Executive function, memory and prediction

Screen Shot 2015-10-04 at 3.38.30 PMI am also interested in the interface between domain-general cognitive mechanisms and language processing. During online sentence comprehension, people’s ability to incrementally compute various sources of information derive from visual context, discourse context, long-term linguistic knowledge and real-time language input fundamentally affects their speed to reach the interpretation as well as the final result of the interpretation. Domain-general cognitive mechanisms such as executive functions, declarative memory, and prediction shape individual’s language processing schemes and capacities.

Role of executive function:

Role of declarative memory:

Role of prediction:
