Wicha Lab: Brain, Language, and Cognition

Welcome to the Wicha Lab!

Our Mission

The Wicha lab focuses on understanding how the human brain processes language in real time using both behavioral and brain imaging techniques. In particular event-related brain potentials (ERPs), which is a non-invasive direct measure of electrical brain activity with excellent precision in the time domain are used to investigate the neural time course of language.

Overview of Our Research

The Wicha lab focuses on three primary areas:

  1. Neural time course of language comprehension
  2. Bilingualism
  3. Interface between language and other cognitive processes
