Dr. Devlin investigates the neuroscience of language and communication. At one level, he investigates the basic brain mechanisms of language including speaking, listening and reading. In addition, he is interested in how language is used in the real world, investigating the psychology and neuroscience of communication. This has applications to marketing and business more generally, but also to government, health care, education and the charity sector, all of whom use basic marketing methods to influence behaviour.
