Psycholinguistics Lab Home

In the Psycholinguistics Lab, we investigate language production and comprehension in native and non-native speakers. The lab comprises the Behavioral Lab (Hammond Hall 130), the Eye-Tracking Lab (Trimble Hall 217D), and the Electroencephalography (EEG) Lab (Trimble Hall 213). The Behavioral Lab features four stations for running experiments on DMDX, which is freeware for stimulus presentation and data recording. At these stations, it is possible to run a range of experimental tasks, including lexical decision, (word/picture) naming, semantic categorization, moving-window self-paced reading, maze task self-paced reading, (speeded) grammaticality judgment, sentence matching, and elicited production, among many others. The Eye-Tracking Lab houses an EyeLink1000 eye tracker (SR Research) that is used primarily to investigate eye movement patterns during reading (but that can be used for a variety of other experiment types). The EEG Lab has a 32-channel Biosemi EEG system that is used to investigate neurophysiological responses associated with language processing.
