Human language is studied by linguists, psychologists, and neuroscientists alike. However, language researchers do not always look for ways to bridge between these disciplines. How can we use computational modelling to link levels of description of the language system? This one-day workshop is of interest to all researchers who apply computational methods to investigate the structure, use, or neurobiology of language — and in particular to those who aim to bridge between the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and linguistics.
