  • 研究领域:

Professor Bencie Woll’s research interests mainly focus on the neural mechanisms of language and cognition in deaf populations, including the linguistics of sign language, sign language and gesture and their neural underpinnings, sign language acquisition, and atypical sign language, as seen in acquired neurological disorders, such as aphasia.

沃尔教授的研究专长在于聋人语言与认知的脑机制领域,包括手语语言学、手语失语症、手语和手势与其脑机制以及非典型语言障碍(如自闭症儿童、阿尔茨海默症患者)等。

  • 研究成果:

She has published almost 200 papers in a large number of journals, including Behavioral and Brain Sciences (IF=20.4), Trends in Cognitive Sciences (IF=17.9), Nature Communications (IF=11.3), The Lancet (IF=44), Brain, (IF=10.1), Neurology (IF=8.2), Neuroimage (IF=5.5), Human Brain Mapping (IF=4.9), Neuroscience Behavioral Review (IF=8.6), Brain and Language, Lingua and other top journals in different academic areas. She has authored and edited several books published by Cambridge University Press, Mouton de Gruyter and other famous presses in the world. The Linguistics of BSL: an Introduction, which she co-authored, won the Deaf Nation Award in 1999 and the British Association of Applied Linguistics Book Prize in 2000. Professor Bencie Woll is the reviewer for many well-known journals, such as Brain, Cortex, Cognition, Nature Communications, Neuroimage, Language and Cognition, Biological Psychology. She has also served as a reviewer for international and national funding programmes, including the European Science Foundation, Wellcome Trust, National Science Foundation (USA), etc.

沃尔教授在相关领域发表论文近200篇,包括《行为和脑科学》(Behavioral and Brain Sciences, IF=20.4)、《认知科学进展》(Trends in Cognitive Sciences, IF=17.9)、《自然·通讯》(Nature Communications, IF=11.3)、《柳叶刀》(The Lancet, IF=44)、脑(Brain, IF=10.1)、《神经病学》(Neurology, IF=8.2) 、《神经影像学》(Neuroimage, IF=5.5)、《人类大脑图谱》(Human Brain Mapping, IF=4.9)、《神经科学行为综述》(Neuroscience Behavioral Review, IF=8.6)、《脑和语言》(Brain and Language)、《言语》(Lingua)等各领域的顶尖杂志;作为主编或参与编写,在剑桥大学等顶尖出版社出版的书籍达几十本,其中作为作者之一的《英国手语语言学导论》(The Linguistics of BSL: an Introduction)获得了1999年英国国家聋人奖(Deaf Nation Award)2000年英国应用语言学协会图书奖(British Association of Applied Linguistics Book Prize)。沃尔教授还同时担任《脑》、《皮层》、《认知》、《自然·通讯》、《神经影像学》、《语言和认知》、《生物心理学》等多个国际知名杂志的审稿人以及欧洲科学基金会、威康信托基金会、美国自然科学基金会等多项世界级和国家级基金的评委。
