Podcast with Dr. Tremblay

On June 8, Pascale Tremblay, director of the laboratory, spoke with Stephen Wilson, a professor at Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA, as part of The Language Neuroscience Podcast, hosted by Professor Wilson.

The discussion focused mainly on an article published by Dr. Tremblay and her colleague Dr. Anthony Steven Dick: Broca and Wernicke are dead, or moving past the classic model of language neurobiology. During the episode, Dr. Tremblay discusses the importance of using contemporary models of language neurobiology, based on recent neuroimaging and neurostimulation data, and presents the main white matter tracts involved in speech and language.

Don’t miss the other episodes of the series, where Dr. Wilson discuss with other researchers studying language and the brain.

The scientific article featured in the podcast with Dr. Tremblay is available here on Corpus UL.

Here is a figure (from Tremblay & Dick, 2016) illustrating the white matter tracts discussed in the podcast:

About Us

Le laboratoire des neurosciences de la parole et de l’audition, dirigé par Pascale Tremblay, Ph.D., se spécialise dans la recherche en neurosciences cognitives du langage. Nos travaux, fondamentalement multidisciplinaires, portent principalement sur les bases neurobiologiques de la perception et la production du langage et de la voix, et sur les facteurs qui affectent notre habileté à communiquer en contexte social (âge, cognition, audition, etc.).
