Age-related differences in Sentence Processing: An ERP Investigation

We aim to understand how words are retrieved during language processing, and also how such retrieval might vary between younger and older adults. During sentence comprehension, previously read information needs to be retrieved and integrated with new information for successful comprehension (e.g., in “The taxi driver was not paying attention when he hit the pole.” At ‘he’, you should remember ‘the taxi driver’). Importantly, the retrieval of a word might be slower depending on a number of factors (e.g., interference caused by the presence of other related material (i.e., competitors) or the sentence structure itself or the length of the sentence). Moreover, these differences in sentence processing may also vary across the lifespan. We will use behavioral and EEG methods to better understand these issues.
