主讲人简介:

Dr. Adolfo M. García: specializes in the neuroscience of language. He is the Scientific Director of the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology and Neuroscience, at the Institute of Cognitive and Translational Neuroscience (Argentina). He is also Assistant Researcher at the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (Argentina).He has more than 90 publications, including books, chapters and articles in leading journals. In 2013 he received the Most Outstanding Paper Award from the Linguistic Association of Canada and the United States. Later that same year, he was distinguished by the Ibero-American Neuroeducation Society. In 2015, he was awarded the Young Investigator Prize, granted by the Argentine Association of Behavioral Science.


主要内容:

In this lecture, multidimensional evidence from the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology and Neuroscience (at the Institute of Cognitive and Translational Neuroscience) will be presented, showing that motor and perceptual mechanisms play a decisive role in early, automatic semantic processes. Several studies will also be discussed showing how this change in perspective gives rise to breakthroughs in the quest for early and preclinical markers of neurodegenerative diseases (especially, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease). To conclude, there will be a discussion concerning how our theoretical conceptions of language may promote or hinder the development of translational proposals, thus impacting on the applied potential of neurolinguistics and linguistics at large.
