Welcome to the Psycholinguistics Laboratory at the University of Zürich

Our goal is to find out how linguistic diversity influences processes in the brain and how languages of extreme diversity can be learned by children. Currently the laboratory has 2 main research areas:

 

The Psycholinguistics Laboratory is headed by Sabine Stoll.
