Language, Meaning and Thought

How do we make sense of the world around us?

Our understanding of the world depends on our ability to combine its individual elements into a meaningful whole. For example, to make sense of language, we must combine the meanings of individual words to form new meaning. We use multimodal neuroimaging techniques – fMRI, ERP and MEG – to understand when, where, and how this happens in the human brain and how this can break down in communicative disorders.
