The Word Lab
How do we understand language?
How do we recognise individual words printed on the screen?
How do we recognise individual spoken words?
How do we know what these words mean?
How do we put these words together to understand whole sentences?
Researchers at the Word Lab conduct psychological and brain-imaging experiments in order to answer these fundamental questions about how people are able to understand both spoken and written language.
