What Your Eyes Reveal When You Listen.
Please join the Serie Center for “What Your Eyes Reveal When You Listen.” Ariel James (Psychology) will discuss research that relies on the tracking of eye movements, one of the many observable behaviors that psychologists use to make guesses about the workings of the mind. Since the 90s, psycholinguists have sat people in front of eye trackers while they listen to speech as a way to understand language processing as it unfolds over time. In the decades that followed, the so-called "visual world paradigm" has taught us about how we recognize words, make meaning, and unpack grammatical structure in all sorts of different situations. In her talk, she will share her attempts to characterize individual differences in eye movement behavior within this paradigm. An email with the link to join the event will be sent via swap-news. All faculty and staff are welcome.
