Samer Nour Eddine gave an invited slide presentation at the Society for the Neurobiology of Language 2021 Virtual Edition. The title of his talk is "Divide & Concur: A Predictive Coding Account of the N400 Event-Related Potential Component".
Gina joined the Steering Committee for a new international organization called Diverse International Scientific Consortium for Research in Thought, Language and Communication in Psychosis (DISCOURSE). The organization’s aim is to promote collaboration across multiple disciplines such as computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychiatry and clinical methodology to better assess and describe language and thought disturbances. By coordinating efforts to standardize approaches to describing and measuring communication disturbances in both...
Congrats to Samer Nour Eddine, who received one of two student merit awards for an abstract submitted to the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language. Sam will be presenting his work on a predictive coding account of the N400 at the meeting in October.
Thank you to Dr. Nicholas Breitborde for hosting Gina's virtual visit to the Early Psychosis Intervention Center (EPICENTER) at the Ohio State University Department of Psychiatry, where she gave an invited talk at the EPICENTER Speaker Series: "Language, Thought and Communication in Psychosis: A Predictive Coding Framework".
Congratulations to Sam Nour Eddine who defended his Masters thesis, "Divide and Concur: A Predictive Coding Account of the N400 ERP Component". Sam's committee members were: Gina Kuperberg (advisor), Ariel Goldberg, Michael Spratling (King's College London), Trevor Brothers and Lin Wang.
Thank you to Emiliano Zaccarella, Caroline Beese, Stan van der Burght, Angela D. Friederici, Matteo Maran, Giorgio Papitto, Joëlle Schroën, and Patrick C. Trettenbrein, for hosting Gina and Lin's virtual visit to the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive & Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany, where they gave an invited talk at the Leipzig Lectures on Language: Does hierarchical predictive coding mediate language comprehension? Evidence from computational modeling and MEG/EEG.
Thank you to Dr. Ron Mangun for hosting Gina's virtual visit to the Center for Mind and Brain at UC Davis, where she gave an invited talk at the Exploring the Mind Lecture Series: “Does hierarchical predictive coding mediate language comprehension? Evidence from multimodal neuroimaging.”
Congratulations to Feng Cheng who defended his Senior Honors Thesis, "Using Single-Trial Representational Similarity Analysis with EEG to track semantic similarity in emotional word processing." Feng's committee members were: Gina Kuperberg, Elizabeth Race, and Lin Wang.
Congratulations to Santiago Noriega who defended his Senior Honors Thesis, "Using a state-of-the-art language model to probe mechanisms of language production: Insights from GPT-2." Santiago's committee members were: Gina Kuperberg, Ayanna Thomas, and Trevor Brothers.
