The Attentive Listener in the Visual World
POSTPONED - NEW DATES TO BE DETERMINED
University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT
AttLis addresses multi-modal cognition with an emphasis on the interaction between language and vision. More specifically, there is a central focus on how attentional and visual processes interact with spoken and written language processing. Why are attention and vision crucial to language comprehension? How does each inform and mediate the other in moment-to-moment processing and in language development over the lifespan?
This will be the seventh AttLis meeting, and the first in North America. It is scheduled to coincide with two nearby meetings: the CUNY Human Sentence Processing Conference (UMass-Amherst, March 19-21) and the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (Boston, March 14-17).
