Language and Literacy

The research conducted in this theme investigates adult language and literacy ability. This is from both a behavioural and cognitive standpoint. Much of the work in this area looks at cognitive processing, which occurs during the comprehension and production of language. To investigate this, members of this theme use a combination of behavioural, psychometric, EEG and eye-tracking measures.
