The research in the lab focuses on the following issues:

Language and the Brain

How is language organized in the brain? We address this issue by studying brain damaged patients with language impairments.

Word Production

How do we choose the correct word when speaking? Analysis of speakers' errors helps us to understand how we do it.


We investigate language production in a number of languages - English, Italian, Spanish, Chinese(Mandarin), German, Korean, and perhaps more in the future.

How do we read and write?

How does literacy effect our cognition? The study of dyslexics, illiterate subjects, and brain damaged patients helps us to understand these questions.
