Trevor Brothers gave a talk at the 33rd Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing, held virtually by the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The title of his talk was "Proportional semantic pre-activation during sentence comprehension: Evidence from ERPs." See here for an abstract, here for the talk slides, and here for a video recording of Trevor's talk (the talk starts at 00:26:30, questions start at 00:48:20, and the talk ends at 00:57:20)
Lin Wang, Edward Wlotko, Edward Alexander, Lotte Schoot, Minjae Kim, Lena Warnke, and Gina Kuperberg have had their paper, "Neural evidence for the prediction of animacy features during language comprehension: Evidence from MEG and EEG Representational Similarity Analysis," accepted for publication in the Journal of Neuroscience.
Trevor Brothers, Edward Wlotko, Lena Warnke, and Gina Kuperberg have had their paper, "Going the extra mile: Effects of discourse context on two late positivities during language comprehension," accepted for publication in Neurobiology of Language.
Congratulations to Tori Sharpe, who defended her Master's thesis, "Understanding the time course of privileged access to emotional knowledge in the brain: Evidence from ERPs and representational similarity analysis." Tori's committee members were Gina Kuperberg, Ari Goldberg, and Lin Wang. See here for photos from Tori's defense.
Congratulations to Trevor Brothers, who received the PFA Award at the 2020 Cognitive Neuroscience Society Annual Meeting for his abstract, "Distinct neural signatures of semantic retrieval and event updating during discourse comprehension."
