Neurolinguistics at the Faculty of Humanities

As a result of the activities of the neurolinguistic club at the faculty, a group of enthusiastic linguistic students has been formed assisting in neurolinguistic researches, working on scientific projects on neurolinguistic topics and regularly participating in the Summer and Winter Schools of Neurolinguistics at Higher School of Economics in Moscow.
The participation of students (Higher School of Economics in Nizhny Novgorod) in the research process made it possible to update the topics of course and diploma projects, increase the motivation of young people and satisfy the demand for the social relevance of scientific research.

Starting from the 2017-2018 academic year, students have written 2-4 course papers on neurolinguistic issues. In 2020, the first two diploma projects (by A. Minnigulova
and N. Kislyakova) were written and given 10 points.

A youth research team formed around the Center of Language and Brain in cooperation with Moscow colleagues (project manager O. Dragoi) received a grant from the Russian Science Foundation to carry out an interdisciplinary research called “Disorder of coherent speech of patients with brain tumors: linguistic analysis and anatomical correlates” with funding of 6 million rubles per year (2020-2022). Research under the grant is being carried out. Three reports and two publications have been made so far.
