Cognition of Language Lab (CoLLab)
Ph.D University of California at Davis
I will be accepting applications for doctoral students for Fall 2021.
My lab conducts research into the cognitive processes that contribute to human language processing, including memory operations such as encoding, storage and retrieval. We also study the effect of cognitive decline on human memory and language processing systems. We use behavioral techniques such as sentence completion, reaction times and eye-tracking as well as non-behavioral techniques such as EEG to investigate our questions. Below you can find some recent publications. If you are interested in this line of research and would like to join the lab, do not hesitate to get in touch with me at email@example.com.
