About This Event

Event Description:

The presence of speech disorders has been extensively investigated in patients with Progressive Primary Aphasia, but difficulties in language tasks may also be present in other neurodegenerative diseases. In these clinical conditions, the linguistic profile and the respective neural correlates have not yet been fully characterized, remaining in many cases unexplored. Recent innovations in the field of cognitive neuroscience have led to new methods of analyzing and integrating data from multiple sources, offering a unique perspective for investigating complex phenomena such as language. This workshop aims to offer a multidisciplinary approach to characterize the linguistic profile in neurodegenerative diseases, through the integration of information from different sources, including behavioral and cognitive, neuroimaging and computational data.

Alternate Description:

Specific objectives to be detailed
1) Sharing of evidence relating to language deficits in neurodegenerative diseases;
2) Presentation of multidisciplinary approaches to characterize language through neuroimaging and computational models.
3) Discussion of potential therapeutic / rehabilitative relapses.

Training impact
The event aims to update knowledge on language disorders in neurodegenerative diseases, both in terms of diagnostic aspects and rehabilitation possibilities.
