Summary and goodbye

Prof. Bastiaanse addresses her goodbye at the participants of Language testing during awake brain surgery.
7.5
We have now reached the end of our six weeks course on language testing during awake brain surgery. We have gathered a lot of new knowledge together. We have started to grasp the complexity of language and its representation in the brain. We were introduced to the procedure and necessity of an awake brain surgery in our particular patient group. We learned about the prerequisites of a good language test and its application. And we even developed and tested a subpart of it ourselves. And we got to know the latest developments in the field of neuroscience and it’s promising future. We hope you enjoyed exploring this topic with us.

For more information, and intensive courses on language testing and different patient groups, please check out our international masters of science and PhD programmes in the links below. The educators and mentors would like to thank you for being so involved in the discussions and assignments. Your feedback is valuable information for us for future runs of this course and for improving test development world wide. So please share this with us. Feel free to contact us if you have any remaining questions.
You have reached the end of our Language testing during awake brain surgery course. Professor Bastiaanse would like to wish you a goodbye in this last video.

As mentioned in the beginning of the week, this course has possibly sparkled the interest in the field of LTABS in some of you.

The course you are about the finish is an appetiser to what the University of Groningen has in its curriculum: linguistics at bachelor level, postgraduate degrees on clinical linguistics and experimental linguistics at master level and even PhD programs dedicated to this topic. Here is a list of each of them, including a link that brings you to the official websites of the programme.

Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics

Research Master in Linguistics

European Master in Clinical Linguistics

IDEALAB PhD program

CLCG PhD positions

We hope to see you on campus!
