About Our Lab

In “Speaking: From intention to articulation”, Levelt (1989) wrote that “Production is the stepchild of psycholinguistics.” Nearly 30 years later, this is no longer true. Production research is now both extensive and well integrated into the psycholinguistic family. This integration is aided by the fact that we are now beginning to understand how production sits within the cognitive system, how it interacts with our abilities to perceive, attend, learn, and remember.
