Keywords: Language learning
Grammar, aptitude
fMRI

Artificial grammar learning
Abstract: This thesis aims at providing insights in the neural mechanisms and brain structures underlying individual differences in second language acquisition. It reports on a series of experiments investigating neural correlates of novel grammar learning and of the analytical component of language aptitude, using a variety of neuroimaging methods: functional magnetic resonance imaging, diffusion tensor imaging and electroencephalography.
