The Center, established in March 2011, and directed by Prof. Andrea Moro, Professor of Linguistics, Vice Rector and head of humanities courses at IUSS, until September 2016. The center is now directed by Prof. Cristiano Chesi.
The aims and activities of the center are mainly related to Neurocognition, Epistemology and the theory of natural language, in particular to syntax and its interface with semantics and pragmatics, to the neural localizations and architecture of linguistic processes as well as the computational models of processing.
The research and didactic activities will be carried out by relying also on agreements with other advanced schools and universities both at national and international levels.
