A workshop "The Neuroscience of Language: Understanding How the Brain Processes Language"; on 20th April 2023 from 3 pm-4:30 pm. Around 20 participants attended the workshop. The participants get to explore the fascinating intersection between the brain and language and gain a deeper understanding of the complex processes that underpin our ability to communicate. Participants get to know that language is one of the most fundamental aspects of human communication, allowing us to express our thoughts, emotions, and ideas.
The brain process and interpret language, neural mechanisms that allow us to understand and produce speakers, and how brain ability develops over the course of our lives. We also explored many issues through the deep into the cutting-edge research and technology that is driving our understanding of the brain and language, and integrate the implications of this research for fields such as education, psychology, and linguistics. I am confident that this conference was a rewarding experience by embracing this opportunity to unlock the secrets of the brain and language. Access to Workshop:
