We are an inter-disciplinary lab doing fieldwork and laboratory research using a combination of theoretical and methodological tools from a range of disciplines such as Anthropology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Linguistics, and Experimental Psychology.
We specialise in the following areas:
- Language-mediated perception and cognition (linguistic/cultural relativity)
- Bilingual Cognition (learning mechanisms/cognitive consequences of bilingualism)
- Perceptual and statistical learning using artificial grammars
- Lexical processing/representation
