The centre's research programme investigates the development of fundamental human capacities - particularly language - to elucidate the mechanism of language acquisition and provide insight into the development of specialised cognitive systems, furthering understanding of the structure and function of the human mind and its neural instantiations. The work aims to bring current (and future) advances in developmental cognitive science and language disorders to the assessment and treatment of developmental speech and language disorders. We conduct behavioural experiments, from a multidisciplinary perspective, to determine the acquisition, use, understanding and breakdown of language - particularly "Specific Language Impairment" (SLI) - and its relation to other cognitive capacities. The centre has a fully equipped high-density ERP testing suite and is part of the Department of Human Communication Science, University College London.
