What happens in the brain when we hear a sentence or form one? Why is it that children and adults can all learn languages, but children are usually far more successful at it – or is that a false impression? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Dutch city of Nijmegen are getting to the bottom of questions like these in the course of their project work. They are also interested in how language and thinking affect one another and what role the cultural environment plays in this. The five areas of Language Acquisition, Neurobiology of Language, Psychology of Language, Language and cognition, and Language and Genetics define the Institute’s scientific framework. These areas are heavily interconnected through a flexible project structure, in line with the interdisciplinary nature of this research field.
