My primary interest is in the cognitive science and neuroscience of language. I study the comprehension of spoken and written language in the mind/brain using interdisciplinary techniques aimed at identifying the neural processing mechanisms that support the interpretation of written text and spoken utterances. Specifically I study Arabic behavioural, neuro-psychological and neuroimaging data to determine the underlying general properties of language as a neuro-cognitive system.
