#7 - Vitoria Piai - How we process and create language
In this conversation we talk about the science of language. How does language work? What is language and how does it impact us every day? We discuss how language makes us uniquely human and where do the borders lie if there are any. We also talk about the overlaps of language and memory. Our guest is Dr. Vitoria Piai. Vitória is a senior researcher at the Donders Centre for Cognition and the Radboud University Medical Centre. Her research focuses on language function in healthy and neurological populations, such as stroke, brain tumor, epilepsy, and neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia or Parkinson’s.
