Welcome to the Lab!

We are primarily interested in how the human mind “does” language. In particular, we focus on sentence and multi-sentence comprehension - how, for example, we interpret in real time (i.e. as each word is encountered, one-by-one) the “events” described by those sentences. How do we track the different objects that take part in an event? Or keep track of the different things that happen to those objects? Our lab uses a range of behavioral and neuroscientific methods to address these and other questions.

brain2Our lab consists of a vibrant mix of postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate researchers, using tools such as eye-tracking, EEG, and fMRI. The lab is affiliated to the CT Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences. You can find out more, including how to join the lab, by selecting from the menu items above.
