Postdocs MOHAMMAD MOMENIAN firstname.lastname@example.org HKU | ResearchGate | Google Scholar Mohammad’s research at LCS is concerned with the interface between morpho-syntactic and semantic factors during language comprehension. More particularly, he studies multi-word expressions and constructions such as light verb constructions and a variety of other compounds from a cross-linguistic perspective. He investigates the representation and spatio-temporal dynamics of such constructions using fMRI and EEG.

She worked 8 years in clinical practice as a neuropsychologist and 7 years in education as a lecturer. Her main practical interest lies in the area of brain fitness, neurohacking, and other ways to reach optimal brain performance. Currently, Maria works in the field of cognitive assessment in stroke. She translated and validated the Oxford Cognitive Screen into the Russian language. In the upcoming projects, Maria seeks to determine cognitive difficulties on different stages of the cerebrovascular disease and its connections with the brain structure.
PHILIP THIERFELDER (Melbourne) email@example.com ResearchGate | Phil is interested in the cognitive processes involved in reading Chinese, particularly among deaf signers from Hong Kong. His current research investigates how the phonological systems of Cantonese and Hong Kong Sign Language influence comprehension during sentence reading.
