In the Sentence Processing Lab, we investigate the cognitive and neurophysiological basis of language processing and production in the adult, healthy brain. Our primary focus is the study of online sentence processing in Hebrew.
Among other things, we are interested in how syntactic dependencies are formed, how different types of syntactic and lexical predictions are generated, and how non-linguistic factors affect online processing. A major objective of our research is to understand the processing strategies of Hebrew speakers, and the ways in which they are shaped by the grammar of the language.
We use a variety of methods, including self-paced reading, event-related potentials (ERPs), priming, acceptability judgements, and more.
