Fall 2016 Lab News

Forthcoming papers from the lab this fall are on an unusually wide range of topics.  Starns, Chen, and Staub (in press) use eye movements to investigate the forced choice recognition memory paradigm; Staub, Dillon, and Clifton (in press) find that readers do have difficulty with the matrix verb following an object relative clause; and Kingston, Levy, Rysling, and Staub (in press) learn more about the timing of the classic Ganong effect on speech perception by recording participants’ eye movements.

  • Starns, J. J., Chen, T., & Staub, A. (in press). Eye movements in forced-choice recognition: Absolute judgments can preclude relative judgments. Journal of Memory and Language.
  • Staub, A., Dillon, B., and Clifton, C., Jr. (in press). The matrix verb as a source of comprehension difficulty in object relative sentences. Cognitive Science.
  • Kingston, J., Levy, J., Rysling, A., & Staub, A. (in press). Eye movement evidence for an immediate Ganong effect. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception & Performance

The lab meeting time this Fall will be Friday at 2:00.  We will not meet every week.

Visitor news:  Francesca Foppolo was here again this summer; we worked on understanding agreement with disjunctive subjects.  We welcome Noemi Farina Diaz this semester, a visiting PhD student from the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain, and Language.

Fall 2016 Openings for Undergraduate Research Assistants

I expect to take on a couple of new undergraduate Research Assistants in the Eyetracking Lab in Fall 2016.  Interested students should contact me (Adrian Staub) by email.  Research Assistants receive course credit through Psych 398B.  Background in cognitive psychology and/or linguistics is helpful, but not required.  However, an interest in these topics is required!
