Evaluating the properties of these biases provides a critical way of trying to understand what we mean by the self – a longstanding quest to numerous disciplines (e.g., psychology, behavioural science, philosophy, neuroscience).

This project investigates how speakers adapt to conversational partners in sentence production. Psycholinguistic theories assume that speakers adapt implicitly to the linguistic input they receive on a daily basis. Read more

Consequences of predictive language processing for learning and memory

Language arrives at a rate of 150-300 words per minute. a rapid input stream that needs to be decoded at high speed. There is now an emerging consensus that the input is to some extent predictable, and that the brain generates predictions about likely upcoming input, which may provide a head start on processing.
