The neurolinguistics lab had two talks at the first annual Graduate Linguistics Expo at Michigan State:
Graduate students Patrick Kelley and Alicia Parrish concluded their 2 week trip to Iceland, where they completed the latest modification on the neurolinguistic study of measure phrase headed compounds. Integral to the success of this project were the collaborators from Haskoli Islands: Matthew Whelpton, Þorhalla Guðmundsdóttir Beck, and Brynhildur Stefánsdóttir.
The lab is traveling en masse to the Society for the Neurobiology of Language, Chicago, October 15-17, where we have these 5 presentations:
Drew Trotter presented his work "Tracking perceptual change in second language learners of Spanish using EEG" at the 33rd Second Language Research Forum at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. This project uses the mismatch negativity to look for changes in the perception of L1 and L2 contrasts as L2 experience grows.
