Abstract english

The interdisciplinary symposium ”Microstructures of Learning: Novel methods and approaches for assessing structural and functional changes underlying knowledge acquisition in the brain” took place on May 23, 2014 in Lund, Sweden.



The cross-disciplinary meeting brought together researchers from linguistics, psychology, physics, chemistry, and neuroscience in order to discuss how knowledge, in particular, knowledge associated with learning a new language, is acquired and represented in the brain on a microstructural level. Novel non-invasive brain imaging methods for investigating language acquisition processes constituted a further theme of the symposium.
