Individual
Differences

Individual variability in language abilities is often treated as a source of "noise" and discarded from scientific investigation by averaging group data. A comprehensive account of language processing, however, requires consideration of inter-individual differences as well as of commonalities. 

The goal that our lab pursues is to provide a detailed account of neurocognitive mechanisms underlying differences in language processing. This account, built on experimental and correlational approaches, will reflect how both language-specific (e.g., lexical knowledge) and domain-general (e.g., working memory) mechanisms contribute to individual differences in language processing. It establishes the link between linguistic behaviour and brain responses. It includes populations with different linguistic profiles.
