Research summary

Research carried out in my laboratory concerns psychological and neural mechanisms of human language use with a special emphasis on how conceptual and linguistic information are integrated. Our most important contributions to date include development of a theoretical framework for sentence production, and development of explicit computational models of lexical semantic representation informed by cognitive science and neuroscience. At present, our two main projects address: (1) the relationship between language and thought in spoken and signed languages; (2) the representation of abstract knowledge.
