Nice day today, with the starting of a new edition of my course at SISSA on brain and language. It was only our first meeting, but I enjoyed quite a lot already! It’s going to be a slightly edited and updated version of the course I gave in March to then-1st-year students (so, for those who followed that course, probably not a big deal to come again this round). We will go through the issue of how signs are mapped onto meaning in human language, and how neuroscience and experimental psychology address this problem. I’ve uploaded here a first version of the slides I’d plan to use, just for the sake of those good-old-fashioned students who might want to do some further reading in the making: please be aware this version is likely to change, although perhaps only slightly. More news soon!
