On behalf of the Experimental Psycholinguistics Conference, Spain
Workshop on Aphasia
Date: 07-Oct-2015 - 09-Oct-2015
Location: Madrid, Spain
Contact Person: Vincent Torrens
Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2015
The workshop on aphasia intends to gather people working on fluent aphasia, non-fluent aphasia, conduction aphasia, transcortical aphasia, anomia, primary progressive aphasia or Alzheimer, with independence of the etiology. We intend to publish a collection based primarily on papers from the workshop. Papers will be selected on the basis of blind-referring and their contribution to specific themes of particular interest arising from the workshop.
Call for Papers:
Papers are invited for oral presentations on the language properties of aphasia, taking into consideration studies on fluent aphasia, non-fluent aphasia, conduction aphasia, transcortical aphasia, anomia, primary progressive aphasia or Alzheimer, with independence of the etiology. We'll also consider related disorders. The organization of the conference is interested into the study of the processing of passive constructions, relative clauses, empty categories and lexical access in aphasic patients. Also, a particular interest will be devoted to studies in aphasia that will shed light on normal language processing.
We emphasize the use of new experimental methods (i.e. eye tracking, reaction times, ERP's, fMRI, visual preference paradigm or genetics), although it's not restricted to this. Presentations will be in English.Authors are invited to send one copy of an abstract in English for review. Abstracts must be at most one page long on an A4 or letter-size sheet (8'''1/2 by 11''') with one-inch margins and typed in at least 12-point font. An optional second page is permitted for data and references. Abstracts must be anonymous.
Please name your word file with the first author’s surname (e.g., brown.pdf), use 'Aphasia Abstract' in the Subject header and include the information in (1) - (7), which should constitute the body of the message.
