Meet the researcher: Jenni Rodd

Dr. Jennifer Rodd’s research focuses on how people are able to understand language. What are the cognitive and brain processes that are necessary to understand another person’s speech? For instance, understanding a sentence is more than simply understanding the constituent words — these need to be integrated into a larger conceptual framework and this very often involves resolving ambiguity in the meaning of words. People use a number of different strategies to do this and Jenni’s work aims to identify these, to understand how they work mechanistically, and to explore their underpinnings in the brain.
