Psycholinguistics Group, led by Matthew Crocker, combines experimental psycholinguistic research with computational modelling of the mechanisms which underlie human lexical, syntactic and semantic processing. Core areas of research include:

Probabilistic and information theoretic models of human sentence processing
Eye-tracking studies of written language comprehension
Visual-world studies of situated spoken language understanding and dialogue
Connectionist models of situated language processing
Embodied models of spoken comprehension and attention

Our courses are offered to students as part of the BSc programme in Computational Linguistics, and MSc. in Language Science and Technology, which includes the possibility to specialize in Computational Psycholinguistics.
