Lexical Processing
Understanding the mechanisms and processes that underlie word recognition has long been a central research area in experimental psychology and cognitive science. This module surveys state-of-the-art models, theories, and methods in lexical processing. Specifically, students will review, discuss, and critically evaluate primary empirical and theoretical articles that have been influential in helping us understand how readers/listeners effortlessly recognize and comprehend words.
