LanPercept - Language and Perception

Language and Perception, lab workLanguage and perception are two basic cognitive systems which constantly interact and rely on each other in our daily existence.

LanPercept studies how people at different ages and with different deficits map language to what they perceive. The network of senior specialists and young professionals work together to develop new tools and software to help educational and health practitioners in their work.
