What Wires Together Dies Together: Patterns of Language Impairment in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Referent: Dr. Thomas Bak | Diskussionsleitung: Prof. Dr. Adrian Danek

02.11.2011 at 18:15 

The recent advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases have been paralleled (and indeed preceded) by a growing recognition that different forms of neurodegeneration are associated with characteristic patterns of cognitive dysfunction. In his presentation Thomas Bak will focus on different types of language impairment seen in neurodegeneration and its relationship not only to other cognitive but also motor functions. He will argue that a more subtle analysis of language deficits is not only essential for diagnosis and treatment, but can also offer insights into the very nature of neurodegenerative processes.

Thomas Bak lehrt an der University of Edinburgh am Institut für "Cognitive Neurology" sowie dem "Center for Clinical Brain Sciences" und ist derzeit Visiting Fellow am CAS.
