What is psycholinguistics?

Psycholinguistic research studies the processing - comprehension and production - of natural languages, as a means of unraveling the mechanisms undelying language use in real time, as well as shedding light on questions regarding linguistic representations. Psycholinguists employ a variety of offline and online experimental methods to understand how speakers utilize their linguistic knowledge. The observed performance patterns can also have implications for formal linguistic theory.   

Event-related potentials

Event-related potentials (ERPs), based on electroencephalography (EEG), employ the electrophysiological activity of the brain to track cognitive processes millisecond-by-millisecond. Using electrodes placed on the scalp, we record the electrical activity generated by the brain during sentence comprehension, to learn how our brain responds to different linguistic stimuli and tasks. To see for yourselves, come and participate in one of our studies!
