Dr. Bohland's research activities focus on understanding the structural and functional architecture of neural systems in the human brain, with emphasis on those that support speech and language processes. Our group uses an integrative approach that combines computational, informatics, and experimental brain imaging methods. We gather new data, primarily through brain imaging, to inform contemporary theories of speech / language function, and we analyze large existing data sets. An area of focus is in linking the molecular / genetic level of organization to the neural circuits / systems, and behavioral levels.

Dr. Bohland serves as the Associate Director of Boston University's Cognitive Neuroimaging Center. He is additionally affiliated with several interdisciplinary neuroscience initiatives centered at Boston University:
