Megan Boudewyn, PhD
In my research I use a cognitive neuroscience approach to study language processing. In particular, I focus on the neural dynamics of how executive control, memory and attention processes are engaged during language comprehension. A major emphasis of my research concerns the extent to which variability in these processes determines how individuals comprehend language (individual differences). To address these questions, I typically use a combination of electrophysiological (EEG) and behavioral methods.
