Project description

Working memory is involved in comprehension and production of sentences, on the one hand (memory for previous words, for th word order, for syntactic information, …) and is supported, on the other hand, by language-related information (cf. memory of meaningful word groups versus single words). In this research project, this mutual interaction of working memory and sentence processing is further investigated by means of reading and working memory tasks.
