Welcome to Tori Sharpe!

September 5, 2017
Welcome to Tori Sharpe who is joining our lab as a new graduate student. Tori comes from the NYU Neuroscience of Language Lab where she worked with Alec Marantz on aspects of form typicality and syntactic prediction in English using MEG. In the lab, she plans to continue her research on neurolinguistic processing, with emphasis on interactions with emotion and neuropsychiatric disorders.
