One mind, two languages:
Welcome to the Lemhöfer Language Lab
We are a research group that investigates, very generally speaking, the (neuro-)cognition of bi- and multilingualism: How are two or more languages handled within the same brain?
We are based at the Centre for Cognition, which is part of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Head of the group is Kristin Lemhöfer.
Xiaochen’s paper ‘Monitoring of language selection errors in switching: Not all about conflict’, (one of) the first on response-locked measures (error-related negativities) in the EEG during (bilingual) speaking, has now been published in PLOS ONE!
We just came back from a productive and also not un-enjoyable writing week in Mallorca (Xiaochen was unable to join us, and Mónica is missing on the photo). Look forward to the products hopefully being published soon!
Ronny Bujok started on october 1st, 2018, as a student assistant in our group. Welcome!
Katya Slesareva has started as a Master student in our lab! She will join Anne Mickan in investigating mechanisms of L2 attrition.
Our paper “Another cup of TEE? The processing of second language near-cognates in first language reading” (authored by Kristin Lemhöfer, Lynn Huestegge, and Kimberley Mulder) has now appeared in Language, Cognition and Neuroscience.
