What are the mechanisms underlying rapid, incremental on-line language comprehension?
- How do preschool children develop fast and interactive processing system that allows them to successfully employ multiple sources of information on-line?
- Do bilingual speakers to rely on two independent sets of processing mechanisms or is the nature of the bilingual processing system universal?
The answers to these questions come from experimental studies in my experimental psycholinguistic laboratory that utilize eye-tracking, both the Visual World Paradigm and eye-movement recordings in reading, to study language processing in real time. Research in my laboratory focuses on both adults and children, and on several languages–English, Russian, Bulgarian, Norwegian, and German.
I am a native of Moscow, Russia, and bring in a strong international perspective to my research and teaching.
