EEG/ERP Linguistic Research

We will present our EEG/ERP laboratory and a basic ERP linguistic experiment. Our EEG Laboratory is equipped with one EEG/ERP recording system. For stimulus presentation, the Lab uses E-Prime and Psychtoolbox. EEG is an electrophysiological monitoring method that is used to record the brain’s electrical activity. ERP denotes electrophysiological responses or electrocortical potentials triggered by stimulation and firing of neurons. A specific psychological event or a sensor can be used to generate the stimulation. We use three major sources of ERP stimulation: visual, auditory, and tactile. In language research, we investigate how language processing unfolds over time or we test the models of cognitive processes and evaluate how these models map the brain.
