Research

Overview

The malleability of verb biases

Projects

My research investigates how the brain updates existing information to account for new input. Specifically, whether grammatical biases for individual verbs can be modified and whether this modification is consolidated by sleep. I am also interested in how we represent the knowledge of other people and how we use that to monitor their understanding in conversation.
