Our mission


To understand the way that language functions and to model it by bringing together experts in linguistics, neuroscience, psychology, medicine and computer science, such is the project of ILCB. The objective is to create a generic model of the processing of language and its cerebral underpinning.

The ILCB intends to contribute to this ambitious question: to understand how humans processes language, including its cerebral functions.

Fundamentally interdisciplinary and principally rooted in the social sciences, the BLRI includes 6 laboratories in the region (LPL, LPC, LNC, LIF, IBD and LIA).

Research at the ILCB is further supported by a team of 5 engineers and technicians who guide the treatment of the data acquired within the partner platforms. It also welcomes numerous foreign colleagues for research visits.

Finally, the ILCB supports education by offering doctoral fellowships and through the development of innovative training programs.
