UACS students visit Clinic of Neurology as a part of Neurolinguistics course

On 18 Dec 2018, the UACS School of Foreign Languages students attending the Introduction to Linguistics course taught by their instructor and Dean, Prof Dr Marjana Vaneva, visited the Clinic of Neurology, Faculty of Medicine in Skopje.

Neurolinguistics is a part of Linguistics that studies the connection between language and the brain, which is why this Linguistics group visited a neurologist to talk about the language centres in the brain, the role of the brain in language use and language/speech production, the kinds of aphasia – Broca, and Wernicke’s aphasia and how patients with brain damage or disorders use the language, how is language restored once the damage occurs and how the language is learnt during the treatment. The neurologist who shared with the students her expertise and experience was Prof. Dr. Emilija Cvetkovska, head of the Epilepcy Department at the Clinic of neurology, St. Cyril and Methodius University Skopje, who has spent more than a year and a half as a Fellow of the Epilepcy Centre at the Clevelend Clinic, US.

The students were interested in the discussion and participated by asking their previously prepared questions.
