About the Language Processing Lab

PI: Dr. Ming Xiang

The Language Processing Lab is broadly interested in sentence processing, experimental semantics and pragmatics, and experimental syntax. Our research projects aim at identifying the linguistic representations constructed in language comprehension and production, and the cognitive and neural mechanisms that support such representations.
