My main research interests are in testing Neurolinguistic and Psycholinguistic theories of sentence processing using methods such as fMRI, self-paced reading, planned production, and cross modal lexical priming. Much of this work has been based on studying the role of grammatical (ie, long distance dependencies) as well as other cognitive processes (ie, memory) in processing sentences and how they interact. More recently I have been investigating the structure of conceptual semantics/semantic memory (our knowledge about the world) from both a neurological and behavioral perspective. Establishing the relationship between these two cognitive processes is a goal of future research.
