The Second Language Acquisition and Sentence Processing Lab supports all manner of processing research and is headed by Laurent Dekydtspotter.
The Second Language Acquisition and Sentence Processing Lab is equipped with 4 PCs and a portable eye-tracking system on a laptop. We also have a PC workstation equipped with Matlab and EEGLAB.
This work made possible thanks to the shared facilities of the Imaging Research Facility, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Dr. Sharlene Newman, Director, and Isaiah Innis, EEG Technician.
The learning of second and foreign languages is a rich and fascinating process involving linguistic, psychological, cultural, and social dimensions. The Indiana University Department of Second Language Studies is dedicated to teaching and research on the structure, acquisition, and use of nonnative language in both instructed and contact contexts.
