Brain, Behaviour and Language

Brain, Behaviour and Language

The world has never been as connected as it is today. In response to globalisation, language and communication is rapidly shifting and evolving, making linguistics an exciting field of study. The University of Canterbury is at the forefront of language research, exploring the connection between language and society, how language changes over time and the systems of speech sounds.

The University of Canterbury is a leader in the study of human language through the New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain and Behaviour, and focuses on a range of disciplines including speech production and perception, language acquisition, language disorders, social cognition, memory, brain imaging, cognitive science, bilingual education, and interface technologies. University of Canterbury academics are also leaders at the Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research housed at St George’s Hospital, helping people regain independence following stroke through speech therapy and swallowing rehabilitation.
