“Translational research in psycholinguistic: how basic research informs clinical research and vice versa”

Basic and applied research are traditionally conceived as fundamentally different. Applied research is used to answer a specific question that has a direct application, for instance in the medical field; on the contrary, basic research is motivated purely by a desire to expand theoretical knowledge. In my talk, I will argue that tight interactions between basic and applied research – that is translational research- can be fruitful, and show how basic research can inform clinical research and vice versa. I will focus on language processing and its impairments in neurological patients (stroke and neurodegenerative patients) and present two new tools issued from translational research that can be used to improve patients’ care.
