“… (a) We develop neurocognitive accounts of language function as a baseline for investigating the effects of acute and chronic stroke on language functions and the possibility of functional recovery; (b) We study the neurocognition of healthy aging focussing on the extent to which preserved cognitive functions are the result of neural reorganisation and plasticity; (c) We have developed a neurocognitive model which explains how objects are processed in a dynamic, recurrent network in the brain, by combining cognitive models with a hierarchical account of object processing in the ventral processing stream.”
