Network science approaches to human lexical knowledge
This team is applying tools of network science to the structure of lexicons of natural languages.
Thursdays, 1:00 pm

Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (Jim Magnuson & Christian Brodbeck)
We discuss psycholinguistics, cognitive neuroscience, and computational modeling.
Mondays, 10am
Cognitive and Neural Representations of Concepts and Events
The WORK meeting – Words, Objects, and the Representation of Knowledge. We talk about the cognitive and neural bases of concepts/semantic memory, events/episodic memory, and related topics in psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience. This is a joint lab meeting with Dr. Gerry Altmann’s lab.
Mondays, 2 pm
Arjona 307
Autism and Language
Our lab investigates social communication in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), linking this complex behavior to mechanistic brain processes and to genetic factors.
Wednesdays, 2:15 pm
Bous 135
Language and Brain Lab (Emily Myers, PI) Lab Meeting
We discuss speech perception, language learning, and cognitive neuroscience, especially the use of neuroimaging techniques to study language processing.
Tuesdays, 11:00 AM (Fall 2021 Semester)
BIRC Conference Room, PCSB yes!
Sheya Lab Meeting Fridays, 11 am
Bousfield A201D
Auditory Brain Research Lab (Erika Skoe, PI)
Our lab investigates the neural processing of sound across the lifespan and it links low-level sensory processes to complex human behaviors and diverse life experiences (including bilingual experience, musical experience, socio-economic disadvantaged experience)
Mondays 12:30 pm (time changes each semester)
PCSB 110 yes
Coppola Lab Meeting and Study of Language and Math Thursdays, 1:00 pm, email for videoconference link (day/time for lab meeting changes each semester) yes
Sign Language Research and Discussion Group (SLRDG, pronounced “slur-dog”): Co-facilitated with Dr. Diane Lillo-Martin in Linguistics. An informal, interdisciplinary meeting where we discuss research related to sign languages and their structure. The language of the meeting is ASL and ASL-English interpretation is provided. Thursdays, 9:30-10:45am (day/time are consistent each semester) email for videoconference link yes
A joint lab meeting held weekly with faculty and graduate students from (primarily) Linguistics and Developmental Psychology who study child language acquisition. The lab meetings include practice presentations, discussions of research in progress, and discussion of interesting talks people have heard at major conferences (e.g. GALA, GALANA, BUCLD).
Fall 2021 dates: 11/4, 11/18, 12/2 yes
Naigles Gradlab Lab meetings Tuesday afternoons for Fall 2021 yes
Open Lab …..for folks interested in questions related to Science Communication and Visualization
Etan Behavioral Neuroscience lab we are interested in relating brain processes to learning, memory and navigation in rats. Projects include learning through observation and the response of individual brain cells to a change in the environment training rats on various tasks – throughout the week; Our primary research interests fall into three main themes:
(1) Experimental investigation of learning and memory
(2) Longitudinal and individual difference analysis of emerging executive functions
(3) Neuroscience foundations of socio-cognitive development
Weekly lab meetings in Storrs typically Fridays 1:30pm. However, may change with semester yes (although primary in-person activies are based at Waterbury during the summer)
UConn Laboratory for Spoken Language Processing (SLaP Lab); Wednesdays, 1:30 – 2:30 PM via Zoom (Fall 2021) Yes
