Emily Myers, assistant professor of speech, language and hearing sciences at UConn, was recently featured in an article in UConn Today regarding her recent aphasia research in collaboration with Carl Coelho and Jennifer Mozeiko. By using UConn’s powerful new fMRI scanning software, Myers has been able to identify the specific neural regions in the brain that are impacted by aphasia.
IGERT faculty William Snyder and Marie Coppola, and IGERT trainees Emma Nguyen and Laura Snider are featured in a video describing a experiment involving a puppet named Gobu on how children learn language.
Members of Solab (PI: Whitney Tabor) and members of Gerry Altmann’s and Eiling Yee’s labs met this past Friday to discuss on-going projects. While Solab focuses mainly on sentence processing experiments and computational modeling to understand psycho-linguistic phenomena, current projects in the Altmann and Yee labs use EEG and fMRI techniques to study event cognition and conceptual processing. A major theme in the discussions was how to best integrate data from a variety of sources to constrain theories of cognition and language processing. We are excited to see if any new projects result from this lab invasion!
