Many congratulations to Tzu-yun who has successfully defended her dissertation Prediction and Memory Retrieval during Dependency Resolution.

The work combines electroencephalography, syntax, cognitive psychology and computational modeling to characterize how predictive mechanisms interact with memory retrieval – through the guise of interference effects – during language comprehension . The first paper from the dissertation is out in Neuropsychologia!

Tzu-yun is moving on to a research position in the department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago in February. We are so proud!
