We study the nature and causes of communication difficulties in children, especially Developmental Language Disorder.

The Oxford Study of Children's Communication Impairments (OSCCI) was funded for many years by the Wellcome trust, headed by Principal Investigator, Professor Dorothy Bishop to study the underlying nature of children's communication problems, especially developmental language disorder, and children with an additional X or Y chromosome. Since 2016, we have been funded by a programme grant from the European Research Council (ERC), and our current primary focus is on how the two sides of the brain process language (language laterality) and how this relates to language functioning. We are also actively involved in work to encourage open and reproducible research.

COLA consortium

The Consortium on Language Asymmetry (COLA) is a group of research teams united by an interest in understanding language lateralisation in the brain. It was set up in 2018 with the aims of sharing knowledge, data and materials, and conducting collaborative experiments. For more information, please see our website:
