Language & Brain Lab

We are interested in how semantic, discourse, and morpho-syntactic combinatorial processes are integrated at the representational, processing, and neurological levels. We are also interested in how these processes connect with other cognitive capacities such as memory. To this end, we capitalize on evidence from language deficits, functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography, real-time processing techniques such as cross-modal lexical decision, and self-paced reading. The phenomena we focus on include argument structure, anaphora resolution, and so-called “enriched composition.”
