BRAMS – CRBLM Lecture Series: Researcher Lecture by Dr. Noémie Auclair Ouellet

Morphosyntactic difficulties in acquired language disorders and their relationship with rhythm processing

Abstract: Morphosyntactic difficulties are part of the clinical profile in many acquired language disorders related to vascular and neurodegenerative diseases. These difficulties not only concern the production of complex sentences but also affect language comprehension. However, speech difficulties and motor incapacities are often part of the clinical profile and may share common underlying origins. In this presentation, morphosyntactic difficulties in different populations will be reviewed with respect to their potential to inform the comprehension of the relationship between language and rhythm processing. The relationship between rhythm and language in normal subjects will also be discussed, more specifically in the context of bilingualism.

Short bio: Dr. Auclair-Ouellet is an Assistant Professor at the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University. She conducts research that focuses on the interaction between language, other domains of cognition, and the global clinical profile in acquired language disorders of vascular and neurodegenerative origin. Her current work focuses on semantic cognition, cognitive control, and morphology, syntax, and connected speech. She uses a combination of methods including behavioural assessment and brain imaging.
