The Language & Brain Lab is a research group that seeks to investigate the nature of meaning from a neurological and psychological perspective. Lab members are interested in a variety of issues in psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and cognitive science. Updates on the Lab’s research activities are available on the Lab News webpage.
