Research Assistants – Svenja Lüll, BA

The concept of linguistic complexity and the measuring thereof are among my main research interests. Right now I am working on my master's thesis on the neuronal correlates of linguistic complexity in speech production. In addition, I have done research on the subject of prediction in sentence comprehension. To my mind, working on the general question how the human brain processes language, is most fascinating.
As a research assistant in the Neurolinguistics Lab I have worked on several projects involving various techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG), eye tracking (ET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and behavioural methods. I'm always looking forward to incorporating new technologies and statistical methods that help to bring forward various aspects of linguistic research.
