My primary area of research is psychology and cognitive neuroscience of language, spanning from sentence processing and speech perception to acquisition of syntax and meaning. My key interest is to explore degree to which the speaker's use of grammatical knowledge guides and expedites their real-time language processing. My research uses a combination of behavioral (reaction time studies, comprehension tasks with children) and electro- and magnetoecephalographic techniques (EEG and MEG) to elucidate processing mechanisms used by humans to ensure an effortless and effective language communication.
My research on speech perception, namely, investigation of early EEG responses from the auditory cortex, has straightforward applications for study and diagnosis of different neurological conditions. In 2007, in collaboration with Dr Andrea Tales (University of Swansea), I started research into early sensory processing in dementia. Our study, supported via a BBSRC-funded PhD studentship to George Stothart, investigates early EEG responses to audio, visual and audio-visual stimuli in patients Alzheimer's Disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).
