Laboratory of Cognition, Language, and Development (LCLD)

Faculty of Psychological and Educational Sciences | Research center in cognition and neurosciences

Interfaculty institutes | UNI, ULB Neuroscience Institute

(Code: ULB099)

Person in charge of the unit : CHETAIL Fabienne.

The research program of the laboratory concerns the study of human cognition, and the study of natural language and its development. The approach is mainly
based on behavioral experimental techniques, with normal and pathological children and adult subjects. It also integrates computational modelling work as
well as the contribution of cognitive neurosciences and neuroimaging techniques (ERPs, fMRI). Currently, the major themes of interest concern on the one
hand psycholinguistics: language processing across modalities; written language acquisition disorders (dyslexias/dysgraphias); language development in
hearing-impaired persons; bilingualism and second language acquisition, and on the other hand, numerical cognition: relationships between early preverbal
numerical abilities and later skills; influence of conventional notation systems on quantity perception and estimation; numerical and arithmetic developmental
disorders. The LCLD is a member of the SCOLA center.
