Welcome to the Reading Lab at McMaster University!
The Reading Lab targets a range of areas in psycholinguistics and corpus linguistics, with a focus on:
- visuo-oculomotor and cognitive predictors of reading success and failure;
- individual differences in word and sentence recognition among low-literacy and typical readers;
- processing of printed morphologically complex words; and
- effects of emotion on language production and comprehension.
Our research paradigms include eye-tracking, behavioral studies, large-scale norming studies, and quantitative analyses of written and spoken corpora.
