Indiana University Bloomington

 

The Language and Cognition Lab (LaCL) is an experimental linguistics lab directed by Professor Charles Lin at Indiana University. LaCL conducts research on the cognitive aspects of language, focusing on sentence and discourse processing, lexical access, phonological awareness, speech perception, and language acquisition. We are also interested in the interrelation between language and other cognitive capacities such as mathematics, space, and music.

 

 

  • We are recruiting Korean participants for Prof. Darcy and Prof. Lin's EEG project. Please contact Chien-Han if you are interested in participating in the experiment.
  • Happy New Year! Welcome to Spring 2019!
  • The Fulbright scholar, Siqi Lyu, who was with us a few years ago, has finished her dissertation in China and has come back to Bloomington to visit us! As an in-house eye-tracking specialist, she will give a workshop on the eye-tracking methodology on December 6th! Please come join us!
  • We have started collecting EEG data for the Korean perceptual epenthesis project (Collabrated with Prof Isabelle Darcy and Prof Chung-Lin Martin Yang).
