for such paradigms include behavioral observations, analyses of networks through fMRI techniques and Brain Mapping/Evoked Potentials. Other topics will address the modification of theory of mind after brain lesions and potential implication on behavior.
