ProGram is an interdisciplinary research and education center for neurolinguistics at the University of Copenhagen.
The ProGram project examines how the human brain processes grammar and how grammatical processing differs from other kinds of language processing.
Different methods are used for examining the processing of grammar, e.g. MRI, behavioral studies and studies of individuals with aphasia. Read more about the project's research methods here.
Knowledge about how the brain processes grammar will facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of language impairments pertaining to grammar (e.g. related to a brain injury). The project also provides new knowledge of how grammar can be taught and acquired.
ProGram is one of 18 research initiatives established in 2013 based on a grant from The University of Copenhagen Excellence Programme for Interdisciplinary Research.
