A distinguish seminar was held dated on 24th.september.2019 at the department of Cognitive neuroscience, which was attended together by students of Cognitive Neuroscience NCU as well as students of Yang Ming University. The distinguished guest speaker of the seminar was Dr. Chih-Ting Chang, a post-doctoral research fellow at the Institute of Linguistics, Academia Sinica. She welcomed to all the participants and presented an interesting topic “The predictive processes of sentence comprehension in elders and aphasia patients”.

Dr. Chih-Ting Chang deliver a talk in the domain of sentence comprehension in elders and aphasia patients. She explained the role of multiple cognitive and neural mechanism involves in reading comprehension. The aim of her research interest was to explore “The neural compensatory mechanism in elders and aphasic patients”. She presented her study findings of ERPs and FMRI by showing different pictures, which manipulated high-versus low-cloze probability of the ending words in sentence comprehension in young adults, healthy elders and aphasic patients. In addition, she also suggested different related research findings, explains that the ability to utilizing contextual information for sentence comprehension in elders may relate to structural and functional deterioration of the frontal lobe in normal aging. She conclude her talk with the findings that elders were less efficient in predicting the upcoming words.The seminar was ended with a Question and Answering session, in which the students showed interests about her talk by asking more questions.
