Dr. Mohammad Momenian


Dr. Mohammad Momenian is currently Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Dr. Momenian has a PhD in Neurolinguistics. He has two main research strands. One is to look into how language-specific properties have an effect on the neural representation and processing of languages in the brain. The other, more recent, strand focuses on the role of individual differences in modifying age-related decline in language comprehension in the older population. He employs different neuroimaging modalities such as EEG and fMRI along with ecologically valid behavioural measurements for both of his research strands. Using a multi-dimensional approach, he endeavours to present a thorough picture of the language and brain across the lifespan amid diverse populations.
