Language and Executive Function Development

Using behavioral, survey, and electroencephalography (EEG) methodology, the Cognitive Development Lab examines the interplay between executive functions, motivation, and language development across the lifespan.

Currently, the lab is examining neural processing differences between monolinguals and bilinguals with different language experiences.

Other directions include the examination of motivational and environmental factors that affect language growth and perceptions of linguistic abilities across childhood and early adolescence.
