Language and Cognition Laboratory


The Language and Cognition Laboratory investigates the cognitive and neural underpinning of human language. 

Within this broad area, our research centres around developing theoretical frameworks for how humans learn, represent and use meaning informed by computational cognitive science and neuroscience. 

More recently our research has been/is supported by funding from ESRC, Nuffield, EU and Leverhulme.

The methodologies we use include:

  • behavioural experimentation (e.g., computer based RTs, accuracy)
  • psychophysics (e.g., continuous flash suppression, CFS, in collaboration with Bahador Bahrami)
  • Eye tracking (see Language and Cognition Lab)
  • Computational Modelling (probabilistic modelling)
  • EEG (in collaboration with Leun Otten)
  • fMRI at BUCNI (in collaboration with Joe Devlin and Marty Sereno)
