About Francesca Longoni

Neurolinguist trained at the Section Neurolinguistics, Dept. of Neurology, University Hospital, RWTH Aachen University (Germany). My doctoral dissertation, performed under the supervision of Prof. Dr. phil. Walter Huber, focused on sentence processing in aphasia and was successfully defended in September 2009. In Aachen, besides carrying out my Ph.D. project, I was employed as research assistant (50% position) and took part in several neuroimaging (PET and fMRI) studies both at the Section Neurolinguistics and at the Section Neuropsychology. The research projects investigated a wide range of issues within two main research lines, namely neuroanatomical correlates of grammar processing and (training induced) functional reorganization after brain damage. As for grammar, the investigations concerned single word and sentence processing and included both production and reception tasks. Currently, I am employed part time as a researcher in the project rTMS in the treatment of aphasia caused by stroke at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Department of Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation, Division of Speech and Language Pathology at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg (Sweden).
