Neuroscience of Language: Experimental Approaches to Language and the Brain 

A short intensive course on Neuroscience of Language will be held at the University of St. Petersburg on April 23-27, 2013, covering a wide range of topics pertinent to the subject, with lectures given by a cohort of international scientists. The course is organised collaboratively with the University of Eastern Finland (with Finnish student participation) with support from Finnish-Russian Student Exchange Programme (FIRST), BioN and the University of St. Petersburg (Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences).  The current programme is below:
