We conduct behavioral (e.g., eye-tracking) and neuroimaging (e.g., ERP) experiments to investigate the following questions*:
- How do bilinguals resolve within- and cross-language ambiguity during written and spoken language comprehension? How do individual differences in executive function, and other capacities, constrain language comprehension and production?
- Is bilingual experience and ability associated with structural and functional brain changes in healthy older adults?
- How do first and second language users learn, represent and process figurative language?
- How do neuropathological/psychiatric conditions (e.g., schizophrenia, dyslexia) affect language processes such as skilled reading?
