ESRC Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL)
Welcome to the Deafness Cognition and Language (DCAL) Research Centre, based at University College London and funded by the (ESRC) Economic and Social Research Council. DCAL brings together leading Deaf and hearing researchers in the fields of sign linguistics, psychology, and neuroscience. DCAL started its research in 2006 and now is in its fifth year of activity. It is the largest research centre in this field in Europe with nearly 40 staff and research students, about 1/3 of whom are Deaf. You can read about our research team and many research projects by clicking on the links at the left of this page. The vast majority of research studies on language and thought are based on languages which are spoken and heard. DCAL's research provides a unique perspective on language and thought based on Deaf people's communication. DCAL places sign languages and Deaf people in the centre of the general understanding of how language and communication work within linguistics, psychology and child development.
