Babelfisch Lab

Language is an ability unique to humans - we speak, hear others speak, read, write and sometimes even speak to ourselves.

In our lab we study the cognitive and neurophysiological processes involved in language processing, language acquisition and other cognitive functions which are related to language. We use different methods such as EEG, eye-tracking, fNIRS, computer simulations and behavioral analyses with participants of all age groups.

We are particularily interested in how language and cognitive abilities change across development. Therefore, most of our studies focus on babies and infants.
