Research Interests

Dr. Wicha’s research focuses on understanding how the brain processes language in real time using both behavioral and brain imaging techniques. The lab has three primary areas of research that encompass their work:

  1. Neural time course of language comprehension
  2. Cognitive neuroscience of bilingual language and cognition
  3. Interface between language and other cognitive processes (e.g., math)
